Netflix has dropped the official trailer for Heartbreak High, the forthcoming teen comedy-drama series which will be available for streaming on September 14. The video follows Amerie as she becomes a social pariah at school after her sex map got exposed to the whole student body. After losing her best friend because of this controversy, she finds friendship with outsiders Quinni and Darren.
Heartbreak High is an Australian coming-of-age reboot of the 1994 series of the same name. It is created and written by Hannah Caro Chapman, Ben Gannon, and Michael Jenkins.
“Described as a high-octane ride, the series delves into the minds and lives of a group of Australian teenagers,” reads the synopsis. “The discovery of a secret map that charts all the hook-ups in the school year makes its architect, Amerie (16, rebel, loudmouth – The Heart), an instant pariah. In an effort to set the hypersexual students straight, the school forces them into a Sexual Literacy Program. With her new friends, outsiders, Quinni (neuro-divergent truth bomb – The Brains) and Darren (ambitious, super-dooper gay – The Clitoris), Amerie must repair her reputation, whilst navigating love, sex, and heartbreak.”
The eight-episode series stars Ayesha Madon, Jame Majoos, Chloe Hayden, Asher Yasbincek, Thomas Weatherall, Will McDonald, Josh Heuston, Sherry-Lee Watson, Brodie Townsend, Gemma Chua-Tran, Chika Ikogwe, and Rachel House.
It is produced by Jenkins, Carly Heaton, Sarah Freeman, Brian Abel, and Megan Palinkas. It is a production by FremantleMedia.
