HBO Max's New Teen Dramedy 'Genera+ion' Looks Deliciously Queer
The first trailer centers Justice Smith as an angsty queer high schooler.
Move over Euphoria, HBO Max has another teen series coming our way.
The streaming service just released the trailer for Genera+ion, a new dramedy featuring Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star Justice Smith, Martha Plimpton, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Chloe East, Uly Schlesinger, Chase Sui Wonders, and Haley Sanchez.
The trailer is deliciously queer, features music from Todrick Hall and Troye Sivan, and follows the eclectic cast of characters as they explore their sexualities, identities, and the usual high school shenanigans. Smith plays Chester, a flirtatious water polo player with style, his queer best friend, another boy struggling to hide his bisexuality, and even a girl named Arianna who announces that her gay parents are looking for a third to bring into their relationship.
We're loving all the gay drama already. According to Entertainment Weekly, "The series came under fire while in production recently when it was reported that two extras fled the set feeling blindsided by dead cats that were brought in for a dissection scene."
Genera+ion was created by 19-year-old Zelda Barnz and her father Daniel Barnz, who is a director. Lena Dunham is an executive producer.
Generation premieres March 11 on HBO Max. Watch the trailer below:
