Netflix has optioned Emily Henry’s novel Happy Place for a limited series to be produced by Jennifer Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions Entertainment, Deadline reports.

Henry debuted as a YA author in 2016, but her career caught fire with the publication of her first adult novel, Beach Read, in 2020. Since then she’s published a bestselling rom-com every year: Book Lovers (2021), People We Meet on Vacation (2022), Happy Place (2023), and this year’s Funny Story.

As a Kirkus critic noted in a review of Happy Place, the novel features Henry’s signature combination of funny and poignant: “As always, Henry’s dialogue is sparkling and the banter between characters is snappy and hilarious,” but with the humor comes “a twinge of melancholy” and “a wistfully nostalgic look at endings, beginnings, and loving the people who will always have your back.”

Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, who produced Lopez’s movie Hustlers, among others, posted an Instagram story, “WE CANNOT WAIT TO WORK WITH @emilyhenrywrites on her brilliant amazing novel #happyplace!!!!”

Lopez reposted the story, adding “Can’t wait!”

Not all of Emily Henry’s fans are as excited. On the social media platform X, a user with the handle @billieroan posted, “JENNIFER LOPEZ GET AWAY FROM MY EMILY HENRY.”
