'I Am Not Okay With This'

Speaking to PopCulture.com, series star Sophia Lillis dubbed the show a "coming-of-age film."
"Bottom line, it's a coming-of-age film," Lillis said. "So as a person, also a kid, growing up, still in school, I could just take it from my own life. I got to see my classmates, myself [in the characters]. I'm living it, so I could really take from there and my experiences and put them in this role."
Along with Lillis, the series also stars her It co-star Wyatt Oleff, with Lillis saying that their reunion and filming the series together has "been fun. I love him so much."
From the same people behind Stranger Things and The End of the F—king World, the series also stars Sofia Bryant, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Aidan Wojtak-Hissong, and Richard Ellis.
