Netflix’s very first tween sitcom Alexa & Katie is set to return for a second season. Sophomore year, here we come! Season 1 of Alexa & Katie launched on March 23 and is currently streaming on Netflix. Watch it Here!

About Alexa & Katie:

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 (Paris Berelc – Mighty Med, Lab Rats: Elite Force) is undergoing cancer treatment, her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for life never falter, especially with her loyal and awkwardly adorable best friend Katie (newcomer 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 (White Collar, Saved By The Bell) also stars as Lori, Alexa’s determined and protective mother.

Jennie Garth's Third Husband Dave Abrams Just Reportedly Filed for Divorce

The third time wasn't a charm for Jennie Garth. The 90210 actress' third husband Dave Abrams reportedly filed for divorce on April 6, according to TMZ. The shocking news comes after reports claimed that she and Dave were taking a break in late 2017, but it looks like the time apart didn't help. Dave reportedly cited "irreconcilable differences" in the court docs, which were filed just three days after her 46th birthday on April 3. It looks like Jennie is leaning on her three daughters from her previous marriages to Daniel Clark and Peter Facinelli in this difficult time.

‘Alexa & Katie’ Review: Netflix’s Warmly Goofy Teen Sitcom Combats Cancer With Friendship and Grit

‘Alexa & Katie’ Review: Netflix’s Warmly Goofy Teen Sitcom Combats Cancer With Friendship and Grit
Alexa & Katie” answers the question that no one had thought to ask: What does the Disney-fication of cancer look like? That is by no means a knock on the series, but rather a question that reveals more about how our society shields its kids from the harsh realities that many of them unfortunately have to face every day.

The new teen comedy is part of Netflix’s recent offerings of Ya programming that has ranged from the darkly transgressive “End of the Fucking World,” to the more realistic “On My Block” and the angsty “Everything Sucks!” “Alexa & Katie” is the most lightweight of them all despite the cancer storyline. Everything about the series screams Disney Channel comedy, from the cutesy color palette and kooky shenanigans to the conspicuous laugh track and uniformly beautiful cast.
