Paramount+ Orders YA Drama ‘School Spirits’ Starring ‘Cobra Kai’ Actress Peyton List


On Wednesday, Paramount+ announced a series order for a new young adult drama under the working title School Spirits. The show will be based on the upcoming graphic novel by Nate & Megan Trinrud and Maria Nguyen.

Produced exclusively for Paramount+ by the Awesomeness Live-Action Studio, the eight-episode season is set to star Peyton List (Cobra Kai, Bunk’d), with Oliver Goldstick serving as showrunner and executive producer (Pretty Little Liars, Bridgerton), along with Nate and Megan Trinrud, who wrote the pilot. Max Winkler (Cruel Summer, Jungleland) is directing the pilot.

School Spirits focuses on a teen stuck in the afterlife who decides to investigate her mysterious disappearance alongside a group of other students who are also stuck in limbo at their high school.

The graphic novel that the show is being based on is planned for publication in fall 2023 by Clarion Books/HarperAlley, an imprint of HarperCollins Children’s Books.

School Spirits joins Paramount+’s growing lineup of YA projects, including the streamer’s hit iCARLY revival, and upcoming film Honor Society starring Angourie Rice (Spider-Man: No Way Home, Mare of Easttown). Both projects were also produced by Paramount’s Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Live-Action Studios.

Production of School Spirits is overseen by Shauna Phelan and Zack Olin, executive vice presidents and co-heads of Nickelodeon and Awesomeness live-action series and film.

The series will premiere on Paramount+, though a date has yet to be announced.
