Riverdale is getting a musical spinoff to ensure we never run out of trashy TV

Riverdale prevails.

In spite of a few rough seasons of some incredibly low-calibre drama, there are in fact a lot of people still watching Riverdale.

Levitating babies and impromptu juvenile detention centre musical performances aside, this show sparks joy for a lot of viewers. They find love in a hopeless place, if you will, and now there’s more content coming to satisfy those trashy TV needs.

Yep, Riverdale is getting a spinoff. Technically, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a spinoff, but this one is dealing with characters that are actually from the Archie Comic Universe.

The CW is bringing us the new Riverdale-flavoured drama, along with teen show mastermind Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi, so expect more of the same kind of viewing experience. This is going to be a musical series based on ACU favourite Katy Keene – a model, actress, and singer in the comic series, who is aspiring to make it as a fashion designer in New York City. 

So it sounds kind of like Glee when Rachel moves to New York, except Katy is brining three of her ACU mates with her to keep her company.

If you’re into Riverdale and Glee, this sounds like the kind of show you can add to your ‘mindlessly watch’ playlist.
