Starring Austin Abrams and Midori Francis, the series follows teenagers Dash and Lily who share dares through a journal passed through various locations across New York during Christmas time.

Dash, a self-proclaimed loner who enjoys critiquing bookstore employees on their incorrect shelvings, stumbles upon a red journal stuck in between a stack of books. Inside the journal is a variety of dares, leading him on a shared journey to find Christmas spirit on a holiday that he despises.

Since the series’ initial release, it has successfully claimed a spot on Netflix’s top 10 trending list. With many seeking an escape from the ongoing pandemic, Dash & Lily is the perfect seven-episode series to pull you away for a while.
