The CW has declined to renew the Lucy Hale-led Riverdale spinoff for a second season, but Warner Bros. TV plans to shop the show around to other outlets. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. TV's corporate sibling HBO Max, which currently carries Season 1, is the most realistic option for keeping Katy Keene alive. Premiering in February, Katy Keene, from mega-producer Greg Berlanti and co-created by Riverdale's Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, averaged 480,000 total weekly viewers throughout its 13-episode run. "Katy Keene was the only current CW series not to get a renewal for next season in January," reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "In a vote of confidence, the network at the time gave the midseason show a 13-script order ahead of its premiere. Somewhat surprising given its pedigree as a Riverdale offshoot from Berlanti Productions and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Hale’s star power and huge following, Katy Keene was a soft ratings performer."
