Ghosting will soon take on an entirely new meaning. After negotiating complicated love triangles into All The Boys and journeying to the stars in Moonshot, the queen of romantic comedies Lana Condor will play a ghost in her next leading role. If you can’t wait for an entertaining blend of imaginative ghost stories and laugh-out-loud comedy, here’s all you need to know about Netflix’s Boo, Bitch, including its launch date and the cast.
Although Boo, Bitch is a ghost story, you will only shout with laughter throughout the entire film. Lana Condor plays Erika, a senior in high school who spent her entire time in school playing it safe and staying to herself. Erika chooses to put herself out there and make up for a lost time as the end of high school approaches, only to discover that she is now a ghost.
But Erika is not a ghost in the conventional sense of a translucent, floating spirit. She cannot pass through solid objects, and others can still see and interact with her. The series’ central enigma is Erika’s ghostly new body, and it sounds like it’ll be a lot of fun to watch her test the limits of her second chance at life… or death.
Boo, Bitch’s Cast
Zoe Margaret Colletti will portray Erika’s best friend Gia alongside Condor’s Erika on her bizarre new voyage. Mason Versaw will portray Jake C, who appears to be Erika’s romantic interest.
Jami Alix as Lea, Aparna Brielle as Riley, Conor Husting as Jake W, Abigail Achiri as Raven, Tenzing Norgay Trainor as Gavin, Savira Windyani as Sail, and Reid Miller as Brad round out the high school group.
Boo, Bitch Plot
“The sitcom is created by Lauren Iungerich (On My Block, Awkward) and Erin Ehrlich (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, King of the Hill). It follows a high school senior who has spent the majority of her life living under the radar. When she learns that, in a single night, she may change her story and begin living an “epic life,” she seizes the opportunity… only to wake up the next morning to realize that she’s a ‘mother* % king ghost.'”
Boo, Bitch’s Premiere Date
On July 8, Netflix will release the new series.
