This week Netflix confirmed that the company has greenlit “Trinkets,” a new series based on the young adult novel by Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith. Netflix stopped short of giving us a premiere date but author Kirsten Smith will serve as an executive producer on the show.

The story picks up when three teenage girls from different corners of the high school cafeteria find themselves in the same mandated Shoplifter’s Anonymous meeting, and an unlikely friendship forms.

The three friends are Elodie — the grieving misfit, Moe — the mysterious outsider, and Tabitha — the imperfect picture of perfection. Each of the girls will find strength in each other as they negotiate family issues, high school drama and the complicated dilemma of trying to fit in while longing to break out.

Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool, Tragedy Girls) stars as Elodie; Kiana Madeira (The Flash, Sacred Lies) stars as Moe; Quintessa Swindell stars as Tabitha; Odiseas Georgiadis (The Stand-In, Dr. Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets) stars as Noah; Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why) stars as Luca; Brandon Butler (13 Reasons Why) stars as Brady; Larry Sullivan (Big Little Lies, Scandal) stars as Doug; October Moore (Baskets, Grimm, Portlandia) stars as Vicky; and Larisa Oleynik (Mad Men, Hawaii Five-O) stars as Shawn.

Netflix has already ordered 10 episodes of the series, each are 30 minutes long. The series comes from Awesomeness, with Amy Andelson, Emily Meyer, and Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith serving as writes and Executive Producers.

The showrunner and Executive Producer on the series will be Linda Gase, with Shelley Zimmerman, Brin Lukens, and Rebecca Glashow also serving as Executive Producers.

The first two episodes of the series will be directed by Sara St. Onge.

Earlier this week Netflix also set the cast for “October Faction”. Netflix ordered 10 episodes of the sci-fi series already, which is based on the successful IDW comic book written by Steve Niles.

The story follows the monster hunting Allen family.

In the new series Tamara Taylor (Bones, Altered Carbon, Lost, Justice League: Gods and Monsters) will play Deloris Allen; J.C. Mackenzie (Molly’s Game, Vinyl, The Irishman) will play Fred Allen; Aurora Burghart (Sex Education) will play Viv Allen; and Gabriel Darku (Impulse, ReBoot: The Guardian Code, American Gods) will play Geoff Allen.
