Move over, Lara Jean! XO Kitty is putting your little sister in the spotlight.
Netflix revealed that the youngest Covey daughter will be the focus of its To All The Boys spinoff, but that was all the way back in 2021. Since the announcement, fans of Jenny Haan's romantic YA fiction got distracted by the wildly popular TV adaptation of The Summer I Turned Pretty. (And understandably so—it was addicting.)
We're certainly anxious to reunite with Belly and the boys in Cousins Beach for The Summer I Turned Pretty season 2, but it's time for little Kitty Song and her matchmaking expertise to tell her story. A teaser and release date just dropped, and we're getting all warm and fuzzy inside!
Check out the 'XO, Kitty' announcement
If you thought the story was over, you're mistaken, my friend.
Netflix took to social media to make the big reveal about the To All The Boys spinoff series, indicating that Kitty Song Covey (played by Anna Cathcart) will have a romantic journey ahead. The 18-year-old actress confirmed the news with a retweet and said, "cat’s out of the bag (or should i say kitty)."

Watch the super-cute 'XO, Kitty' trailer
After radio silence, Netflix blessed all rom-com fans on March 22 with a taste of what's to come this spring.
Young Kitty—who has a sixth sense about romantic connections—feels one with a boy named Dae. The problem? He's across the world in Korea, but it just so happens Kitty gets a scholarship to his boarding school, the Korea Independent School of Seoul (KISS).
If THAT isn't fate and the school's acronym isn't convincing enough, we're not sure what more you need, honestly.
What will 'XO, Kitty' be about?
The ten-episode series takes young Kitty across the world to reunite with her long-distance boyfriend. However, things aren't so peachy upon her arrival, and it turns out romance is a bit more complicated than the teen matchmaker had originally thought. But since Kitty lands the same scholarship her late mother did, perhaps she'll also be able to explore her roots and her love life.
According to a Netflix press release, Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian co-wrote the pilot, and Jenny Han, Sascha Rothchild and Matt Kaplan of ACE Entertainment are slated to executive-produce the series.
Who's in the 'XO, Kitty' cast?
