What Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff Hope Viewers Take Away From I Am Not Okay With This

What Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff Hope Viewers Take Away From I Am Not Okay With This
Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff aren't strangers to sharing the screen. As former It and It: Chapter 2 costars, the young actors built their friendship years ago, but the experience of recently filming I Am Not Okay With This as Sydney Novak and Stanley Barber gave them another opportunity to grow and add layers to an already-strong foundation.

"Hopefully people are able to relate to the people on screen and get through their own problems."

The Netflix series (based on the graphic novel by the same name) has been described as "Stranger Things meets Sex Education" with a little John Hughes thrown in the mix. It centers on Sydney, an angsty teenager who is struggling to harness an explosive power triggered by her emotions, and her relationships (both familial and friendly) are a focal point of the show's plot. She strikes up a camaraderie with her neighbor Stanley, who becomes her

I Am Not Okay With This: We Think We Know Who That Mysterious Stranger Might Be

I Am Not Okay With This: We Think We Know Who That Mysterious Stranger Might Be
Netflix's I Am Not Okay With This, based on the graphic novel by Charles Forsman, tackles a lot of topics that not just teenagers can relate to, but just about anybody: losing a parent, falling in love with your best friend, having sex for the first time, and realizing you're different from everyone else. Main character Sydney (Sophia Lillis) discovers she's got some sort of magical powers that do everything from knock down trees to make someone explode. It's when she discovers her powers, though, that she also encounters a mysterious stranger who won't stop following her around.

Halfway through the seven-episode season, after Syd has definitely figured out that she has powers and they're triggered by her anger, she starts to feel like someone is following her. She encounters the weird feeling when she's in the library with Stan (Wyatt Oleff) but can't track down anyone. It's when

It's hard not to fall in love with Stanley Barber. That's due in large part to the equally lovable Wyatt Oleff who brings the quirky character to life in Netflix's new teen drama I Am Not Okay with This. The series hails from Jonathan Entwistle, who struck angsty gold with another adaptation of Charles Forsman's comics for The End of the F*cking World. But with that adaptation comes an opportunity to flesh out the characters and add a unique spin to them. That's exactly what Entwistle and Oleff do with the stylish and offbeat …

‘On My Block’ Season 3 Trailer: A Secret Mission to Find Little Ricky, Who Is Somehow Alive (Video)
Netflix’s “On My Block” is returning for Season 3 next month, and this time the four friends have a secret mission — to find Little Ricky, who is, apparently, still alive.

The series is co-created by “Awkward” writer and creator Lauren Iungerich with Jeremy Haft and Eddie Gonzalez. It stars Diego Tinoco as “Cesar Diaz,” Sierra Capri as “Monse Finnie,” Jason Genao as “Ruby Martinez” and Brett Gray as “Jamal Turner” as a group of streetwise teens navigating both the everyday drama of entering high school and the very real dangers of life in inner-city Los Angeles. Other stars include Jessica Marie Garcia as “Jasmine” and Julio Macias as “Oscar.”

Netflix described the new eight-episode season like this: “They thought life was about to return to what passes for normal in Freeridge, but the stakes just got even higher.”

‘It’ Stars Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff Admit ‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Does Feel a Bit Like Derry
Netflix’s latest coming of age series, “I Am Not Okay With This,” finds Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff reuniting for the first time since their breakout roles as Beverly Marsh and Stanley Uris in Stephen King’s “It” film franchise.

Is it just us, or does the quaint, run-down mill town where “I Am Not Okay With This” is set look a lot like Derry, the fictional Maine town where “It” takes place?

In a recent interview with TheWrap, the young actors said it wasn’t on their minds while filming, but in retrospect, there are a lot of aesthetic similarities between the young adult series and the clown-themed horror film franchise.

‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Review: A Sharp Spin on the Typical Superpower Origin Story

‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Review: A Sharp Spin on the Typical Superpower Origin Story
Leave it to a show about emergent supernatural abilities to be a perfect case study in calibration. “I Am Not Okay With This,” the latest Netflix adaptation of a Charles Forsman graphic novel, finds its protagonist Syd Novak (Sophia Lillis) beset by an unexpected, increasingly inconvenient bout of telekinesis. Rather than use this template for a story that escalates to city-toppling mayhem by the end of its opening season, these seven episodes track the evolution of Syd as a person rather than merely extrapolate the things she can’t control.

Even though Syd is introduced covered in blood, wandering dazed down the middle of the street, “I Am Not Okay With This” finds an effective build-in charting the course to get to that point. After an opening episode that threatens to buckle under some of the oppressive nihilism that often plagues “The End of the F***ing World” (also based on

‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Co-Creator on ‘Carrie’ Inspiration, Powers as ‘Creative Metaphor’
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “I Am Not Okay With This,” streaming now on Netflix.

