It’s official: the Riverdale spinoff, Katy Keene, has its leading lady! Lucy Hale will step into the shoes of the iconic Archie Comics character for CW’s newest project, which is being labeled a "musical dramedy."

According to the show’s official logline, Katy Keene will follow multiple characters from the Archie universe "as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City. [The series] chronicles the origins and struggles of four aspiring artists trying to make it on Broadway, on the runway, and in the recording studio."

Scroll down for more details about the spinoff, which is set a few years after Riverdale.

Who is Katy Keene?

The character first appeared in 1945, and is depicted as a model, actress, singer, and fashion icon. In a description from the network, the brunette is said to be "bold, big hearted, and independent… a twenty-something New Yorker who aspires to be a fashion designer. When she’s not working as a personal shopper at a luxury department store, she’s navigating friendship and dating in the big city."
