Netflix looks to be adding to its cast for the forthcoming XO Kitty series.
A spinoff of the popular To All the Boys… films, XO Kitty focuses on the youngest Covey sister, played by Anna Cathcart. The series follows teen matchmaker Kitty Song Covey who thinks she knows everything there is to know about love. When she moves halfway across the world (Korea) to reunite with her long-distance boyfriend, however, she’ll soon realize that relationships are a lot more complicated when it’s your own heart on the line.
As we’ve previously revealed, XO Kitty will enter production in March 2022. While the series was previously looking to fill the role of six main characters, it looks like episode two of the show will introduce two recurring guest star roles: Madison and Florian.
Madison is described as being a 17-year-old white American female who is as American as Apple pie. Her family, naturally, made a fortune by creating apple pie in a cup and she’s spent her summers working at the family bakery in the past. However, having grown tired of cheerleading and boys with their pick-up trucks, Madison is seeking a change with Korea. Believing Korea to be a great place to expand their apple pie in a cup business, her parents agree to send her to a boarding school in Korea with the hopes of learning the culture and language. Unfortunately, though, Madison often tries way too hard to fit in at her new school and it becomes clear she’s a teen simply trying to find herself. The role is that of a recurring guest star; actors applying need to be at least 18-years-old.
Florian is a 17-year-old male who describes himself as queer; he also identifies as femme or androgynous. Florian is an art and history buff who has a knack for seeming pretentious, but truly just loves pop culture. He has a crush on a typical jock at the boarding school, and soon finds himself in a “will they or won’t they” with the athlete Q. The role is that of a recurring guest star; actors applying need to be at least 18-years-old. The hope is to also cast someone who identifies as queer.
XO Kitty is a spinoff of the popular Netflix To All the Boys… adaptations based on the books by bestselling author Jenny Han. XO Kitty appears to be an original series that came about because of the movies and their popularity. Han is the TV series creator and co-wrote the pilot script with fellow author, Siobhan Vivian. As it stands XO Kitty does not yet have a release date.
