Netflix movies and shows: Trinkets season 2

Season 2 of Trinkets also came to Netflix this summer. The show is based on the book of the same name by Kirsten Smith and stars Brianna Hildebrand, Kiana Madeira, Quintessa Swindell and Joy Bryant.

The series revolves around three girls, Elodie, Moe, and Tabitha, who meet during a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting. As they have reputations to keep up during school, they keep their friendship a secret.

Personality-wise, they are also pretty different. Elodie is an introvert, Moe is more punk-rock, and Tabitha comes from a wealthy family. After they find out about each other’s shoplifting habit, their bond strengthens and as the series goes on, they take strength from that friendship to help them get through their issues at home and at school.

Season 2 starts with Elodie on the road with Sabine and Moe and Tabitha keeping her whereabouts a secret. But the road is not as great as Elodie first thought and she returns home and the three friends bond by doing what they do best: shoplifting.

But their relationship isn’t unbreakable. Moe and Tabitha’s bond starts to break when a secret is revealed while Elodie has to deal with finding an extracurricular activity so her dad will get off her back.

Despite their troubles with each other and the shaky ground Moe and Tabitha’s friendship is on, the trio stick together throughout the series. Whether it’s making sure one of them is safe at a Halloween party or soothing each other when something comes up at home or at school, they have each other’s back.

While their parental and school issues are tough, they sometimes deal with even bigger problems than that. At one point, Tabitha is racially-profile and Moe finds herself in the middle of a blackmail scheme.

In the finale, the girls plan one more epic crime.

This show is a bit darker and real than other teen shows, but that’s why the book and the show have been so popular. Unfortunately, the writers and the creators decided to wrap it up and not continue to season 3.

Kiana Madeira explains the decision to DigitalSpy:

"“I think the writers did such a good job of wrapping up the story. Trinkets is based on a book, so sometimes to take one book and spread the story out so much doesn’t really do the story justice. Everyone just decided that two seasons would be the perfect amount of time.”"
