Showrunner Grace Edwards told Huffington Post in December: "We’re gonna see Jodie Landon, who used to be the perfect Black teen, come to a whole other environment and realize that she was the big fish in the small pond. And now she’s a small fish in the ocean. It’s about her just growing into being an adult in a different environment than Lawndale where we get to see the 360 degree, full, three-dimensional character."
Daria fans might remember that in Is It College Yet?, which served as a sort of extended series finale, Jodie was wrestling with the decision to go to Crestmore University (likely a stand-in for Harvard or Yale) or Turner College (presumably a stand-in for Howard University or another HBCU). She ended up choosing Turner (after a little well-intended meddling from her boyfriend Mack that worked out for the best), so it makes sense that she might end up facing a bit of an identity crisis after all those years as a "big fish," as Edwards put it.
According to Variety’s recent report, Jodie will be facing this identity crisis in a big city, as an intern at a major tech company called Firstfinity.
