If there was ever a film or TV show that was close to John Hughes ever making an superheroes story, I Am Not Okay With This would be your answer. Later this month the upcoming Netflix coming of age teen drama with superpowers will be streaming.
Today we get a full trailer that finally shows off Sydney’s superpowers! Until now we didn’t know what they powers were, it seems they are a mixture of telekinesis, and electrical powers. As she is a teen, we get a taster of those hormones that are in override mode too. The big tease is why is Sydney covered in blood? Is it the police she is running from? Just like any growing up teenager, she’ll face things that every teenager will face. It’s called growing up!
I Am Not Okay With This is an irreverent origin story that follows a teenage girl who’s navigating the trials and tribulations of high school, all while dealing with the complexities of her family, her budding sexuality, and mysterious superpowers just beginning to awaken deep within her. From director/EP of The End of the F***ing World Jonathan Entwistle and the producers of Stranger Things comes a new series based on the Charles Forsman graphic novel.
The series cast includes Sophia Ellis (as Sydney) and Wyatt Oleff (as Stanley Barber) both known for their roles in IT:Chapter One.Joining them are Kathleen Rose Perkins as Maggie, Sofia Bryant (as Dina), Aidan Wojtak-Hissong (Liam) and Richard Ellis (Brad Lewis).
I Am Not Okay With This will consist of seven 30 minute episodes. Those episodes will launch on Netflix from on 26th February 2020.Powered by Sidelines
