This past weekend at BookCon, Hulu teased an upcoming release that fans have been waiting on for years: The adaptation of John Green‘s debut novel Looking For Alaska.
The novel and its adaptation follow Miles “Pudge” Halter, a Florida teen who discovers himself in an Alabama boarding school among a close, eclectic group of new friends, including the whimsical object of his affection, Alaska Young. When tragedy strikes unexpectedly, Pudge’s whole life will be thrown into question as he and his friends try to cope with the impossible.
The panel featured John Green, producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, as well as stars Charlie Plummer and Kristine Froseth. The series trailer didn’t debut as part of the action, but two clips from the show were shown– one focused on Miles and Alaska, another that showed off the cast’s group dynamic.
The panel isn’t online quite yet, but Hulu was kind enough to announce the show’s release date at the event: October 18, 2019.
Get your tissues ready because we’re all officially going to be a MESS this fall!
