She’s saying goodbye to Lara Jean Covey and hello to a new role! Lana Condor is set to star in the upcoming Netflix series Boo, Bitch.
“I’m so excited to finally be able to share with you this fantastic project we’ve been working on for about a year now!” the To All the Boys star wrote on Instagram when announcing the project in February 2021. “BOO, BITCH is coming in hot and y’all are in for one wild ride!!! Thank you to our incredible team that has pushed our baby through!!! Let’s gooooo.”
As fans know, this isn’t the actress’ first time working with the streaming service. For three years, she took over Netflix with the fan-favorite trilogy To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Nor does this upcoming series mark Lana’s first TV role. She starred in the sci-fi series Deadly Class in 2018. So, Boo, Bitch will just continue to skyrocket the actress into having a successful career in Hollywood!
“That was a totally different experience than what I’ve been used to, but I learned a lot, and I feel like I will never be the same,” the actress told POPSUGAR in November 2021 of the series. “I love that world with all my heart, but when we were picking, when my team and I were mapping out projects for the future, we were like, ‘Let’s just have every single one of them be wildly different and challenging for you because you’ve been doing the same thing.'”
While chatting with Travel+Leisure in May 2021, the actress explained the importance of representation in Hollywood and how she plans to use her status as a way to give people opportunities and create diverse projects.
“We have actively been making sure that we’re hiring and creating a really diverse writers room,” she told the publication. “I feel like it starts with … making sure that people feel safe, just people feel safe to express themselves and to use their voices. And I think that’s something I’m seeing more of. But again, we have a long way to go.”
She continued, “I wanted people to feel seen and not alone. I want people to feel represented. So to me, it’s a joy and an honor to be able to be a part of projects that make people feel less alone and make people feel seen, make people not feel weird or different in a bad way, but [just] people, you know.”
