The CW Orders Pilots for 'Jane the Virgin' & 'Riverdale' Spinoffs!

Fans of Jane the Virgin and Riverdale can get excited because The CW has officially ordered pilots for spinoffs of both series!

Jane the Novela will be an anthology series that follows one of Jane’s fictional novels each season with the character narrating the story. The first season “will take place at a Napa Valley vineyard, where family secrets (and family members) don’t stay buried for long,” according to THR.

Gina Rodriguez will serve as one of the executive producers. She tweeted, “We got good news from the CW! Jane will be birthing a SPIN OFF!!!!! Jane The Novelas!!!”

A Riverdale spinoff titled Katy Keene will follow “the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters — including titular fashion-legend-to-be Katy Keene — as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City.” Archie Comics chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa will be running the show!

More pilot orders included an untitled Nancy Drew drama, the Batwoman pilot starring Ruby Rose, and a reboot of the 1987 vampire movie Lost Boys.
