The CW: Katy Keene Is Not Coming Back For Season 2!

Katy Keene’s season finale happened in May 2020 and, the 13-episode-season didn’t gather much of an audience. The show’s poor rating resulted in CW to axe the show.

While Riverdale’s staggering content got upheld by Netflix, The CW failed with Katy Keene. Katy Keene is the only current CW show which didn’t get renewed. Although Katy Keene gave out a decent response, the director didn’t foresee the show to drop abruptly.

Katy Keene averaged just over a 0.1 demo rating along with 480,000 total weekly viewers. Compared to other CW shows like Batwoman and Nancy Drew, Katy Keene tanned.

However, there is a possibility of another network picking up the show. Considering the previous experiences, ‘Brooklyn nine-nine‘ was picked up by NBC right after Fox dropped it.

Lucy Hale Addresses The Audience

Lucy Hale put forth an emotional message on her Instagram. In the video, Lucy was devastated and revealed that she’s a “blubbering mess.” She is best known for her role in a TV mystery-thriller Pretty Little Liars.

While weeping, Lucy said,

“I have struggled all day with what I have to say about this or if I shouldn’t say anything or… nothing felt right, I just didn’t want to post a picture or a caption because nothing would do justice to how I feel about Katy Keene or how I feel about the people involved with it. Truly, one of the highlights of my life. Just a joy from top to bottom.”

We feel bad for Lucy and the rest of the cast, hope they recover from this cancellation and we hope Katy Keene makes a comeback!
