Netflix is expanding its hit To All the Boys I've Loved Before franchise with a brand new entry!

The streaming giant announced Monday that it has picked up a ten-episode order of a new young adult series titled XO, Kitty, which is a spinoff of the popular To All the Boys I've Loved Before trilogy of films that were previously released.

The new show will center around the character of Kitty Song Covey — To All the Boys central character Lara Jean's (Lana Condor) little sister — played by breakout star Anna Cathcart.

The new series will follow teen matchmaker Kitty as she moves halfway across the world to reunite with her long-distance boyfriend, soon realizing that "relationships are a lot more complicated when it's your own heart on the line," according to Netflix.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before, based on the best-selling book series by Jenny Han, was released in 2018 and was a big success for the streamer, leading to sequels To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You in 2020 and To All the Boys: Always and Forever earlier this year.

The spinoff show starring Descendants star Cathcart, 18, will take the form of ten 30-minute episodes.

The pilot for XO, Kitty was co-written by Han and Siobhan Vivian.
