It’s the day after Halloween in 1988 when four young friends accidentally stumble into an intense time war and find themselves inexplicably transported to the year 2019. When they come face-to-face with their adult selves, each girl discovers her own strengths as together they try to find a way back to the past while saving the world of the future.
The show is based on much beloved Paper Girls comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and artist Cliff Chiang that debuted in 2015. The trailer formally introduces the four paper girls in question: Mac Coyle (Sofia Rosinsky), Tiffany Quilkin (Camryn Jones), KJ Brandman (Fina Strazza), and Erin Tieng (Riley Lai Nelet). They’re not exactly friends when they cross paths in 1988, they simply share the same job. But somehow, they find themselves trapped in 2019. And it’s not the same present that we lived through. In this world, time travel is a crime, and these girls are suddenly wanted fugitives.
Executive producers are Christopher C. Rogers, Stephany Folsom, Christopher Cantwell, Brian K. Vaughan, Cliff Chiang, Steven Prinz and Plan B. Folsom created the series for television.
