Tween Comedy ‘Alexa and Katie’ Gets a Sophomore Season at Netflix

Sitcom is about two best friends navigating high school

Netflix’s first fully-produced tween sitcom has been renewed for a second season, the streaming service said Monday.

The comedy tells the story of freshman best friends Alexa Mendoza (Paris Berelc) and Katie Cooper (Isabel May). Alexa’s high school experience is complicated by the fact that she’s undergoing cancer treatment, but her gregarious personality never falters. Alexa and Katie go through the ups and downs of high school, trying to fit in during those turbulent years.

“Alexa and Katie” also stars Tiffani Thiessen as Alexa’s mom Lori, along with Emery Kelly, Eddie Shin, Jolie Jenkins and Finn Carr.

“Hannah Montana” alum Heather Wordham created the show and executive produces.

You can stream Season 1 now on Netflix.
