The show will be produced by Legendary Television in association with Plan B. Deadline also reported just about a year ago the show was picked up by Amazon, but now it’s officially a go. Considering the high production value of The Boys the show will likely be of top quality on the Amazon Prime streaming service.

Paper Girls can currently be read in trade paperback across 6 volumes and a deluxe edition of volume 1. So what’s it about? Here’s the official synopsis for volume 1:

In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this critically acclaimed story about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood.

Due to the pandemic, it’s unclear when this show will be able to start filming, but we’ll likely see it released in 2022.
