Plot Synopsis

ALEXA & KATIE is a half-hour comedy series that centers on two best friends eagerly anticipating the start of their freshman year of high school. Despite the fact that Alexa is undergoing cancer treatment, her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for life never falter, especially with her loyal, quirky, and awkwardly adorable best friend Katie by her side. At times they're left feeling like outsiders, during a period when what seems to matter most is fitting in. The series opens with Alexa's plan to hide her cancer from her classmates and start high school like everyone else is totally doable ... until she starts losing her hair. So the girls come up with a colorful solution to keep Alexa's diagnosis under wraps, but Dave's having trouble adjusting to his daughter's new look. But soon there's a rumor going around school that someone in the class has cancer. Katie tries out for the basketball team, and Lori starts working from home. On Friday, March 23, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire 13-episode first season of ALEXA & KATIE.
