Riverdale's Ashleigh Murray will reprise her role as Josie as a lead character in the Katy Keene spin-off series, according to Deadline.

Katy Keene will be set years in the future of Riverdale, and will reportedly follow Murray's Josie McCoy as she moves to the big city alongside future fashion designer Katy Keene to pursue their dreams of stardom. The show is described as a "musical dramedy."

Should the pilot be picked up to series, Murray would reportedly exit Riverdale. However, CW President Mark Pedowitz says there are no plans for a crossover episode to establish the new series, as it takes place years in Riverdale's future.

Archie's Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and writer Michael Grassi will executive produce Katy Keene. No timeframe for the pilot was reported.
