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. In July 2019, the series was renewed for a second and final season.
Elodie (Brianna Hildebrand), Moe (Kiana Madeira), and Tabitha (Quintessa Swindell) become friends after finding each other at a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting. The characters have different personalities and personas in school, keeping their friendship a secret: Elodie is an introvert; Moe favors punk style; while Tabitha comes from a wealthy family. They form a deep bond after finding out that they all have a shoplifting habit. Each also finds in the others strength as they navigate their own problems such as family and school issues.
