Netflix’s ‘Sierra Burgess Is a Loser’ Drops Trailer Starring Shannon Purser


Netflix has another new movie coming out that will star Riverdale‘s Shannon Purser.

You may know her as Barb from Stranger Things, or more recently as Ethel in Riverdale, but now Purser has the spotlight right on her in the upcoming movie, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser.

Netflix released the first trailer that shows Sierra (played by Purser) as an amazing student, musician, friend, but not very popular with her high school peers — especially mean girl Veronica. Things get a little more interesting in Sierra’s life when she receives a text from a boy at school. She accidentally, but definitely, is catfishing him when she realizes he thinks he is talking to Veronica.

She comes to Veronica with a deal so that, in some crazy way, Sierra could make this whole catfish situation turn out well between her and the cute boy. But, based on the trailer, this story could more than just a high school rom-com. Perhaps it will focus on self-acceptance on Sierra’s part, too.

Joining Purser is Kristine Froseth, RJ Cyler, Noah Centineo, and more. Sierra Burgess Is a Loser is set to hit Netflix on September 7.
