Amazon has been hard at work expanding its comic adaptations. Next on their list is Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang‘s Paper Girls. Production seems to be well underway for Amazon’s Paper Girls adaptation. Someone living in the neighborhood where they are filming, which will act as Stony Stream (Hoffman Estates in Illinois), got a glimpse of the cast and crew. They are currently filming some sequences with the girls on their bikes, which may be familiar to comic readers. This seems like something we will see in the early episodes, as the girls are going through their usual paper routes before their adventure through time and space begins.

We can clearly see their newspaper delivery bags, and even KJ’s (played by Fina Strazza) field hockey stick strapped to her back. Mac Coyle, Erin Tieng, and Tiffany Quilkin will be played by Sofia Rosinsky, Riley Lai Nelet, and Camryn Jones respectively. Principal photography will continue through the 24th in Illinois, with the show perhaps eyeing a late 2021/early 2022 release date through Amazon’s streaming service, even if an official announcement hasn’t been made as of yet. The series is based on the Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang comic. It was published by Image Comics from 2015 to 2019 and went on to win the Eisner for Best New Series in 2016. Vaughan, Chiang, as well as colorist Matt Wilson, gained individual praise for their work on the series.
