Cheerleaders and Murder — USA Network’s 'Dare Me' Series Got Its Start As a Book

By

Starting on Dec. 29, the show Dare Me is coming to the USA Network. It’s about high school cheerleaders, but don’t expect it to be the new Bring It On. The Dare Me trailer reveals that the show definitely involves cheerleading, but its tone is much more similar to that of Euphoria or Pretty Little Liars. Interestingly enough, the new drama series is actually based on a book of the same name. Here’s what we know about the Dare Me book.

The Dare Me book was written by Megan Abbott.

Abbott is an award-winning author who has written several psychological thrillers and mysteries including The End of Everything and Give Me Your Hand. Dare Me isn’t the only book that’s being adapted into a series — in 2018, the New York Times reported that four of Abbott’s novels were being developed for TV. Needless to say, she’s been pretty busy.
