‘Dash & Lily’: Netflix’s Latest Addition to Christmas Spirit



Netflix, as you would definitely expect, has been big on their Christmas library. However, what’s bigger than their Christmas libraries is their longing for recreating young-adult novels with the likes of To All The Boys and of course, The Kissing Booth. While the streaming giant has been on an absolute role with the genres, they’ve finally decided to mix both together in the form of Dash & Lily.

What it’s about:

In 2010, David Levithan and Rachel Cohn were responsible for the creation of Dash & Lily. The young-adult novel tells the story of a Lily who leaves a challenge-filled notebook at her favorite bookstore in New York in the hopes that the “right guy” is willing to accept the obstacles that come alongside the notebook. 

As per the title, the “right guy” is none other than Dash himself! The series is followed by the books The Twelve Days Of Dash & Lily and Mind The Gap, Dash & Lily

Netflix has also provided the official synopsis of the series: 

“A whirlwind holiday romance builds as cynical Dash and optimistic Lily trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations all across New York City.”


The cast remains to be one of the youngest to ever do it for the streaming giant. The eight-episode Netflix series, Dash & Lily, will be starring Euphoria’s Austin Abrams and Midori Francis as Dash and Lily, respectively. 

Alongside them are Dante Brown as Dash’s best friend named Boomer, Troy Iwata as Lily’s older brother named Langston, Glenn McCeun as Edgar Thibaud, Ianne Fields Stewart as Roberta, Gideon Emery as Adam, Laila Drew as Alice, and Keana Marie Issartel as Sofia (Dash’s ex-girlfriend). 

Release Date:

Luckily for those who’ve been waiting for Dash & Lily, the eight-episode holiday special will be coming to Netflix on the 10th of November, 2020! Ready your popcorn and your Christmas spirits by then.


A sweet little teaser was released by Netflix and in there, audiences will see Lily’s hope for love as she narrates: 

Imagine you’re in New York and it’s Christmas. You’re surrounded by the possibility and the hope that somewhere in the city is that one person that’s meant for you. You just have to find them.” 

Do I dare,” asks Dash. With scenes like these, Christmas will be shriek-filled of fun. 


The Christmas spirit is within the audience––just Netflix style this time. Dash & Lily has been a big part of David Levithan and Rachel Cohn’s success as writers, and Netflix gave them the series it deserves. 

Starring Austin Abrams and Midori Francis, the New York Christmas series will be coming to Netflix on the 10th of November, 2020. Make sure to watch Netflix’s teaser so you won’t be missing out on the Christmas excitement!
