Riverdale’s Vanessa Morgan Opens Up About Black TV Characters Marginalized as Sidekicks

Murray, 38, played Josie McCoy on Riverdale from 2017 to 2019, and she now reprises the role on the spin-off show Katy Keene alongside Lucy Hale. Murray also responded to the "diva" accusation, which also claimed she "didn't want to share the screen with other talented women."

"Lol you clearly have me mixed up with someone else," Murray recently wrote on Twitter. "I love the Pussycats more than any show ever did. If it were up to me, we'd have our own show. And you obviously don't watch Katy Keene because sis is surrounded by women. So f— all the way off."

In February, Hale, 30, told PEOPLE all about the new series, saying Katy Keene is a "passion project" that stands alone from Riverdale in tone.

“It’s a passion project because I’ve been part of it since almost the beginning,” Hale said. “We’ve been putting our heart and soul into it. It’s been like a little secret we’ve been sitting on for a while so I’m very excited to share it with everyone.”

The series follows aspiring fashion designer Katy (Hale) as she navigates her career and her relationship with her longtime wrestler boyfriend, supporting her friends and roommates along the way. One of those roommates is Riverdale's Josie (Murray) who comes to New York City to pursue a career in music.

“It’s about friendships and about finding yourself in your mid-20s,” Hale said.
