Netflix has released the official trailer for their forthcoming series adaptation of I Am Not Okay With This, featuring Sophia Lillis as she deals with the complications of growing up while also trying to figure out how to control her newfound power. Based on Charles Forsman’s super coming-of-age graphic novel of the same name, the series will be making its debut on Wednesday, February 26.
I Am Not Okay With This is an irreverent origin story that follows a teenage girl named Sydney, who’s navigating the trials and tribulations of high school, all while dealing with the complexities of her family, her budding sexuality, and mysterious superpowers just beginning to awaken deep within her. Sydney is described as an awkward and smart girl with a dry, witty, sardonic sense of humor. Though Sydney views herself as painfully average, she is far from it, as she discovers she has telekinetic powers which may prove to be problematic.
