Amazon Studios went official with Brian K. Vaughan’s Eisner-winning comic series that fans swear by, Paper Girls will just blow your mind. The genius illustrator of the comics, Cliff Chiang completed this Image Comic series in 2019, and undoubtedly, it had one of the cleverest endings that were heartfelt at the same time.
Of course, this genius creation needed a screen adaptation and a few of the industry’s biggest banners were hustling to get it. So, in 2021, Legendary Television along with Plan B, Brad Pitt’s production company got the exclusive rights to recreating this comic on TV.
In fact, Amazon brass didn’t hold itself back and released a press release about creating a series for the comic book. Moreover, to give credit to the original creator, Vaughan has joined the series as an executive producer. It’s just a few months since Amazon Studios has made it official. So, let’s try to find everything we know about this series.

Paper Girls Plot
You will not feel shocked if you find certain similarities between Paper Girls and Netflix’s popular Stranger Things. This dark, sci-fi story is going to take place in the 80s. Oddly, the series has more than similarities with Stranger Things.
The print debut of Paper Girls was in 2015, the same year the iconic show became superhit. The setting is also pretty similar; however, Paper Girls is more on the darker side. Paper Girls is more like Stranger Things but with only girls.
Vaughan wanted this to be much like the 80’s trappings and said, “I remember a lot of aspects of that era fondly, but it also felt like, wow, there’s a lot of fiction now about the 1980s that completely whitewashes a lot of the worst aspects of it.”
The story is not about the negative side of the 80s but about unnatural beauty, humanity, originality, and much more. It begins just before Halloween 1988 and the girls end up being a part of a time-hopping adventure. Every minute of the story surprises the fans and we are thrilled to explore more.
Paper Girls Cast
Not a lot of details are available about the cast since the series is still in the early production stage. But in order to bring out the true essence of the series, talented artists are needed. KJ, Erin, Tiffany, and Mac are the lead characters of the story but the cast is not decided yet.
The story is mainly going to be about the four central leads. And we guess, the creators will cast new talents for these roles. As of today, any information regarding the cast has not been disclosed. But fans look forward to digging up more information in the near future.
Paper Girls is going to be the new Stranger Things but in a much better way if executed perfectly. Fans are eager to know more about the series due to its unique plotline. So, we promise to bring you all the latest information once there is any update regarding this. Who else cannot wait to watch more of this show?
