Here’s a new trailer with an extended look at the adaptation of the critically acclaimed graphic novel Paper Girls from Prime Video. Brian K. Vaughan (Saga) and Cliff Chiang may have created the crew of bike-riding paper girls who get into time-travel hijinks—but the more and more we see the cast bringing them to life, the more we think they just are the characters.
The series stars Riley Lai Nelet as Erin Tang, Sofia Rosinsky as Mac Coyle, Camryn Jones as Tiffany Quilkin, and Fina Strazza as KJ Brandman—who appear from all that we’ve seen so far to be simply perfect. Seeing more bits of their ‘80s-era spunk makes us even more convinced they were pushed out of their time and plopped into ours. Check out the latest trailer below ,which gives us a closer look at those robot bugs unleashed:
It’s so cool to finally get to see more of the two warring time travel factions in action as the girls are chased into 2019. We think we recognize the voice and unmistakable hair as Jason Manzoukas playing the leader of the Old Timers, which is an inspired choice—we’re really interested in seeing some comedy favorites in this sci-fi realm. Also, love that Ali Wong gets to reimagine older Erin, who the girls encounter for help, in a more fully realized way than in the comics. And it seems we also get to see additional expansions beyond volume one of the comics for the television show, which looks like it will bring in other adult versions of the characters into the storyline sooner.
