We’re so excited to see them too! John Green fans get to see how they turn out in the limited series. I wish the project had become a movie, but due to some difficulties, it never took off. Nonetheless, this may be my new favorite show and I'll be re-reading Looking for Alaska in preparation for the new year. The show will consist of eight episodes and expected to premiere in 2019.
In the Looking for Alaska @hulu series, Alaska will be played by Kristine Froseth (kristine_froseth on instagram), and Miles will be played by Charlie Plummer (@charliefplummer here and on instagram--but mostly on instagram).— John Green (@johngreen) October 30, 2018
I spoke to Kristine and Charlie on the phone yesterday and it was really special to have a conversation with the people who will become Miles and Alaska. I'm so grateful to them and to everyone involved with the Looking for Alaska series. It's all starting to feel very real!— John Green (@johngreen) October 30, 2018
