Literary web series Classic Alice will be joining Amazon Video with longer episodes, starting next week.
A little over a year after Classic Alice released its final episode, the series will be available to watch (or rewatch) on Amazon Prime from May 19th. The series can be purchased through an Amazon account, and be enjoyed at any time on any device with the Amazon app. The original episodes are now edited into longer episodes arranged by the book, a format that is perfect for both new viewers discovering Alice for the first time, and for longtime fans.
Classic Alice earned its popularity for being a web series that spoke directly to book nerds. The show tackles many classics in interesting ways as college student Alice (writer/creator/star Kate Hackett) makes life decisions according to the actions of characters in classic literature. The series prides itself on entertaining viewers while making them think about their favorite books in new ways.
Hackett believes the series grew with the fans, becoming something different as the seasons went on. Something more mature and less straightforward. “If they started in early college or late high school, we were with them through graduation or even further – which means they were more grown up and facing more complex adult relationships themselves,” explains Hackett. “I hope the show reflected that!”
