Possibly the best matchmaker of all time is Kitty Song Covey (Anna Cathcart). Are you sure? Even though Lara Jean (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) have evident chemistry in All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Kitty is ultimately responsible for setting them up.
The adorable younger sibling finally gets her chance at romance. Here we have XO, Kitty, a 10-part prequel to To All the Boys. The young adult romantic comedy will bring us back to Kitty, now 16, on May 18. As the new teaser suggests, a lot has changed in the four years since we last saw the youngest Song Covey sister. Kitty is now operating primarily at her main character level.
“She’s stepping into the fore — picking up the baton from Lara Jean,” adds co-showrunner Sascha Rothchild.
Kitty, determined to make her own way in the world, leaves Portland, Oregon to enroll at the Korean Independent School of Seoul (KISS), the same institution that educated her mother. Dae (Minyeong Choi), Kitty’s long-distance boyfriend, is also a member of KISS. Love expert Kitty learns the hard way in Seoul that putting one’s own heart on the line makes even the simplest of relationships difficult.
Jenny Han, writer and co-showrunner of XO, Kitty, and author of the To All the Boys novels, tells Tudum, “XO, Kitty really is Kitty’s story and that’s part of the reason why I really wanted to set this story in a different place.” If you were to drive by the iconic Covey home and their Portland, Oregon high school, your first thought could be, “Oh, what is Lara Jean up to?”
I wonder what she’ll be doing today. Who else will be going on this trip with her? Read on as Han and Rothchild explain the meaning of the new Season 1 picture and address your most pressing concerns about the upcoming XO, Kitty season, such as whether or not you’ll need to brush up on your To All the Boys knowledge.
XO Kitty Release Date
On May 18, Netflix will release all 10 episodes of XO, Kitty. This occurs two years after the release of To All the Boys: Always and Forever, the series’ concluding film.
With the recent release of Queen Charlotte, the miniseries prequel to the smash hit series Bridgerton, May is a busy season for Netflix originals, especially for romance aficionados. Check out the Netflix May additions.
The tweet below confirms the release date:
Is There a Trailer for XO: Kitty?
In fact, a First Look teaser for XO Kitty debuted on Netflix in March of 2023. A month later, the movie’s trailer was released; you can view both of them now:
Kitty appears in this footage as she argues with her father over studying abroad during high school. Her justification is that she values developing her friendship with Dae and would like to gain insight into her mother’s life.
After that, Kitty finally arrives in Seoul, the setting of her dream movie. When she learns that Dae has a second girlfriend, however, the situation swiftly escalates into chaos. There will probably be a lot of shenanigans involving romance.

I think she’s very ready and capable to do so.”
Showrunner Jenny Han, who wrote the franchises’ original books – and also penned this series’ pilot episode – did hint to Insider that cameos could be in the horizon for Lara Jean and Peter, stating: “That would be, like, a dream to see them again. But we’ll have to wait and see.”
