The amount of new original content Netflix throws at its subscribers is nauseatingly high. The hope for the streaming giant is that one of the shows sticks and draws in new subscribers for the company. Get Even is a recent acquisition by Netflix from BBC iPlayer, and the new teen thriller series is something Netflix hopes to draw in more subscribers.
Netflix does not operate on the advertisement model; they are a subscription-based system where audiences can access the content for a fixed monthly payment. This is also one of the reasons why Netflix shows of late have a shorter life span. Just ask critically acclaimed shows like Ozark, Dark, Dead To Me, and many others who did not even get the second season pickup.
If a show does not bring in new subscribers, Netflix axes it with impunity. Get Even is getting a worldwide release; it will reach a large fanbase, but how long the show will last on the streaming service is anyone’s guess. But that is a discussion for another day; we are here to talk about Get Even Netflix series’ cast and other interesting details about the British teen-thriller.

The new Netflix series was released on BBC iPlayer in The UK on 14 February 2020. The show was a critical hit and also made an impact on fans. Holly Phillips developed the show for the screen and was adapted from a novel of the same name by writer Gretchen McNeil. The show features a young diverse British cast and is led by four girls.

Kim Adis leads Get Even cast as Kitty Wei. Kitty is a typically hard-working student who is expected, even pressured, to excel in school by her parents. Mia McKenna-Bruce plays Bree Deringer in the Netflix series. Bree has a rich father, which makes her disregard any rules and frequently gets in trouble at school.
Bethany Antonia plays Margot Rivers in Get Even. She likes to play games and is a technically savvy girl with little to no friends to speak of. Rounding out the leading cast is Jessica Alexander playing the character of Olivia Hayes. She is more like the Queen Bee of the school, but circumstances bring all four girls together.
