Netflix has picked up a second season of “Alexa & Katie,” the coming of age story about two best friends eagerly anticipating the start of their freshman year of high school. The logline: Despite the fact that Alexa (Paris Berelc) is undergoing cancer treatment, her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for life never falter, especially with her loyal best friend Katie (Isabel May) by her side. At times they’re left feeling like outsiders, during a period when what seems to matter most is fitting in.
Tiffani Thiessen (“Beverly Hills, 90210”) also stars as Lori, Alexa’s determined and protective mother. Created and executive produced by Heather Wordham (“Hannah Montana”), the show’s star is Alexa and Katie’s friendship; whether it be at school, at home, or in the hospital, they are by each other’s side through thick and thin, serving as role models for modern-day female friendships.
