'Betty': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the girl-meets-world drama

Sailing on the success of the 2018 teen drama 'Skate Kitchen', HBO is now about to release the first season of a spin-off TV show, 'Betty'. Most of the original cast from the movie have returned to reprise their roles for the TV show, along with director Crystal Moselle. Arriving right in time as we all continue to self-isolate, quarantined at home, the outdoorsy coming of age flick might just be the dose of activity you need, as you tune in every week. Here's all you need to know about 'Betty'!

Release Date

'Betty' is slated to premiere on HBO this May 1, 2020, at 11 pm. All six episodes will air weekly, every Friday at the same time.


According to the official synopsis provided by HBO, 'Betty' will show "a diverse group of young women navigate their lives through the male-dominated world of skateboarding in New York City." This comes as a sequel to the story of 'Skate Kitchen' which follows Camille, and her life "as a lonely suburban teenager, which changes dramatically when she befriends a group of girl skateboarders. As she journeys deeper into this raw New York City subculture, she begins to understand the true meaning of friendship."

Sierra Ditson 'Crystal' Moselle is critically widely acclaimed for her stellar debut film 'Wolfpack', which was a documentary on the Angulo brothers. Her other well-known works include 'That One Day' and 'Skate Kitchen'.



According to Deadline, Rachelle Vinberg reprises her role as Camille, and the original cast members like Dede Lovelace, Ajani Russell, Moonbear, and Nina Moran are hopping on board as series regulars too. Only Moonbear, who had appeared as Ruby, is joining in as the new character Honeybear, The Hollywood Reporter has reported.




It's your typical girl meets world story with a rough, jagged documentation of the risque lives these young adults navigate: from art to aggression and finding oneself — all amid the conundrum of trying to establish themselves as serious. Check it out right above.
