and live on Freeview channel 276
XO, Kitty is a new Netflix original series and a spin-off of the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before film trilogy, which were released between 2018 and 2021. The films, and the series are based on Jenny Han’s young adult book series of the same name.
The new series follows Kitty, the young sister of To All the Boys main character Lara Jean, as she embarks on a whirlwind romance of her own. Kitty travels halfway across the world, leaving her Oregon home behind to reunite with her long-distance boyfriend in Seoul, South Korea.
With Kitty now working on her own relationship, rather than masterminding her big sister’s love life, she learns that it’s much harder when her own feelings are involved.
Xo, Kitty is aggressively Gen Z, with each episode titled with an abbreviation (WTF, TGIF, TBH, etc.) - it has also been categorized by Netflix as ‘swoonworthy’, whatever that means.
The series is Netflix’s first original show spin-off from one of the company’s own films and is likely to prove very popular - around 80 million people watched the first film when it landed on the platform, making it one of the site's most viewed originals.
