Awkward youths navigating teen angst and grief: check. Secret superpowers: check.

If you’ve had enough of big screen superheroes lately, maybe you’d like an origin story for one that feels more like a John Hughes high school movie with all the teenage trials and tribulations you can handle.

IT franchise star Sophia Lillis leads the series as Sydney, an introverted, disaffected teenage girl who not only has to deal with all the nonsense of high school, but suddenly starts developing superpowers. You know, that old chestnut. See how that goes for Sydney in the new I Am Not Okay With This trailer released by Netflix below. Read More »

Years ago, Netflix admitted that they use analytics to determine which shows to greenlight, and it seems as if their algorithms were working overtime to find the best fit between producers and subject matter for their newest announcement. The producers of Stranger Things are returning to the streaming service with a show called I Am Not Okay With This, an adaptation of a comic book about a teen girl with telekinetic powers. (Does that description sound familiar?)
Oh, and the creator of Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World is on board, too. Looks like the algorithm may have found another good match here. Learn more about the new series below.