A teenage girl, seemingly in shock, walks down a dark, desolate street wearing a dress covered in blood, with police sirens wailing in the background. “Dear Diary,” her voiceover comes in, a few seconds into the walk, “Go f— yourself.”

And so begins Netflix’s seven-episode adaptation of “I Am Not Okay With This,” based on Charles Forsman’s 2017 graphic novel of the same name. If you don’t know anything about the story, such a visceral opening image likely bring thoughts of trauma and tragedy immediately to your mind; if you know other genre projects before this one, Brian De Palma’s 1976 feature film adaptation of Stephen King’s “Carrie” might also come to mind. Both of those things were intentional for series co-creators Jonathan Entwistle (“The End of the F***ing World

At first glance, Netflix's new super-powered teen series I Am Not Okay with This seems to be an obvious companion to Stranger Things. Not only do the two shows share producers and feature young girls with mystifying powers, but I Am Not Okay with This also stars two of the child actors of the It films, has a distinctly 80s vibe (despite its contemporary setting), and contains a pointed Stephen King nod within its opening moments: a shell-shocked Sydney (Lillis) …

‘I Am Not Okay With This’ on Netflix: TV Review
To be a teenage girl is to be a tight coil of confused rage, a fact that “I Am Not Okay With This” both knows and depends upon. The new Netflix comedy tells the story of Sydney (Sophia Lillis), a seething Pennsylvania teen who first seems to be, as she tells us in a deadpan voiceover dictating the contents of her new diary, “a boring 17 year-old white girl.” But Sydney’s also grappling with a pair of particularly charged friendships, with bubbly Dina (Sofia Bryant) and eccentric Stanley (Wyatt Oleff), and the fact that she’s never quite dealt with the trauma of her father dying by suicide a year earlier. Sydney’s a volcano just waiting for the chance to blow — and when she does, through some sudden supernatural strength that takes her completely by surprise, it’s inevitably a startling catastrophe.

Netflix's upcoming series I Am Not Okay With This reunites It costars Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff, once again playing teenage pals trying their best to navigate growing up while also figuring out how to deal with the supernatural. In real life, Lillis and Oleff certainly seem to have an easygoing friendship, as evidenced by their occasional appearances on each other's Instagrams.

They shared a bit of their mutual admiration in an interview with Zavvi during the It Chapter Two press junket. "We worked on a Netflix show this past Summer, it's called I'm Not Okay With This . . . Sophia is the main character, it's clearly your show, you are great," Wyatt said, before she volleyed back, "He's actually the best thing in it."

Netflix's I Am Not Okay With This Might Not Have a Season 2 - For a Good Reason

Netflix's I Am Not Okay With This Might Not Have a Season 2 - For a Good Reason
Netflix's newest coming-of-age tale is the sci-fi dramedy I Am Not Okay With This. Although the first season doesn't start streaming until Feb. 26, we're already curious if there will be a second season. So far, there's no news, but the source material might have a clue for fans.

I Am Not Okay With This, which follows a teenage girl discovering her superpowers while navigating awkward high school life, is based on a graphic novel by Charles Forsman. Unlike some of the other comic and graphic novel adaptations recently, however, this novel is a standalone work, not part of a series. As such, it means that, in all likelihood, any seasons past the first season would have no source material to build off of and would have to venture into totally original territory. Outpacing or completing the original source material doesn't necessarily have to result in a forced ending for an adaptation,

‘I Am Not Okay With This’ Review: Superpowered Teen Angst in Search of a Story
“I’m a boring 17-year-old white girl,” Syd tells us early in Netflix’s new I Am Not Okay With This, before adding, “I’m not special, is what I’m trying to say.”

But a few episodes later, she warns us, and herself: “If I rage, bad things happen.”

Rage is a threat to — and from — many a 17-year-old girl, special or not. It is often the only sane response to the insane and unfair world around them. But the very act of unleashing that rage can also make

This I Am Not Okay With This review contains no spoilers.

Somewhen between Carrie White, Kitty Pryde and Buffy Summers, adolescent girls and superpowers became a winning combination. All those hormones, all that loneliness and rage, all that feeling like a mutant and being terrified/thrilled by burgeoning sexuality… it’s a metaphor-a-palooza that hasn’t gone unexploited, especially not on screen.

The Craft, Ginger Snaps, Jennifer’s Body and countless others all make the wry point that high school is hell and best friends/parents/quarterbacks can be demons. They also make the more inspiring point that teenage girls - a group doubly disenfranchised by age and gender - have power. Inside them is the strength to fight back, protect others and rain down vengeance on the unworthy,
