Netflix has officially confirmed they’re bringing Alexa & Katie back for a second season. Season one’s 13 episodes premiered on March 23, 2018 with Paris Berelc (Mighty Med, Lab Rats: Elite Force) and Isabel May starring as Alexa Mendoza and Katie Cooper, best friends who stick together through thick and thin.
Netflix’s first tween sitcom also stars Tiffani Thiessen (White Collar, Saved By The Bell) as Lori Mendoza, Alexa’s determined and protective mother. Emery Kelly (Lab Rats, Best Friends Whenever) is Lucas Mendoza, Eddie Shin (The Man in the High Castle, NCIS: Los Angeles) is Dave Mendoza, Jolie Jenkins (Liv and Maddie, One Day at a Time) is Jennifer Cooper, and Finn Carr (Peanuts, Fuller House) is Jack Cooper.
Katie & Alexa was created and executive produced by Heather Wordham (Hannah Montana, Reba). The first season was written by Wordham, Ray Lancon, Todd Linden, Kamon Naddaf, and Erin Wagoner, with Andy Cadiff, Jeff Melman, Trevor Kirschner, Katy Garretson, Victor Gonzalez, and Phill Lewis directing.
The Plot: Alexa & Katie, Netflix’s first fully produced tween sitcom, is a funny and heartwarming show about two best friends eagerly anticipating the start of their freshman year of high school. Despite the fact that Alexa (Berelc) is undergoing cancer treatment, her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for life never falter, especially with her loyal and awkwardly adorable best friend Katie (May) by her side. At times they’re left feeling like outsiders, during a period when what seems to matter most is fitting in.
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.
