It’s been just a week since the sci-fi time traveling series Paper Girls premiered on Prime Video, and there are a lot of questions to be asked if we receive a second season. Viewers of the show have compared it to Netflix’s Stranger Things. However, with the time traveling and characters seeing future versions of themselves opens up a whole new conversation about the series. In recent interview with star Sofia Rosinsky at Collider Ladies Night goes into details:
“I feel that Mac’s sense of humor is very present throughout Season 1, of course, sort of until she learns certain shocking news. Then it sort of starts to die down a little bit, as it would, based on the news that she heard. But I would say that probably at the beginning of the series, Mac is very guarded and she’s a really tough nut to crack, but… when she hears of certain news, I think that shell starts to melt away a little bit because she realizes there’s no point in trying to keep that up and trying to keep her guard up. Really, there’s no point. It’s useless now. So I think that, in one way, it’s pretty claustrophobic for her, but then at the same time, it’s actually quite freeing because there’s no need for that. She adopted this shell for the environment around her at home. She has a very rough home life. She’s had to be very strong to survive all that, and I think that it’s interesting that based on the good, positive influence these girls have had on her, and also just this information that she finds out, she’s able to let that go a little bit and actually explore who she wants to be and who she knows she is behind that shell, and I think just seeing her sense of humor come through and seeing her character change — she has a beautiful arc and I just am looking forward to exploring that hopefully.”
Rosinsky isn’t the only one excited for a potential second run. During a series panel at this year’s SDCC, showrunners and executive producers Brian K. Vaughan, Christopher C. Rogers, and Cliff Chiang said they “absolutely have a direction planned” and they hope they get to do it, they told Collider .
Paper Girls is based on the comic book series of the same name written by Brian K. Vaughan and artist Cliff Chiang, which ran for 30 issues between 2015 and 2019. The series was adapted for television by Stephany Folsom ( Toy Story 4, Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power) The cast includes Camryn Jones, Riley Lai Nelet, Ali Wong, Adina Porter, Nate Corddry, Finna Strazza.
