Amazon has revealed the official first-look images and premiere date for the upcoming sci-fi adventure series ‘Paper Girls,’ which is set in the 80s. Based on the comics written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Cliff Chiang, the 8-episode series ‘Paper Girls’ will release on July 29 on Prime Video.
In the early morning hours after Halloween 1988, Erin, Mac, Tiffany, and KJ, four paper girls, are out on their delivery route when they become caught in the crossfire between warring time-travelers, forever changing the course of their lives. After being sent into the future, these girls must figure out how to return to the past, a journey that will bring them face to face with adult versions of themselves. While they come to terms with the truth that their futures are not what their 12-year-old selves expected, they are pursued by the Old Watch, a militant faction of time-travelers who have outlawed time travel to maintain power. To live, the girls must overcome their differences and learn to trust one another and themselves.
The coming-of-age sci-fi series Paper Girls is a high-stakes personal journey depicted through the eyes of four girls, played by Camryn Jones as Tiffany Quilkin, Sofia Rosinsky as Mac Coyle, Riley Lai Nelet as Erin Tieng, and Fina Strazza as KJ Brandman. Ali Wong also appears as Erin's grown-up counterpart, alongside Nate Corddry as Larry and Adina Porter as Prioress.
Below are the first-look images:
“As fans of the comic already know, this story seamlessly interweaves deeply personal character drama with the kind of high adventure and action that is truly rare on the small screen,” said Christopher C. Rogers, showrunner and Executive Producer. “That said, this show is for everyone (even those who’ve never picked up a comic book!) who has ever wondered what it would be like to meet themselves at a different stage of life — to compare what you know now with what you thought you knew then… It’s been a genuine thrill to get to play in Brian and Cliff’s world, and I’m humbled to have worked alongside this incredibly special group of artists and collaborators to bring it to life.”
“I love this show!” said Brian K. Vaughan. “The extraordinary cast feels ripped from the pages of our comic. And whether you’ve read every issue of Paper Girls or are just starting the ride here, there will be huge surprises in store for you this epic first season.”
Ali Wong added, “I am so excited for viewers to discover the incredible young leads of Paper Girls, my co-stars Riley Lai Nelet, Camryn Jones, Sofia Rosinsky, and Fina Strazza. Riley and I get to play ‘Erin’ in different decades, and our collaborations in crafting this character together could not have been more fun.”
The first season of Paper Girls completed filming in October last year in Chicago. Reportedly, the series has already been renewed for season 2.
Paper Girls is produced by Amazon Studios and Legendary Television, in association with Plan B. Executive producers are Christopher C. Rogers, Stephany Folsom, Brian K. Vaughan, Cliff Chiang, Christopher Cantwell, Steven Prinz, and Plan B. The series was created for television by Folsom. Season One is directed by Mairzee Almas, Destiny Ekaragha, Georgi Banks-Davies, and Karen Gaviola.
