The paper girls the TV series unfortunately will not be returning to Prime Video for a second season. Amazon canceled the show after just one season, according to Deadlinewhich is somewhat surprising given its 90% reviews and 88% audience on rotten tomatoes.

The show, adapted from comic books created by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Cliff Chiang, focuses on a group of 12-year-old paper girls from the 1980s who find themselves thrown into the future where some of them they have a run-in with their future selves, all in the midst of a time war.

The show involves Vaughan and Chiang as executive producers and is presented by Stephany Folsom (Toy Story 4, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power). It features Sofia Rosinksy, Camryn Jones, Riley Lai Nelet, and Fina Strazza as the four paper girls.

The first season laid the groundwork for the world, but also ended on a cliffhanger that begs for a second season. The good news here is that Legendary Television, the company along with Amazon that backed the series, still plans to make the series go round.

There are popular shows like Euphoria centered around young female protagonists, so hopefully another streaming platform or network picks it up; it would be great to see on screen how the girls travel through time and save the world, while trying to get back to their original period.
