We loved Shannon Purser in her role as Barbara in Stranger Things. Well, she didn’t make an appearance in the second season, but the third season should see more of her. And before that, we have in her own Netflix film, Sierra Burgess is a Loser. The Netflix original will star Chrissy Metz, RJ Cyler, Kristine Froseth, Noah Centineo, Alan Ruck and Lea Thompson.
The Netflix original is a rom-com with a dash of fun and intrigue. Sierra (Shannon) is a young high school girl who must win the heart of her crush, after a case of mistaken identity starts an unexpected romance.
This is certainly a change of pace for Sierra, who was last seen falling in a mysterious chasm down a swimming pool and was never heard of again. She’s also seen in Riverdale, another high-school/college series, but this one was a little darker than the namesake’s original appearance, in Archie’s Comics.
Netflix doesn’t have a lot of college and romance type of series or films, so it will be nice to see Shannon and others in something that could be a fluffy, light hearted romantic comedy on Netflix.
