To All The Boys I've Loved Before spin-off, XO, Kitty, has a release date!
Get us back in the world of Lara and Peter.
We're all dedicated fans of Netflix's teen comedy-drama To All The Boys I've Loved Before, so we were always going to be excited to hear about a spin-off. Especially one that focuses on Kitty Song Covey, the younger sibling of the original show's central character Lara Jean (Lana Condor). Let's be honest, she's a bit of an icon already. Here's everything we know about Netflix's TATBILB spin-off, XO, Kitty.
What is XO, Kitty's confirmed release date?
BIG news guys! Almost 18 months after the spin-off series was announced, we finally have a release date. XO, Kitty will land on the streaming platform in full on 18th May, reintroducing us to a now 16-year-old Kitty.
What is XO, Kitty about?
It's set four years after the last To All The Boys film. The official Netflix description reveals, "Ready to make her own mark in the world, Kitty leaves her Portland, Oregon, home behind to attend the same school her mum went to, the Korean Independent School of Seoul, or KISS. Kitty’s long-term, long-distance boyfriend, Dae (Minyeong Choi), also just so happens to go to KISS. In Seoul, love guru Kitty realises relationships are a lot more complicated when it’s your own heart on the line."
Co-showrunner Jenny Han, who also wrote To All The Boys I Love Before, added to Netflix's own website Tudum, "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. If you see the Covey house that we all know and love and their high school in Portland, you’d probably just be thinking, ‘Oh, what’s Lara Jean up to?'"
When was XO, Kitty announced?
Netflix announced it had ordered the 10-part series as of Monday 18th November 2021, with a little preview clip on Twitter. According to the streamer, the series will follow Kitty, the younger sister of the original show's Lara Jean (played by Lana Condor), as she moves halfway across the world to reunite with her long-distance boyfriend.
Who has been cast in XO, Kitty?
From day one, we knew that TATB star Anna Cathcart would reprise her role as Kitty Song Covey for the ten-episode series. Joining her, the cast is made up of Choi Min-young as Dae, Anthony Keyvan as Q, Gia Kim as Yuri, Sang Heon Lee as Min Ho, Peter Thurnwald as Alex and Regan Aliya as Juliana.
We're super excited about this.
