Netflix Superhero Series I Am Not Okay With This Gets New Trailer
It seems like they liked The End of the F***ing World very much at Netflix headquarters. So much that Netflix is investing in another series by Charles Forsman. And this time, the main protagonist will be a teenager who discovers she has superpowers overnight. The misadventures of Sophia Lillis’ Sydney have just begun, though. Puberty might just be the least of her problems.
According to the official synopsis, I Am Not Okay With This is an irreverent origin story that follows a teenage girl named Sydney, 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. Sydney is described as an awkward and smart girl with a dry, witty, sardonic sense of humor. Though Sydney views herself as painfully average, she is far from it, as she discovers she has telekinetic powers which may prove to be problematic.

Both Lillis and Oleff recently starred in It: Chapter 2 which premiered last year in September. The series will also feature Kathleen Rose Perkins (Episodes) as Maggie, Sofia Bryant (The Good Wife) as Dina, Aidan Wojtak-Hissong (Falling Water) as Liam, and Richard Ellis as Brad Lewis.
