Netflix confirmed that “Trinkets” is scheduled to premiere on June 14th. The series is based on the young adult novel by Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith, and fans of the original publication can get a quick preview of the new series thanks to the video below. The streaming service ordered ten, thirty-minute episodes of the YA series, which stars Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool), Kiana Madeira, Quintessa Swindell, Odiseas Georgiadis, Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why), Brandon Butler (13 Reasons Why), Larry Sullivan (Big Little Lies), October Moore, and Larisa Oleynik (Mad Men).
If you prefer to read the original work before watching the adaptation, you can find Kirsten Smith’s novel right here on Amazon.
Linda Gase serves as showrunner on the new series, working with executive producers Shelley Zimmerman, Brin Lukens, and Rebecca Glashow. Amy Andelson, Emily Meyer, and Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith serve as writers and executive producers on “Trinkets,” which is from AwesomenessTV.
Netflix released the video on social media on Friday morning, teasing the series by saying, “Friendship is priceless. Everything else you can steal.”
Filmed in Portland, Oregon, the story picks up after three teenage girls from different corners of the high school cafeteria find themselves in the same mandated Shoplifter’s Anonymous meeting. The trio form an unlikely friendship and things start from there. In the story, Elodie (Brianna Hildebrand) is the grieving misfit, Moe (Kiana Madeira) is the mysterious outsider, and Tabitha (Quintessa Swindell) is the imperfect picture of perfection. The three new friends 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.
While network TV usually adds reality challenges and talent competitions, there will be plenty of new and returning series to watch on Netflix in June. The final season of “Jessica Jones” is coming back in June, along with “Miranda Sings Live… Your Welcome,” “Black Mirror: Season 5,” “3%: Season 3,” “Designated Survivor: Season 3,” “Dark: Season 2,” “Girls Incarcerated: Season 2,” and many more.
