ICYMI: Ashleigh has left the series to star in the latest Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene and she’ll still be portraying her beloved character, Josie.
The new show will follow Katy (played by Lucy Hale) and her friends who are struggling to make it in New York City.
In order to end up in NYC, Ashleigh’s character had to be written out of Riverdale and this was done through a visit from Josie’s dad. During this visit, Josie decided that she wanted to join him on tour and after a bit of convincing, he agreed.
Josie then had to tell her boyf Archie (KJ Apa) about her plans to leave, telling him “your life is here in Riverdale and mine is somewhere out there, who knows where? Maybe New York.”
Ash said goodbye to her Riverdale fam, writing on Twitter “Thank you, Season 3. And goodnight #riverdale.”
The Katy Keene series hasn’t been picked up yet so fingers crossed it will be so we can see Josie in her new city!
