With the launch of Archie, Jughead, and the upcoming Betty and Veronica series from Archie Comics, it was only a matter of time before Josie and the Pussycats stepped into the New Riverdale spotlight.

Josie and the Pussycats will explore the friendship between Josie, Valerie, and Melody, and the rivalry with Alexandra Cabot. Archie Comics has tapped Marguerite Bennett, Cameron DeOrdio, and artist Audrey Mok to bring the series to life.

“I am incredibly grateful and outrageously stoked to be working on JOSIE,” says co-writer Marguerite Bennett. “JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS is zany, high-energy, hilarious, and utterly sincere. The book can’t launch soon enough.”

Friends, countrymen, lend me your long tails and ears for hats—the Pussycats are back! In this series kick-off, Josie’s getting the band together to help achieve her dreams of musical stardom. But for the group to last, it needs a strong foundation of friendship and trust. Can the girls get going, or will Alexandra’s plotting put a stop to the whole thing?
