Anna Cathcart to Star in “To All the Boys” Spinoff Series
Our favorite little sister gets her chance to shine.
When the beloved YA book trilogy by Jenny Han got its three-part Netflix treatment, fans were captivated. The Netflix movie trilogy began with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before in 2018, followed by To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You in 2020. The final installment, To All the Boys: Always and Forever was released on February 12, 2021, and we thought we had to leave the world of protagonist Lara Jean (Lana Condor) and her relationship with Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) behind. But for many viewers, the character of Katherine “Kitty” Song Covey, Lara Jean’s younger sister, stood out. Played by Anna Cathcart, Kitty’s plucky personality made her everyone’s favorite little sister. Now, plans are in the works at Netflix to give Cathcart (and Kitty) a leading role.
Lara Jean’s romantic troubles structured the original Netflix trilogy, but Kitty’s one-liners added tremendous heart and comic relief. In the new TV show, which is rumored to be about Kitty’s own search for true love, we can expect to learn more about her character. Awesomeness (the studio admired for its work on the Hulu series Pen15) and ACE Entertainment are behind the proposed half-hour romantic comedy series. Jenny Han, author of the story, is on board as the creator, writer, and executive producer. Han and Siobhan Vivian are co-writing the pilot script – the project is still in its early stages, but this venture might be indicative of a new approach for Netflix. The streaming platform has reportedly been considering the creation of TV series to accompany some of its original movies. This strategy of building worlds around favorite characters has huge potential; when fans are drawn to a story, they aren’t in any hurry to say goodbye.
While you wait for further updates on the potential TV spinoff, stream the original To All the Boys trilogy on Netflix.
