“XO, Kitty”, the story of Kitty Song Covey’s adventures in love and life, far from the comfort of her American home and amidst the vibrant cityscapes of Seoul, will continue to unfold as Netflix has greenlighted a second season for the show.
The show, which puts teenage matchmaker Kitty Song Covey’s own heart on the line, has been an endearing watch, as she navigates the complexities of her own love life, having moved halfway across the globe to be with her long-distance boyfriend. The first season of this “To All The Boys” spinoff has been well-received by audiences, debuting at the second spot on the English TV List and garnering a staggering 72.1 million hours of viewership within the first few days of its launch. It held onto its top 10 position for four consecutive weeks, showcasing its popularity and charm.
Anna Cathcart, who reprises her role as Kitty Song Covey, leads an ensemble cast featuring Minyeong Choi, Gia Kim, Sang Heon Lee, Anthony Keyvan, Peter Thurnwald, Yunjin Kim, Sarayu Blue, John Corbett, Michael K Lee, Jocelyn Shelfo, and Regan Aliyah. This half-hour dramedy, presented by Awesomeness and ACE Entertainment, traces its lineage back to the popular movie trilogy and the bestselling book series by Jenny Han, who also co-wrote the pilot script with Siobhan Vivian and will serve as a co-showrunner alongside Sascha Rothchild. The duo, in collaboration with Matt Kaplan of ACE Entertainment, are the executive producers of the series.
Cathcart’s character, Kitty, had already won hearts in the parent film series, “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before”, where she was the catalyst for her older sister Lara Jean’s romantic escapades. Kitty had discovered and covertly mailed the secret letters that Lara Jean had penned for her crushes, setting off a series of events that unfolded over three movies. The film franchise, a product of the collaboration between Awesomeness and ACE, was a massive hit on Netflix, which eventually led to the conception of the spinoff series, “XO, Kitty”.
As we look forward to the second season of “XO, Kitty”, it’s heartening to see the stories of beloved characters being further explored, their journeys continuing to captivate audiences, and their narratives adding layers of depth to the universes they inhabit.
