Brian K Vaughan, the creator of the show, and Cliff Chiang, the two who designed the comic, have opened up about the heartbreaking shift in the show's narrative.

The showrunners discussed any changes or additions they made to the program that they were particularly proud of during a roundtable panel discussion at the 2022 San Diego Comic Con.

"Mac's brother is a character in the book, and we see him a time or two," Vaughan added. "But if you've seen the series, there are some scenes that just break my heart.

"And I'm like, 'Wow, is this a missed opportunity?' I wish we had done this. I think every new character that they added felt natural to our story.

"They could have been in the comic, but they just didn't have the space for it." "I think the new people that came in [like] Larry and Nate [Corddry]'s role in that], are fantastic. Those surprises, getting to see a story that we lived so deeply inside of us and still be surprised by it? That's the best."

Paper Girls is a Stranger Things meets Doctor Who science fiction drama about a group of young newspaper delivery girls (hence the show's name), who suddenly and mysteriously become time travellers, substituting Halloween 1988 for the more recent 2019.

As they try to get back to their past self and meet their future self, as well other time-hoppers, there is a lot of confusion. One question remains: will they be able to save the world?

Sofia Rosinsky plays Mac Coyle, Camryn Jones plays Tiffany Quilkin, Riley Lai Nelet plays Erin Tieng, Fina Strazza plays KJ Brandman, along with Ali Wong, Adina Porter (American Horror Story) and Nate Corddry (For All Mankind) rounding out the cast.

Paper Girls is now available on Prime Video.
