What are the best reasons to watch I Am Not Okay With This on Netflix?

If you're a fan of Stranger Thing and The End of the F***king World, then get ready to queue the next series for all your binge-watching needs. The I Am Not Okay With This Netflix series comes from the creators of both the titles mentioned before. Based on the graphic novel by Charles Forman, it follows the story of Sydney. She's a typical teenager that's merely trying to make her way through the trials and tribulations that high school has to offer. Along with this, she's dealing with the loss of a close family member as well as her developing sexuality. Oh, if that wasn't hard enough on her, she also has superpowers that she can't seem to control. The I Am Not Okay With This Netflix cast might seem a little familiar to some fans. If you've watched the movie franchise "It" then you'd be surprised that some of its cast members reunite in this series. Sophia Lillis, who played Beverly Marsh in "It," will portray Sydney. Meanwhile, her co-star Wyatt Oleff (who oddly enough played Stanley in "It") also plays a character named Stanley in this series. The first teaser of the show hits a home run in telling us all we need to know about the tone of the series. Not to mention the kind of relationship that Sydney and Stanley have. I Am Not Okay With This Netflix release date is set to arrive on February 26, 2020. Need more reasons to excited about the series? Check out this list that we made and become a believer!

    The show is a reunion of the "It" cast

    The last time that we saw Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff together was in the movie franchise "It" and "It: Chapter Two." Now, the two of them will reunite in the Netflix series "I Am Not Okay With This." Lillis plays the role of Sydney, a 15-year-old with a cool and disaffected personality on the outside but has a richer disposition on the inside. Meanwhile, Oleff plays Stanley who's one of Sydney's best friends and neighbors. It's interesting to see how these their chemistry plays out as the leads of the show.

    It's from the people that brought you "Stranger Things" and "The End of the F***king World"

    If you're a fan of both "Stranger Things" and "The End of the F***king World" then that's all the more reason for you to watch I Am Not Okay With This. You're probably asking, how come? It's because the show was directed by Jonathan Entwistle and co-created by Christy Hall, both of which worked in "The End of the F***king World." On top of that, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen, and Josh Barry are all executive producers who were part of the team behind "Stranger Things."

    It's based on the popular graphic novel by Charles Forsman

    Charles Forsman already has two critically-acclaimed graphic novels, Celebrated Summer and The End of the F***king World. The latter was even adapted as a Netflix series. Looks like Forsman is about to have a third with another one of his pieces entitled "I Am Not Okay With This." In this series, he does an excellent job of channeling the teenage ethos in a style that gives rise to classic comic strips while telling an intense and deeply-rooted story.

    It's a coming-of-age series involving superpowers

    The series as a whole is a coming-of-age story with a dash of a superhero origin story. Sydney (the main protagonist) seems like a normal 15-year-old. She hangs out with friends, listens to music, and get into arguments with her sibling. But underneath all that, she deals with secrets like having a crush on her best friend, the death of her father, and her unexplainable telekinetic powers that appear at the most inopportune moments.

    Judging by the trailer, it's gonna be funny

    The trailer is just pretty much a teaser, a minute-long vid of an encounter between the two leads. Nevertheless, that short clip is more than entertaining and foreshadows the entirety of the series. Sydney (Sophia Lillis) walks along a road all by herself when a car pulls up beside her driven by Stanley (Wyatt Oleff). Let's just say that Stanley's attempts are far from smooth. Still, the trailer tells a lot about the tone of the show and the kind of relationship that Sydney and Stanley have.
