We shouldn’t really be surprised that someone is trying to make the beloved novel, Little Women, into a TV series again. Most of us grew up with the story of the March sisters – Mary, Jo, Beth and Amy – as they go through childhood to womanhood.
This new adaptation will be different from the rest. Instead of taking place in the 1800s, it will be following the new trend of teens in dystopian societies, with this one being set in Philadelphia. Deadline reports that the sisters will try to “unravel a conspiracy that stretches far beyond anything they have ever imagined – all while trying not to kill each other in the process”.
Before we all shoot down this idea, this series could work and might actually be worthwhile. The CW has shown success with this genre before with their critically acclaimed series, The 100. Another thing to consider is the book and soon to be movie, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. While confusing at first, the story actually came together really well, and we’re excited to see the movie.
So who could we cast as the dystopian March sisters?
Zoey Deutch as Jo
The second oldest of the sisters, Jo is the headstrong tomboy and Zoey Deutch would be perfect for the dystopian version of her. Support Zoey Deutch Here!>>
Christa Allen as Meg

Mackenzie Foy as Beth
Mackenzie Foy has the innocent look that the character is supposed to have. Beth is nice and shy, and is often the peacemaker for her sisters. Support Mackenzie Foy Here!>>
Lily Laight as Amy
Lilly Laight could be a good choice to play Amy. She’s the baby of the family and the artist, but is also seen as very self-centered. Support Lilly Laight Here! >>
