'Katy Keene' Canceled By The CW, But Here's Some Hopeful News...

The CW has made the decision to cancel Katy Keene after just one season on the network.

Fans shouldn’t give up hope just yet though because Deadline reports that the studio behind the show, Warner Bros. Television, is looking for a new home for the show. It’s being reported that the best bet is HBO Max as the show already has a streaming deal with the service.

The network had previously extended options on the cast to July 31, so that gives WBTV a full month to find a new network for the show. After that date, the cast has the option of looking for new jobs.

Katy Keene was a spinoff of the beloved Riverdale series. The show followed the lives and loves of four iconic Archie Comics characters — fashion legend-to-be Katy Keene (Lucy Hale), singer/songwriter Josie McCoy (Ashleigh Murray), performer Jorge Lopez/Ginger (Jonny Beauchamp), and “It Girl” Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) — as they chase their twenty-something dreams in New York City…together.

There were lots of other shows canceled by the major networks throughout the past couple months as well.

The 30-year-old actress performed the song “She Used to Be Mine,” which was written by Sara Bareilles for the Broadway musical Waitress.

Lucy explained on The Talk this week that the song is actually one of her favorite songs of all time.

“I get to sing ‘She Used To Be Mine’ from the Broadway musical Waitress, sung by Sara Bareilles. It was like one of my top three favorite songs before they told me I was going to sing this song. So, it’s kind of a full circle moment. It’s a big song to tackle, so I’m glad they trusted me with it,” Lucy said. “We have a lot of Broadway’s legends on the show and a lot of Broadway influences.”

What Is the Status of The CW's 'Katy Keene' & 'Green Arrow & The Canaries'?

The CW just revealed their 2019 – January 2020 television schedule, and fans are anxiously waiting for updates about some new and returning shows, including Arrow spinoff Green Arrow and The Canaries and Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene.

Rest assured, however: the shows are still in process, according to Mark Pedowitz on a call on Thursday (May 14), via E!.

There are “active discussions” with the studio about Green Arrow and the Canaries with Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy and Juliana Karkavy according to the exec, but it has not yet been ordered to series. Still, that and The 100 prequel series are “very much alive.”

As for Katy Keene, which stars Lucy Hale as the title character, the network has “extended its pickup option to see how well the show does once its available to stream in its entirety on The CW’s digital platforms and HBO Max once that streamer debuts in late May,” according to the report.

The CW exec says that while he was “incredibly pleased with the creative, the linear ratings have been soft. We’d like to see it perform a little bit better,” he admitted.

There’s also the Lost Boys series, which is still in development. He said he “remains keen on the project and development and production has been rolled,” according to the report.
