Hulu's 'Looking for Alaska': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and everything you need to know about the miniseries

The mystery of Alaska Young might finally receive some closure courtesy Hulu! Another of John Green's coming of age rom-com book, 'Looking for Alaska' is about to make its on-screen debut as a series on the streaming platform this coming October, so no more going to the theater and bawling your eyes out like a baby, watching one of Green's fascinating leading ladies' story unfold before she fades away into nothingness. This isn't the first attempt to adapt the novel about a bunch of friends at the fictional school of Culver Creek, as they navigate through friendships, crisis, love, sex, relationships, and loss. But before you binge through the sad tale of Miles Halter and his fascination with Alaska, here's all you need to know about it!

Release date:

Arriving this fall, all eight episodes of the 'Looking for Alaska' miniseries will be premiering on October 18, only on Hulu.


Based on the book of the same name by Green, the story chronicles Miles who goes to a new boarding school "to seek a greater perhaps." There he meets and falls in love with the straight-out-of-every-teen's-fantasy, Alaska, who loves books, cigarettes, and white lilies. Miles meets Alaska through his roommate, the 'Colonel', and thus ensues their weekly shenanigans involving alcohol and cigarettes at the boarding school. Alaska loves pranks and her very hot boyfriend, Jake, so things don't really go well for the hopelessly in love Miles aka 'Pudge'. With quite the devastating plot twist in the middle of the story, Miles's love for Alaska becomes an exploration of figuring out who she really is behind that gorgeous facade of all things perfect.
