We’re pretty obsessed with both titles!

 

2. It will be based off of Jessica Goodman’s novel They Wish They Were Us


A bit about the book: Gossip Girl meets One of Us Is Lying with a dash of The Secret History in this slick, taut murder mystery set against the backdrop of an exclusive prep school on Long Island.

 

3. It’s starring Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney!
