It's funny. Sometimes it's the smallest decisions that can pretty much change your life forever
—Felicity to Sally

Felicity is an American drama television series that ran on The WB from September 29, 1998 to May 22, 2002.


An evocative coming-of-age drama, Felicity relates an intimate, character-driven story that captures all of the emotions of striking out in the world for the first time. These are the intoxicating days that come once in a lifetime, when everything is new, emotions are raw, epiphanies are commonplace, and every moment feels like life or death. Learning how to take charge of her life, when to take risks and what it feels like to fail, Felicity embarks on a universal journey into the great unknown.
