Netflix has shared the first trailer for their upcoming queer teen drama Everything Now.
The British series, set to premiere 5 October, follows a 16-year-old called Mia who “returns home after a lengthy recovery from an eating disorder”.
“She is thrust back into the chaotic world of sixth form only to find that her friends have moved on with teen life without her,” reads the synopsis.
“Along with an ever-evolving bucket list, three best mates and a major new crush, Mia throws herself headfirst into a world of dating, parties and first kisses, soon discovering that not everything in life can be planned for.”
Mia is played by Sophie Wilde, who recently shot to fame as the lead in A24’s acclaimed horror film Talk to Me, which became the studio’s highest-grossing film in the United States.
Vivienne Acheampong, known for their role as Lucienne in Netflix’s fantasy drama The Sandman, will play Mia’s mother Viv. Stephen Fry has been cast as Mia’s doctor, Dr. Nell.
Additional cast members includes Lauryn Ajufo, Harry Cadby, Noah Thomas, Sam Reuben, Niamh McCormack, Jessie Mae Alonzo, Robert Akodoto and Alex Hassell.
According to writer and creatot Ripley Parker, the series focuses “on mental health issues faced by many British teenagers, particularly those surrounding food and body image.”
Everything Now will run for eight episodes – check out the first trailer.
