What is the Plot of Paper Girls?
The debut season of Paper Girls is illustrated as “a high-stakes personal journey depicted through the eyes of four girls,” as per the official synopsis. Tiffany Quilkin, Erin Tieng, Mac Coyle, and KJ Brandman “are out on their delivery route when they become caught in the crossfire between warring time-travelers, changing the course of their lives forever. Transported into the future, these girls must figure out a way to get back home to the past — a journey that will bring them face-to-face with the grown-up versions of themselves.
“While reconciling that their futures are far different than their 12-year-old selves imagined, they are being hunted by a militant faction of time-travelers known as the Old Watch, who have outlawed time travel so that they can stay in power,” the synopsis resumes. “In order to survive, the girls will need to overcome their differences and learn to trust each other, and themselves.”
The series is executive produced by Stephany Folsom, Christopher C. Rogers, Christopher Cantwell, Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Christina Oh, Brian K. Vaughan, Cliff Chiang, and Steve Prinz and produced by Vail Romeyn.
Season One of Paper Girls is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
