I didn’t want to post anything here until the official news or announcement, but it’s taking them too long. However, Zane has confirmed his role in the Riverdale spin-off, Katy Keene, played by Lucy Hale. He will be playing K.O. Kelly, Katy’s boyfriend. Good luck to Zane!

Update: Official news from Deadline, along with character details!

Holtz will star as Ko Kelly, a boxer with two goals in life: to fight a welterweight championship in Madison Square Garden and to marry his longtime girlfriend, Katy Keene. Born and raised in Queens, Ko is a humble, protective, salt-of-the-earth guy who makes ends meet as a personal trainer and a bouncer.

Set in a timeless New York City, as enchanting as Riverdale is moody, Katy Keene follows the titular character as she meets Josie McCoy, fresh off the bus to chase her musical dreams. Their world is populated with kindred-spirit starving artists, including mysterious socialite Pepper Smith and Broadway-bound performer Jorge Lopez (and his drag queen alter ego, Ginger). While their climb to the top is rife with obstacles, this found family will stop at nothing to see their names in lights.

After some unconfirmed news on whether the pilot would be moving forward, it’s officially confirmed that the CW will not proceed with Searchers. Really unfortunate news as the pilot sounded really great, but I’m hoping the pilot they shot would be released.

After several days of deliberations, the CW has opted not to proceed with pilots Insatiable and Searchers. Insatiable is being shopped elsewhere, and I hear there is interest.

Insatiable had strong internal support, though it was different than anything else on the CW. Meanwhile, Searchers had a bumpy ride and required re-shoots, but the final cut came in OK, and the project had great pedigree coming from The 100 creator Jason Rothenberg and the network’s top producer Greg Berlanti.

Great, exciting news, guys! Zane is set as the male lead in the CW drama pilot, Searchers. You can check out the synopsis below. It sounds promising, and hope it gets picked up to series!

Written by Jason Rothenberg, Searchers is about a group of unlikely heroes who find themselves on the journey of a lifetime. Ten years after the death of their parents, Cooper (Holtz) and his free-spirited sister Fable are forced to team up when they learn that their mother’s terrifying and bizarre stories might be a road map to discovering the great legends, myths and unexplainable mysteries of the world. Holtz’s Cooper is a brilliant tech innovator and former soldier who has accepted his parents’ deaths. But all that changes when Fable drags him on a dangerous mission to learn what truly happened to them 10 years ago.

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series showrunner, Carlos Coto, discusses Queen Amaru and how our heroes have come full circle.

Such an amazing way to end such an amazing season! Hoping this isn’t the end for the series. I have added 315 high-resolution screencaps into the gallery.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed we still get a fourth season!

El Rey Network has released the cast of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series ahead of tomorrow’s (Nov. 5) Season 3 finale. I hear the options on the actors were up before the network was ready to make a decision on the future of the series, a reimagining of Robert Rodriguez’s 1996 movie for Miramax. With Rodriguez, the driving creative force behind the series, busy directing feature Alita: Battle Angel for Fox, I hear El Rey, which Rodriguez launched with Univision in 2013, may not make a final call on the show’s future until early 2017.

I hear that El Rey is still in discussions with the series’ lead producer Miramax about a potential new From Dusk Till Dawn installment. I hear it could take a different form, like a limited series or miniseries, which would explain the decision to let the actors’ options lapse. (I hear the idea is, if a new installment of the series goes forward, to do it with the same actors.)
