For anyone waiting patiently for Stranger Things to return to Netflix, there’s a new show landing later this month that will be RIGHT up your street.
I Am Not Okay With This is a new series by the producers of Stranger Things and the director of The End Of The F***ing World, and will premiere Netflix on February 26.
It’s likely to emulate the success of Netflix’s current young adult offerings, such as Sex Education, Stranger Things and The End of the F***ing World and more – and is already gaining a lot of hype on social media following its exciting first preview.
The Netflix original series follows the story of Sydney, (played by Sophia Lillis) a high schooler who is growing up and going through a variety of things, including “complexities of her family, her budding sexuality, and mysterious superpowers just beginning to awaken deep within her,” according to Netflix.
In fact, it really does sound a little bit like a story about Eleven’s story arc in season three of Stranger Things. Jonathan Entwistle, who is the director of The End of the F***ing World, is listed as the co-creator of the series along with Christy Hall. The series is based on a Charles Forsman graphic novel, and has been adapted by the streaming service.
