Tearful Lucy Hale Responds To Katy Keene Cancellation

A tearful Lucy Hale said she was heartbroken after her comedy-drama series Katy Keene was cancelled after one season.

The actress, 31, played an aspiring New York City fashion designer in the show, which was a spin-off from teen drama Riverdale.

Network The CW announced it would not be coming back for a second season amid reports of poor viewing figures.

A devastated Hale, best known for starring in TV mystery thriller Pretty Little Liars, shared a video to Instagram in response to the news, saying she was a “blubbering mess”.

The weeping actress said: “I have struggled all day with what I wanted to say about this or if I shouldn’t say anything or… nothing felt right, I didn’t just 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 such a  joy from top to bottom.”

Explaining the show had not been picked up for a second season, Hale said she had experienced similar disappointments during her career but “this is a bad one”.

Katy Keene Cancelled By The CW, Looking For A Potential New Home

I’m sorry but its better than Riverdale and its still going!

The CW is not too keen on Katy Keene.

On Thursday, the network weighed in on the Riverdale spin-off as the only one of its series with its fate still outstanding. Katy Keene, which stars Lucy Hale as the titular aspiring fashion designer, has become the network’s only cancellation, after its fellow freshman series Batwoman and Nancy Drew were renewed back in January.

Warner. Bros. Television is still shopping for a potential new home. After completing its first season, Katy Keene began streaming on HBO Max, so the new WarnerMedia platform could be the most promising option for the show to continue on.

Co-created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Michael Grassi, Katy Keene seemed a sure thing for the CW before its premiere, given its ties to network hit Riverdale. It even featured former Riverdale star Ashleigh Murray reprising her role as Josie, as one of the series’ aspiring dreamers trying to make it big in New York City. Despite this and Hale’s star power, the series consistently drew modest ratings.

While Riverdale and another Archie Comics-inspired series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, trade more in noir and horror tropes, Katy Keene deliberately positioned itself as more aspirational and optimistic than those shows. “Katy Keene is stepping out of the noir shadows of Riverdale and into the spotlight,” Grassi previously told EW. “We’re entering worlds like fashion, music, Broadway, drag. It’s a show about dreamers.”

“It felt to me like this could be a more romantic, optimistic, aspirational show, and Katy Keene could be the character that anchored it,” Aguirre-Sacasa added.

Now they could all use some of Katy’s optimism as the series faces an uncertain future.

‘Katy Keene’ Star Lucy Hale On Season Finale’s ‘Katy Daddy’ Drama (SPOILERS)

Spoiler alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched the Season 1 finale of “Katy Keene,” titled “Chapter Thirteen: Come Together.”

The Season 1 finale of “Katy Keene” left fans with a major cliffhanger: whether or not Leo Lacy (Cary Elwes in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo), is Katy’s (Lucy Hale) father, a possibility the budding fashion designer didn’t hesitate to blurt out at episode’s end.

“I love that Katy just jumps in immediately, like, ‘Yeah, yo, you’re my dad,’” Hale said on the Variety After-Show on Instagram Live.

Hale added that Elwes’s character might one of a few “Katy daddy” contenders, a scenario she said she wouldn’t mind seeing play out “Mamma Mia”-style in a future episode, given the show’s musical flair.

“One. Hundred. Percent,” said Hale, to that prospect.

Hale has lent her voice throughout Season 1, topping it off in its final episode with a rendition of Sara Bareilles’s “She Used to Be Mine” from the musical “Waitress.”

Lucy Hale: ‘I Knew My Dog Elvis In A Past Life’

Lucy Hale believes she knew her dog Elvis in a previous life because they are “entirely too connected”.

The Pretty Little Liars star adopted the Maltipoo in June 2016 and the canine has become so famous that he even has his own Instagram account. And in an “Ask Me Anything” video interview with Elle U.S., Lucy made the surprising admission that she believes she and Elvis were somehow connected in a past life.

