Netflix is doubling down on the expansion of its existing IPs and the next one to get a bigger world is To All the Boys franchise with its brand-new spinoff called XO, Kitty, following the character of the same name from the original movies. Production is due to start in 2022. 

The 30-minute dramedy will have Jenny Han and Sascha Rothchild as its showrunners. Han, whose books the To All the Boys movies are based on, has also co-written the pilot episode with fellow novelist Siobhan Vivian.

As we mentioned, the series is a spin-off to Netflix’s To All The Boys franchise which has seen three movies released since 2018. All three movies were critical darlings for Netflix with the third movie reportedly pulling in 51 million views for Netflix.

The series will be produced by Awesomeness and ACE Entertainment for Netflix.

Here’s everything else we know about XO, Kitty:


What’s the plot of XO, Kitty?

In XO, Kitty, teen matchmaker Kitty Song Covey thinks she knows everything there is to know about love. 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.


Who is cast in XO, Kitty?

As the title would suggest, Anna Cathcart will reprise her role as Kitty Song Cover from the To All the Boys films. Cathcart’s scene-stealer Kitty character played a key role in the plot of the movies. In the first film, she found the letters her older sister Lara (Lana Condor), a shy high school junior, had written to boys she had had crushes on and secretly mailed them, triggering all the follow-up events.

We can reveal that there will be plenty of brand new faces in this new spin-off.
