A multicamera sitcom that was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in 2018 was just picked up for a third season. Netflix announced the renewal for “Alexa & Katie.”
The series, which stars Paris Berelc and Isabel May, was nominated last year for Outstanding Children’s Program.
The third season will launch in two parts featuring eight episodes each, Netflix said.
“The series follows two lifelong best friends on their journey as they face not only the challenges of high school but also the lingering complexities of Alexa’s battle with cancer,” Netflix noted. “Season 3 will follow Paris Berelc (Alexa) and Isabel May (Katie) through their junior and senior years of high school as they learn that together, they can get through anything.”
Among the returning cast members are Tiffani Thiessen, Eddie Shin, Jolie Jenkins, Emery Kelly, Finn Carr and Jack Griffo. Series creator Heather Wordham will continue as executive producer.
