There is a long list of reasons why we simply cannot wait for the highly-anticipated teen comedy Alexa & Katie to finally premiere on Netflix. If the Netflix original series 13 Reasons Why is any indication of how binge-worthy this new show is going to be, we better get our popcorn ready – and prepare to not leave the house for an entire weekend while we watch it straight through, if we're being honest here.
So what's the show all about? What's the deal with the cast? We're here to tell you everything you need to know about the new series that we're all about to become totally and completely obsessed with.
Who is starring in Alexa & Katie?
Paris Berelc of Disney XD's Lab Rates: Elite Force and Might Med will be portraying Alexa, while newcomer Isabel May will be starring alongside as her bestie Katie.
Tiffani Thiessen of everyone's fave '90s teen sitcom Saved by the Bell, will be playing the super strict mother of Paris Berelc's character Alexa.
Playing Paris' on-screen father will be Westworld's Eddie Shin. His character Dave is an airline pilot for a living, and is super supportive of his family. The resemblance between the family members is totally there, if you ask us.
Jolie Jenkins from the show Body Of Proof plays Jennifer, the single mother of Katie who does everything in her power to keep the family afloat and better their lives.
Forever In Your Mind's Emery Kelly is in on it too. The brunette cutie, who has starred in a number of Disney shows in his day, plays a super adorbs junior at school.
As a matter of fact, this won't be the first time Emery and Paris will be working on the same show. Emery actually appeared on two episodes of Lab Rats. Now Paris didn't join the cast until the show became Lab Rats: Elite Force, but it totally counts if you ask us.
Paris' IRL boyfriend Jack Griffo from the fan-fave Nickelodeon series The Thundermans is also starring in the show. Jack will portray a character named Dylan, who is friends with Emery's character Lucas.
When does Alexa & Katie premiere?
Season One of the show, which consists of 13 episodes, premieres in 2018. There hasn't been an official release date quite yet.
What is Alexa & Katie about?
The multi-camera comedy is about two lifelong friends, Alexa and Katie, who are excitedly preparing for their freshman year of high school. However, the besties get faced with a crisis that has them feeling like total outsiders.
Now excuse us while we sit and wait for the show to finally premiere – we can't wait!
