Trinkets is an American teen drama web television series, based on the novel of the same name by Kirsten Smith. The series is created by Smith, Amy Andelson, and Emily Meyer. It was released on Netflix on June 14, 2019.[1] In July 2019, the series was renewed for a second and final season.

Plot[edit]

Elodie (Brianna Hildebrand), Moe (Kiana Madeira), and Tabitha (Quintessa Swindell) become friends after finding each other at a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting.[2] The characters have different personalities: Elodie is an introvert; Moe favors punk style; while Tabitha comes from a wealthy family.[2] They form a deep bond after finding out that they all have a shoplifting habit.[3] Each also finds in the others strength as they navigate their own problems such as family and school issues.

Cast and characters[edit]

Main[edit]

  • Brianna Hildebrand as Elodie Davis, a socially awkward teenage kleptomaniac who moves from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Portland, Oregon to live with her father and his family after the death of her mother.

  • Kiana Madeira as Moe Truax, an academically talented teenager from a financially challenged family who also attends SA meetings. She has commitment and trust issues due to an absent father with a criminal record but is fiercely loyal to her mother and manages to form a close bond with Elodie and Tabitha for support. She has a secret, romantic relationship with Noah Simos.
  • Quintessa Swindell as Tabitha Foster, a fellow kleptomaniac who comes from a wealthy family. She struggles with who she is supposed to be to please everyone and who she wants to be to make herself happy, but the close bond she has with Moe and Elodie helps her come to terms.
