Fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of Hulu’s latest adaptation, Looking for Alaska, based on John Green’s novel. Well, wait no more! The release date was officially announced at BookCon over the weekend.
Josh Schwartz, producer of the series, ended the ‘John Green’s Looking for Alaska’ panel by announcing that all eight episodes of Hulu’s new series would be available October 18th. Hulu has had much success with book-to-screen adaptations, like 11/22/63 and, more recently, Catch-22. This will be the third time one of Green’s books finds its way to the screen. This comes as no shock, seeing as both The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns had significant success.
Looking for Alaska captures the life of Miles “Pudge” Halter after he is brought into Alaska Young’s world at boarding school. Captivated by the beauty just down the hall, his life will never be the same. The book has been nominated for several awards, including the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Young Adult Fiction.
Joining Schwartz for the panel event was John Green, Stephanie Savage, Charlie Plummer, and Kristine Froseth. Are you excited for the latest John Green adaptation?
