As smiles and beloved memories fill the air, an alumni reunion meant for nostalgia takes a surprising turn. Tranquility breaks when an apocalyptic tidal wave hits everything in its path. The high school campus, positioned on a hill, remains resilient against this catastrophe. However, the heroines of "Class Of '07" find themselves trapped on the island peak of their former campus, isolated by endless waters.

After attempting to reach out for help, the wait continues without a response. The only way for them to survive in the face of adversity is to cooperate. Community-based life systems become the new norm, but tensions soon escalate into conflicts.

Amidst insults, harassment, and harmful relationships, hidden traumas surface, prompting teenage memories to flood back. Fresh wounds drive them to confront their painful shared past. But within the pain, a bond of friendship and survival weaves itself in the shadows.

"Class Of '07" stands out from similar shows with its quirky and absurd side. Despite the terrifying circumstances in which the characters evolve, humor and lightness sneak into the narrative, creating an unforgettable blend of emotions. Though I wasn't completely swept away by the series, I still enjoyed it. Lingering questions and character developments kept me watching, intrigued to see how it would all conclude.

I was also interested in the presence of a few LGBTQ+ characters.

The plot introduces Tegan, a lesbian, and her friend Megan, who share a deep bond that Tegan secretly hopes could turn romantic.

Furthermore, Renee's character, while not confirmed, seems queer, evident from her proudly wearing rainbow socks at the end of season 1.
