In 2019, Prime Video made an agreement with Cliff Chiang and Brian K. Vaughan to make a live-action show with the two as the chief producers. The next year, the streamer revealed that it would be adopting the pair's Image Comics series, Paper Girls.
Last year, Paper Girls encountered a few challenges after Stephany Folsom was revealed to no long co-show run the series. Prime Video unveiled the series' first look after Christopher C. Rogers entirely took up the show running.
What's ‘Paper Girls’ Season One About?
The series narrates the story of a squad of girls who worked a paper delivery route in 1988 and are finally caught amidst a conflict between time-travellers. The young ladies navigate through self-discovery and time as they strive to rescue the world.
To survive, Paper Girls must figure out how to get back home- a journey that will bring them one-on-one with their grown-up versions.
Following a statement from C. Rogers, 'As loyal fans to Brian and Cliff's Paper Girls, we are more than excited by chance to bring this wonderful idea to existence. We present our story from the heart with extraordinary dimensions and colors- we sincerely hope the series will perform greatly.'
