“TATBILB”‘s Kitty Song-Covey is Back in the First “XO, Kitty” Trailer
Netflix’s “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” spinoff series “XO, Kitty” is coming to romance lovers everywhere this May. On March 22, the streamer officially announced the show’s release date and shared a first-look clip. It follows Kitty Song-Covey (Anna Cathcart), now a teenager and ready to make an amazing love story of her own, just like her older sister Lara Jean (Lana Condor) did in the three original films. In the new show, Kitty decides to go to boarding school in South Korea to reconnect with her long distance boyfriend Dae (Choi Min-yeong) and to learn more about her Korean heritage. But, as Netflix puts it, “She’ll soon realize that relationships are a lot more complicated when it’s your own heart on the line.”
“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” author Jenny Han is on board as creator, writer, and executive producer of the spinoff, and she serves as co-showrunner with Sascha Rothchild. “She’s stepping into the fore – picking up the baton from Lara Jean,” Rothchild told Tudum on March 22 about Kitty in the series.
Han added, “‘XO, Kitty’ really is Kitty’s story and that’s part of the reason why I really wanted to set this story in a different place. . . . It felt like the greatest gift to give to Kitty was to let her as a character kind of set off on her own two feet and not put her in the shadow of either of her sisters.”
“XO, Kitty” is the second TV series based on Han’s stories. She also created Amazon Prime Video’s “The Summer I Turned Pretty,” which debuted in 2022 and is based on her book series of the same name. It seems that “The Summer I Turned PRetty” will release its second season later this year.
