What can we expect?
In October 2019 the creators shared that the number of episodes for the new series will be 10. Many snapshots of the series also got released to give us a peek. There are friends who seem happy in their clique. Then there are two boys who play important roles in the series. Most of the actors are people of color. So the creators have deliberately given importance to cast people of color which is a great thing. There was also a controversy during the productions.
Writer Ming Peiffer shared that she backed out of the project because of racist allegations made by one of the creators of the project. She shared that they went “full Karen” the term used to denote people who discriminate against people of color.
But we can be sure that the series will be different than normal teen dramas. One of the stage actors will reprise the role she played in the stage production of the play. Her name is Amalia Yoo who acted as Leila Kwan Zimmer in the play. The other cast members of the play also look great. We can expect them to play their parts well.
