School Spirits: Peyton List doesn’t know she’s dead in first trailer for Paramout+ series

Paramount+ announced that it will expand its catalog for young adults by premiering new series such as ‘School Spirits’ and movies aimed at that demographic. The story centers on a girl who dies and is welcomed into the afterlife by several people who were murdered in high school.

As inconvenient as it is for a young woman to die in her teens, Maddie (Peyton List) she will discover that her time in the afterlife will be even more annoying because she doesn’t know who killed her or why. So if unfinished business is a reason to get stuck in this particular otherworldly location, Maddie certainly has plenty of it. The more she investigates, the more secrets she discovers about her high school life, secrets she hadn’t even thought of before.

The first advance of School Spirits it also hints at what will probably be one of the best elements of the series: a support group of “spirits” to express their feelings of leaving too soon. The colorful characters in the support group give off ‘The Club of Five’ vibes (The Breakfast Club) if they were, you know, ghosts. Aside from that, we can also expect plenty of dark humor and deadpan comedy as the lines between life and the afterlife begin to blur.

School Spirits it’s such a compelling story that it was adapted before the graphic novel it’s based on was even released: Created by Nate & Megan Trinrud and Maria Nguyen, the graphic novel may end up hitting shelves after the series premieres. However, the program is in good hands: Oliver Goldstick serves as executive producer and executive producer after writing for Bridgerton Y Pretty Little Liars.

Nate and Megan Trinrud wrote the pilot episode, so you can be 100% sure that the spirit of the source material will be there. Last but not least, Max Wrinkler (Cruel Summer) set the tone for the series by directing the first two episodes.
