Paramount+ has announced a series order for a young adult drama with the working title “School Spirits,” based on the upcoming graphic novel by Nate & Megan Trinrud and Maria Nguyen.
Produced by the Awesomeness Live-Action Studio, the eight-episode season is set to star Peyton List (“Cobra Kai,” “Bunk’d”), with Oliver Goldstick (“Pretty Little Liars,” “Bridgerton”) serving as showrunner and executive producer, along with Nate and Megan Trinrud, who wrote the pilot.
The series will premiere on Paramount+ on a date to be announced.
“School Spirits” focuses on a teen stuck in the afterlife who decides to investigate her mysterious disappearance alongside a group of other students who are also stuck in limbo at their high school.
The graphic novel is planned for publication in fall 2023 by Clarion Books/HarperAlley, an imprint of HarperCollins Children’s Books.
