You might be thinking that Netflix doesn’t exactly need another coming-of-age drama series, but we’re getting one anyway so we might as well roll with it. This one, Grand Army, is from playwright Katie Cappiello and is slated for release on October 16. Plot information is pretty thin on the ground so this teasing logline will have to do:
Grand Army tunnels into a generation that’s raging and rising. Five students at the largest public high school in Brooklyn take on our chaotic world as they fight to succeed, survive, wild out, break free and seize the future.
Anyway, we’ve got a load of goodies as ever, so let’s get to that.
