An aggressively sweet teen drama, hitting Netflix on November 10, in case you don't know dash and lily Netflix release date, with interesting reviews.

As soon as we enter into the month of November, many folks immediately take out their Christmas lights, start listening to the jingle bell songs or even begin streaming their marathons of Christmas movies to watch for the next two months.

Pandemic or not, everyone is bustling with Christmas spirits, all thanks to Netflix’s consecutive seasonal offerings for the holiday entertainment!

Among all that, Netflix’s latest series ‘Dash & Lily’ is certainly going to be the centerpiece of our TV screens for the next few weeks at least.

Based on Rachel Cohn and David Levithan’s 2010 YA novels, Dash & Lily is a full-fledged Christmas-themed TV series, with charming leads, sophisticated plot, and cutesy storytelling, which makes the series an ultimate winner among the holiday pack, unlike any other comedy series!

If you’re binging it already, you’ll definitely enjoy these shocking facts about this young-adult drama Dash & Lily:

Warning: there are spoilers for the series and the dash and lily book ahead.

The series is quite different from the book

While the show maintained the book's fun tone and its point-of-view-switching format, it altered some character arcs, major plotlines, and other details.

Here’s how this series is different from the book:

Dash and Lily are younger in the book…

In the book, Dash & Lily appear to be a year younger than actually in the series.

Dash and Lily are supposed to be 16 years of age, according to the book, which makes them high school juniors. But the series features them as high school seniors.

Lily’s red boots have a different meaning in the book

A bit more like Cinderella, Lily’s red boots play a larger role in the series.

Basically, she leaves behind her red boots at the Hanukkah party, which later helps Dash to reach out to her after she fails to complete a dare.

On the show, those boots come from a store that deals with costume supply and rented by Lily’s aunts years ago. However, in the book, the boots were majorette booths from Lily’s great-aunt from high school.

Lily has a cruel nickname, which heavily mentioned in the book but completely cut off from the show

In the book, Lily’s nickname is “Shrilly’

During her childhood, she once screamed at a cat who had eaten her gerbil. Since then, she can’t stop screaming, so the other kids nickname her “Shrilly.”

But on the show, she was called “weird” by Edgar during a scene involving handmade bracelets.

Edgar and Lily never kiss in the book

According to the book, Edgar and Lily do go on a movie date but they don’t kiss.

The Netflix treatment shows Lily kissing Edgar after getting drunk with her caroling group, which is also witnessed by Dash.

Netflix series ‘Lily & Dash’ is heavily clichéd

It wouldn’t be a Netflix typical Christmas series without a black best friend, gay BFF, and some third-wheeling characters.

I mean Lily was incredibly lucky that a handsome dude discovered her diary but the reality is far opposite. The only people who hang around in the libraries these days are 60 years old adults, so consider it as an unrealistic cliché young romance, mostly influenced by the likes of Sleepless in Seattle or (500) Days of Summer.

In the Lily & Dash series, you will hardly find anything you haven’t watched in typical rom-com movies, so Merry Christmas I guess! check out the dash and lily Netflix trailer to find out.

Dash and Lily book of dares: Nick Jonas is one of the producers of the show

Let’s admit this, we didn’t see that coming…

Lily & Dash is the actor and musician’s first producing project for his recently introduced Shingle Image 32 launches on Netflix.

And the best part is that dash and lily Netflix cast also features Joe Jonas' cameo as well as the performance from Jonas Brothers in later episodes.
