After the news hit the web that fan-favorite CW show Katy Keene had come to an end after only one season on the air, Lucy Hale broke down in tears while discussing her time in the Riverdale spinoff series. Now, the Pretty Little Liars alum is reflecting on the “horrible day” she found out the show had been canceled.
“It is always sad when things come to an end prematurely but in my opinion, I wanted that show to go on for many years and seasons,” the actress said during a recent interview with E! News. “The powers at be had a different plan for it…It was such a horrible day when we found out about it not coming back but seeing the response from everyone being upset and the response of everyone else who supports me was only to show how much the show was loved.”
Lucy also revealed that she knew exactly what the second season would have looked like when it aired.
“I definitely knew where Katy would go in the second season and all the plans for her so its always a bummer to see that come to a halt without you wanting it to but ultimately, I only had amazing things to say about that show and the people and everyone involved in it,” the 31-year-old said. “It really was a highlight of my career and living in NYC was amazing.”
Previously, Lucy told Entertainment Tonight that she’s finally ready to move on after the cancelation.
“I was sad about it for a week. I’m still sad about it. But I was really sad for a week,” she said in July. “I made my peace with it. I was like, ‘Get it together, Lucy. You had a great time.’ Nothing will take away from what I consider a really great season. I would rather do one awesome season that people loved than do, like, six that people are like, ‘Oh god, let it end already!’ I seriously made peace with it.”
