Adam Silvera’s bestseller queer YA drama novel ‘They Both Die At The End’ will soon be streaming on our screens!
Netflix apparently won the bid against four other streamers and networks for the rights for the series adaptation of Silvera’s 2017 New York Times bestseller.
News of ‘They Both Die At The End’ getting adapted into a series came out first in 2019. Originally supposed to be a half-hour miniseries under HBO, eOne took it in March 2022 for production. Chris Van Dusen was tapped to executive produce and co-write the series alongside Silvera, signaling Dusen’s return to Netflix as an executive producer and showrunner following the hit period drama Bridgerton.
‘They Both Die At The End’ tells the story of two teenagers, Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio, who, on September 5, receive calls from Death-Cast, a company that can predict death, that they only have twenty-four hours left to live. They then decide to meet and spend the rest of their time together, fulfilling several last-minute adventures and wishes for others and themselves. It’s a tragic drama and short-lived queer romance that is sure to pull on your heartstrings.
