This series means Hale is back on CW after her turn in the network’s series Life Sentence.
But perhaps, she is best known for playing Aria Montgomery on the beloved teen show, Pretty Little Liars.
Riverdale’s Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, as well as Michael Grassi, are the ones who took it upon themselves to create Katy Keene!
