Netflix found one of their most successful in-house productions with their To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before film franchise, so it’s no surprise to learn that they’re expanding the series. A spinoff series titled XO, Kitty has been greenlit by the streaming platform, which will revolve around Lara Jean’s younger sister Kitty.
The series will be a 10 episode, 30 minute, YA dramedy with Anna Cathcart reprising her role from the films. Jenny Han, who wrote the books the franchise is based on, will serve as showrunner for the series alongside Sascha Rothchild. Han has also co-written the pilot with Siobhan Vivian.
The show’s official logline reads: “Teen matchmaker Kitty Song Covey thinks she knows everything there is to know about love. But when she moves halfway across the world to reunite with her long-distance boyfriend, she’ll soon realize that relationships are a lot more complicated when it’s your own heart on the line.”
After To All The Boys: Always And Forever wrapped up the trilogy of films back in March, it was heavily rumoured that the franchise wasn’t finished. This spinoff series will now allow fans to follow a new romantic journey, and the franchise might actually be better suited to the more condensed chunks of episodic television.
No release date for the show has been confirmed, but Netflix will want it ready to go as soon as possible due to the popularity of the franchise.
