The series depicts the life of Jentry Chau (Wong), a Chinese American teenager in a small Texas town who discovers that a demon king is pursuing her due to her repressed supernatural abilities. In her quest to defeat the monsters of the underworld while still attending high school, she receives assistance from a Chinese hopping vampire and her great-aunt, who is a skilled weapons expert.

This is not the first time Wong and Netflix have collaborated. Wong has three comedy specials on the streaming platform and has starred in multiple projects, including romantic comedy film “Always Be My Maybe” and her new series “Beef,” which also stars Steven Yeun.
