What has the response been to I Am Not Okay With This?

Fans and critics alike have praised the new series, with an 80% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Another added: "I just binge watched #iamnotokwiththis and it was so cute. I feel like TV these days really represents the type of teens I could only find in books when I was in high school and I just love it."
