‘Stranger Things’ and ‘The End Of The F*cking World’ are two of the most loved and popular shows on Netflix (OK TEOFW isn’t as big as Stranger Things but everyone who watched it really, seriously loved it) so it makes sense that a collaboration between the two teams responsible would probably produce some excellent results.

We can but hope, but the initial signs are looking promising. The producers of ‘Stranger Things’ are teaming up with the co-creator of ‘The End Of The F*cking World’ Jonathan Entwistle to make a TV show called ‘I Am Not Okay With This’ which is based upon the graphic novel of the same name by Charles Forsham. Here’s the plot summary:
I Am Not Okay With This follows a regular suburban 15-year-old freshman called Sydney with telekinetic powers that kick in at inopportune moments. She is also secretly in love with her best friend, Dina.
Like the novel, it will follow a teenage girl navigating the trials and tribulations of high school, dealing with the complexities of her family, her budding sexuality, and her mysterious emerging superpowers.
Wow, that literally sounds like an exact cross between ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘The End Of The F*cking World’ doesn’t it? The series is gonna run for eight episodes and Entwistle will direct them all. Probably won’t be out until the end of next year, so there’s no point getting too excited about it, but when you see the trailer for it next autumn you can think about this article and how long it’s taken for anything to happen. Awesome.