In response to the request to complete the sentence, “In my past life I was…”, Lucy replied: “Absolutely in my dog Elvis’ life. I don’t know if I was his owner, or if he was my owner, or if we were friends. I totally believe in reincarnation and I know for a fact that I’ve known Elvis in a life before because we are just entirely too connected – he’s the best.”

The 30-year-old actress has been in lockdown with Elvis, who she considers her “emotional support dog”, during the coronavirus pandemic, and she “simply doesn’t know” what she would have done if she didn’t have her dog to keep her company during these unprecedented times.

And while she’s thinking about getting another pooch to keep Elvis company, she isn’t sure whether or not to make the leap.

“I’m thinking about possibly getting another one. But I just don’t know how I could love another dog as much as I love him. It just doesn’t seem possible,” she grinned.

Lucy Hale Says She Won’t Change Her Haircut For A Man

Lucy Hale doesn’t care what guys take into consideration how she appears.

In her March 2020 cowl story for Cosmopolitan, the previous “Fairly Little Liars” actress, 30, known as chopping about eight inches off of her brown hair “essentially the most liberating factor” she’s ever finished, added that she’s stunned by the opinions males appear to have relating to her magnificence look.

Lucy Hale Opened Up About Her Most Painful Tattoo

While getting a tattoo is always going to mean at least a little pain, some tattoos hurt more than others — and Lucy Hale knows this firsthand.

In total, Lucy has got thirteen tattoos so far, each carrying a different story or meaning. She has “I love you” written in her grandmother’s handwriting on her forearm, a vintage lightbulb on the back of her left arm by famed artist Doctor Woo, and an adorable little elephant tattoo on the inside of her elbow that she picked up during a trip to Cambodia. But of all her ink, there’s a clear standout when it comes to pain: the lowercase “a” on her left index finger.

In a new video interview with Wired, Lucy opened up about her tattoos and she took the chance to spill some deets about her pain tolerance, admitting her little “a” is the most painful tattoo she’s ever gotten. “It’s one of my favorite ones but it actually hurt the most!” Lucy exclaims in the video.

While the tattoo is undoubtedly super cool, it’s understandable why it was so painful. As Lucy tells it, getting the tattoo “hurt the most because it’s right on the bone.”

People who have been following Lucy (or are fans of Pretty Little Liars) probably don’t need the explanation behind this tattoo in particular. But just in case you need to jog your memory, Lucy played a character named Aria Montgomery on PLL. Fans of the show know there’s a whole lot more to explain here, but for now, just know that the cute little “a” on Lucy’s pointer finger is PLL-inspired to the core.

In fact, Lucy actually picked up the tattoo with the rest of the cast back in 2016 after it was announced that the show would be leaving the air. She shared their matching tats on Instagram, writing: “This happened,” adding “We couldn’t not get tattoos to commemorate the show! And obviously on our ‘shh’ finger.”

And all this has us thinking, does that mean we can expect a Katy Keene-themed tattoo at some point? Only time will tell!

Lucy Hale Recalls Being “Deathly Afraid” Of Being Single

Lucy Hale, Cosmopolitan 2020
Lucy Hale has come a long way since her Pretty Little Liars days.

The actress is the cover star of Cosmopolitan‘s March 2020 issue, and in her interview, she defied the public perception that she’s the stereotypical girl-next-door type, even if those are the characters she plays.

The 30-year-old star played high schooler Aria Montgomery in Freeform’s PLL and will be playing an optimistic, happy-go-lucky 20-something in the upcoming Riverdale spin-off Katy Keene. But the Hale we see on screen is far from Hale IRL.

Now that her 20s are officially behind her, the star shared with the outlet the things she’s happy to have evolved out of (for example, some of her tattoos, which she’s in the process of removing).

As she explained, “When I was younger, I was constantly wanting to be with or date someone because I was so deathly afraid of being single or by myself.”
