‘Kiss Me First’ is a British cyber-thriller drama series which airs on Channel 4 in the UK and is available on Netflix internationally. Created by ‘Skins’ co-creator Bryan Elsley, the show is a loose adaptation of Lottie Moggach’s 2013 novel, which is also called Kiss Me First.
In January 2016, it was reported that Netflix and Channel 4 subsidiary E4 were adapting Moggach’s novel into a television series. Filming for the show began in December 2016 and ended in the middle of 2017, and the filming locations included London and a few locales in Croatia. Subsequently, more than two years after its announcement, Season 1 premiered on Channel 4 in the UK on April 2, 2018. A couple of months later, the show was made available on Netflix worldwide. With Season 1 having concluded, fans of the show are now wondering whether ‘Kiss Me First’ will return for a second season. Here’s everything we know about it thus far.
Kiss Me First Cast: Who is in it?
In the show, Tallulah Haddon plays the role of the protagonist, 17-year-old Leila Evans / Shadowfax, while Simona Brown plays Tallulah’s seductive friend Tess / Mania. Matthew Beard, meanwhile, plays the role of Adrian Palmer, while Matthew Aubrey steps into the shoes of Jonty, thereby wrapping up the list of main cast members in the show.
Recurring cast members in the show include George Jovanovic as Cyril Niemec / Calumny, Freddie Stewart as Kyle / Force, Misha Butler as Jack Innes / Jocasta, Haruka Abe as Tomiko Teshima / Tippi, Samuel Bottomley as Ben / Denier, Philip Arditti as Azul, and Geraldine Somerville as Ruth Palmer.
If the show does get renewed for a second season, we would expect most of the aforementioned cast members to make a comeback and reprise their roles. Of course, those who have exited the show owing to their characters’ story arcs coming to an end might not return. Season 2 could also see some additions to the cast, but we haven’t heard anything about that yet. We will update this section as soon as we know more about the cast of Season 2.
Kiss Me First Plot: What is it about?
The events which unfold in ‘Kiss Me First’ is partly based in the real world, and partly in the virtual world. As a result, part of the show is live-action, while the rest of it is computer-generated.
