Netflix’s new teen comedy, Alexa & Katie, follows two best friends as they start high school and encounter all of the unique roadblocks that you come across during that time in your life. High school can be quite the intense ride — even more so if you’re facing a life-changing event like an illness, as Alexa does. It can be scary and incredibly hard, but one of the best things about high school is the friends you make along the way.

That in mind, the trailer for Netflix’s Alexa & Katie shows us how two friends not only strengthen their unique friendship upon kicking off their freshman year, but also, how they stick together when things get tough.

And Alexa & Katie is more than your average teen comedy, as it not only talks about two young women becoming adults, but shows Alexa as she battles cancer through all of that change. Alexa is excited to start high school but decides to keep her battle with cancer a secret to ensure that she can have as normal a school experience as possible. Luckily, she’s got her best friend Katie right by her side, supporting her (she even shaves her head in solidarity), and cheering her on.

Seriously, take a look at Netflix’s Alexa & Katie trailer and try to resist the urge to call your bestie and tell them you love them.

If you’re anything like us, you won’t be able to…

We’re so excited about this show and the way it celebrates (female) friendship, especially since it’s targeted at younger viewers. So often, teen dramas are about romance, and while we love that as much as the next person, we also love that Alexa & Katie is shining a spotlight on the importance of keeping your friends close.

We’re so excited for Alexa & Katie to hit Netflix on March 23rd!
