'To All The Boys I've Loved Before' Is Receiving A Spinoff Show On Netflix! Get The Details On 'XO, Kitty'
The rumors were true!
Five months after it was reported that Netflix's hit movie To All The Boys I've Loved Before would be launching a spinoff show, the streaming service confirmed the exciting news.
Titled XO, Kitty, the dramedy series will see Anna Cathcart, 18, reprise her role as Kitty Covey, the younger sister of Lana Condor's Lara Jean.
"Teen matchmaker Kitty Song Covey thinks she knows everything there is to know about love," the official synopsis reads. "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."
The first season will consist of ten 30-minute episodes and will be written by the movie franchise's producer Jenny Han, who also wrote the YA books the trilogy is based on.
She celebrated the announcement by posting a photo alongside Cathcart, captioning the shot, "To my dearest @annacathcart —I’m so excited to go on this journey together. XO, Jenny."
The teen actress also marked the occasion via social media.
"Cat’s out of the bag, or should i say kitty @netflix grab your helmets kids this is gonna be a wild ride," she wrote, adding in her Instagram Story, "wow my heart has been exploding all day. overwhelmed with support and couldn't be more grateful. now let's do this @netflix."
Additionally, Netflix shared a pretend email sent from Kitty herself.
"I bet you thought the story was over... That there wouldn't be anymore letters... " the character wrote in her note. "But there's one Covey sister — some might call her the favorite — whose love story is just beginning. Stay tuned! XO, Kitty."
It's unclear if any other stars from the flicks will return, and a premiere date has yet to be revealed.
While Cathcart's character was the youngest sister, fans witnessed her personal evolution during the third movie, To All the Boys: Always and Forever, which debuted in February.
"I think it is cute that in this one you see her grow up a little bit and show her more sensitive side and the butterflies she has for a guy for the first time," the actress said. "Seeing her in different light was so much fun to play."
