I Am Not Okay With This is going to be your new Netflix obsession, and we are more than OK with that.
The new coming-of-age (with a hint of supernatural) series is bringing the best of both worlds to Netflix next month, with all the raucous whip-smart teen energy of the former, plus all the mystery other-worldliness of the latter.
What is I Am Not Okay With This about?
Based on the novel by Charles Forsman, the new television adaptation follows teenager Sydney (Sophia Lillis) as she navigates the usual high school awkwardness, family drama and unrequited crush of her best friend, while also trying to come to terms with her own budding superpowers.
Who is the cast of I Am Not Okay With This?
The series is being helmed by The End of the F***ing World director Jonathan Entwistle and the producers of Stranger Things.
Alongside Lillis (who starred in horror film It as Beverly Marsh), the series will also star Wyatt Oleff (It, Guardians of the Galaxy), Sofia Bryant (The Good Wife, Blue Bloods, Suspicion), Kathleen Rose Perkins (Gone Girl, Person of Interest), Aidan Wojyak-Hissong (Lets Go Luna!, Playdate), and Richard Ellis (Veronica Mars), Zachary Williams (I Am Frankie).
Is there a trailer for I Am Not Okay With This?
Yes! In the official trailer, we meet Lillis’s Sydney, a self-declared “boring 17-year-old white girl”, who is trying to navigate the usual trials of puberty (boys, periods, school) while also coming to terms with her own unexplainable superpowers – understandably, it’s a lot.
When and how can I watch I Am Not Okay With This?
The seven-episode first season premieres on Netflix on 26 February.
