Katy Keene: Meet the cast of the Riverdale spin-off
Riverdale spin-off Katy Keene is heading to The CW in 2019, here's who has joined the cast...
1. Who is in the cast of Katy Keene?
There's about to be a new icon in town, and she goes by the name of Katy Keene. Starring Lucy Hale and Ashleigh Murray (who will leave Riverdale if the series is picked up to order), Katy Keene will take place in New York City and will follow a group of twenty-somethings as they try to achieve their dreams. So far, a pilot episode has been ordered and, if the series is picked up to order at The CW, we could have a new obsession on our hands. Here's who has been cast in the show so far...
2. Lucy Hale will play Katy Keene
Pretty Little Liars alum Hale will play the main character, Katy - a bold, big-hearted and independent twenty-something New Yorker who aspires to be a fashion designer. When Katy is not working as a personal shopper at a luxury department store, she’s navigating friendship and dating in the big city. (Jamie McCarthy/Staff)
3. Ashleigh Murray will play Josie McCoy
After leaving Riverdale and moving to New York City, Murray will continue to play Josie McCoy on the spin-off. Josie will appear as a twenty-something in Katy Keene, leaving behind her teenage friends in Riverdale (yes, there's going to be a time jump). She meets record label CEO Alexander Cabot and begins her dream of becoming a successful recording artist. (Jeff Kravitz/Contributor)

5. Julia Chan will play Pepper Smith
Chan will play Pepper Smith, a New York City “It Girl” who dreams of opening her very own version of Andy Warhol’s Factory. But behind all the outrageous noise, no one quite knows where she gets all her money — or if she even has any.
6. Lucien Laviscount will play Alexander Cabot
Laviscount, who previously starred in Scream Queens, will play Alexander Cabot, the CEO of his father’s company who dreams of rebooting its dormant record label division. Instead of leaning into his family's billions like his sister, he's much more humble about things and takes the subway and secretly DJs at a dive club. (Rich Fury/Stringer)
7. Camille Hyde will play Alexandra Cabot
As Alexander's sister Alexandra Cabot, Hyde will bring to life the powerful, savvy and chic New York socialite who is an SVP at her father’s company. Both respected and feared, Alexandra is competitive with her brother, who has a very different vision for the record label. (Tibrina Hobson/Contributor)

Holtz plays Katy's love interest KO Kelly. He's a boxer with two goals in life: to fight a welterweight championship in Madison Square Garden and to marry his longtime girlfriend, Katy Keene. He's a humble guy who lives in Queens and works as a personal trainer.
9. Katherine LaNasa will play Gloria Grandbilt
LaNasa will play Gloria Grandbilt, a legendary personal shopper at the luxury department store Lacy’s. Always impeccably dressed and the queen of her domain, she demands a level of excellence from her “girls,” young assistants that few can provide.
