The Last Summer follows a group of high school grads living in Chicago the summer before they go to college. Mitchell will be playing a character named Phoebe who is “a budding filmmaker in the midst of shooting a documentary about her peers.” The romantic comedy will be directed by Bill Bindley who co-wrote it with Scott Bindley. It will start principal photography later this month.

Mitchell is coming off of five seasons of The Foster’s, which will air a three-part finale later this summer, and will then star in the spinoff with Fosters co-star Cierra Ramirez.
