'Stranger Things' Fans Will Love This Creepy New Netflix Series

When the producers of Stranger Things and the director of The End of the F***ing World team up to create a brand new Netflix show, we know we're in good hands.

Next week, I Am Not Okay With This will drop on the streaming platform and it's got weekend binge-watch written all over it.

The series follows Sydney (It's Sophia Lillis) - a teenage girl who is struggling to cope not only with grief, but with the terrifying superpowers she is beginning to discover.

She's also navigating high school, friendships, sexuality and family troubles, all the while trying to understand who she is and how she came to develop a series of mysterious - but deeply confusing - powers.

It's based on a graphic novel by Charles Forsman and is set to follow a similar storyline of a young girl with telekinetic powers who is in love with her best mate.

"I can make people hurt. Like in their heads. I do it with my mind somehow," says Sydney, in the book. "I'm such a freak. It's no picnic... I get all sweaty and anxious and sometimes I puke my guts out."

Earlier this week, Netflix dropped the trailer for the seven-part series and it looks *so* good.

It opens with Sydney sprinting down the road, seemingly away from the police and covered in blood.

"Dear Diary, go f**k yourself," she says.

In the trailer, viewers see a snippet of what Sydney has been dealing with. She explains: "I keep losing my temper... I don't want to but it just spills out.

"[...] My dad died, last spring, and now everything is so different. Dear Diary, when does this get easier?"

Starring alongside Sophia Lillis are some other familiar faces, including It co-star, Wyatt Olef, as well as The Good Wife's Sofia Bryant.

All seven episodes of the show will drop on Netflix on Wednesday 26th February and at 30 minutes each, there's no excuse not to binge-watch the lot in one sitting...
