“High School” Is The New Coming-Of-Age Story You’ll Love

In recent years, there has been a resurgence of coming-of-age stories in both film and television.

Whether it’s “Never Have I Ever,” “Reservation Dogs,” or “Love, Victor,” these stories have resonated with audiences because they offer a realistic and honest portrayal of the experience of growing up.

This fall, a brand new coming-of-age story is making its way to our screens.

High School” follows the lives of two teenage sisters as they navigate the path of self-discovery—a journey made even more complicated when you have a twin whose own struggle and self-discovery so closely mimics your own.

Told through a backdrop of ‘90s grunge and rave culture, the series weaves between parallel and discordant memories of twin sisters growing up down the hall from one another.

The trailer for the show that you can watch below gives a glimpse into the emotional and social challenges the two sisters will face during their time in high school.
