Watch the Full LOOKING FOR ALASKA BookCon Panel

The LOOKING FOR ALASKA cast and creators are dishing on the big adaptation!

When BookCon hit New York City a couple weeks ago, Hulu showed up at the country’s biggest book event with a panel for Looking For Alaska, their eight episode miniseries based on John Green‘s beloved 2005 novel.

Now, Penguin Teen is sharing a video of the full BookCon panel featuring John Green, stars Kristine Froseth and Charlie Plummer, and showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage!

The panel starts in a very non-book related way: With John Green freaking out about Liverpool winning the Champions League. After that, the group dives into the book being fraught with adaptation struggles, what it was finally like getting the TV adaptation together, putting together the perfect cast, flashing back to 2005, the music inspiring it all, and more. There are some sweet, sad moments but mostly, you’ll be able to laugh along with the antics.

Watch the full panel at the top of the post.

Looking For Alaska hits Hulu on October 18, 2019.
