If you love Stranger Things, we have another similar TV series coming up for you. It has been announced that Amazon Studios will release the first season of Paper Girls.
This upcoming mystery, drama, science-fiction, thriller TV series will be based on a comic book series with the same title written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Cliff Chiang. The comic book was published by Image Comics, an American company.
The comic book series was first published on October 7, 2015 until July 31, 2019. In total, they have published 30 numbers of series.
The comic book received high enthusiasm among its readers. And the good news for the fans is that Amazon Studios officially announced on their press release that the studio has given a full series order for the adaptation of the comic book.
What makes it more interesting is that the writer of the comic book himself, Brian K. Vaughan, will come aboard on the production process as the Executive Producer—thus, we don’t have to be worried that the TV series adaptation will not be as ‘original’ as the comic book.
Previously, it was reported that the developer and the executive producer of Paper Girls TV series Stephany Folsom has quit the team as the co-showrunner, so she will not have any active participation going forward in the series. Another co-showrunner Christopher C. Rogers therefore will be the only and solo showrunnner.
Christopher Cantwell will be the Executive Producer as well, alongside Kai Wu as the co-executive producer. Brett V. Shirley will serve as the Art department, while Rahul Chopra, Stacia Kimler, and Mindy Rengrudkij will be in the casting department.
This upcoming TV series will be produced by Amazon Studios, Legendary TV, and Plan B.
Paper Girls will follow the story of four young girls who are delivering newspapers. Until one day, on the morning after Halloween in the year of 1988, while they are as usual delivering newspapers, they are caught in a fight between time-travelers. They then accidentally get brought to a journey through time and eventually have to save the world.
Sadly, there is not much information that we can know about the upcoming TV show at the moment. However, we have gathered some information that we know so far, so keep reading!
