Netflix has dropped the first trailer for the upcoming series, Everything Now, a comedy-drama that delves into the turbulent lives of British teenagers.
Created by writer Ripley Parker, Everything Now tells the story of 16-year-old Mia, portrayed by Sophie Wilde, known for her role in A24’s acclaimed horror film Talk to Me.
Mia’s return to sixth form after a seven-month battle with anorexia in rehab thrusts her into a world she has missed out a lot on. She grapples with evolving friendships, young love, and the chaos of adolescence as she returns to school.
The official trailer gives viewers a taste of what to expect: intense friendships, heartache, budding romance, and wild parties. The ensemble cast includes Lauryn Ajufo, Harry Cadby, Noah Thomas, Sam Reuben, Niamh McCormack, Jessie Mae Alonzo, Robert Akodoto, Vivienne Acheampong, Alex Hassell, and the legend Stephen Fry.
Parker mentioned that Everything Now will shine a light on mental health issues, particularly those related to food and body image, which many British teenagers grapple with.
This series joins the ranks of popular teen-focused Netflix shows like Heartstopper and Sex Education, and even has streaks of Euphoria but actually looks tamer than Sam Levinson’s hyperstylised vision of high school horrors.
Everything Now is set to debut on Netflix on October 5th, 2023. You can watch the trailer here:
