Amazon Gives Series Order to PAPER GIRLS

Well, this is some fantastic news to end your week with. Yes, as the headline suggests, Amazon is finally moving forward with a series order for a Paper Girls TV series.

In an official statement, Amazon confirmed that Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang’s Vertigo title is being turned into a small-screen offering – with the on-demand video service having been making tentative plans for just such an adaptation for a year now.

Toy Story 4 co-writer Stephany Folsom is on writing duties for the project and will serve as showrunner, with Vaughan and Chiang producing alongside Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers.

A tale of mystery and science-fiction centred on four young newspaper delivery girls, Paper Girls debuted in October 2015, going on to run for 30 issues before culminating in July 2019.

Only a matter of weeks before the comic book title came to an end, it was announced that Paper Girls would be turned into a TV series, but it’s largely been radio silence on that front ever since. That is, of course, until now.

For those not familiar with Paper Girls, if Amazon gets this right, you’ll be in for an absolute treat.
