Netflix has confirmed a release date for upcoming teen drama Everything Now.
Created by Ripley Parker – whose mother is Thandiwe Newton – the series follows teenager Mia (Talk To Me's Sophie Wilde) as she rejoins sixth form after being hospitalised for anorexia nervosa. It's set to premiere on the streamer on October 5.
Netflix has also shared an extended trailer, seeing Mia struggling to readjust to life at school and hanging out with her friends again as she's eager to make up for everything she's lost while in hospital.
Initially greenlit as an eight-episode series called The Fuck-It Bucket, the show has maintained the same number of episodes but changed its title to the current one in March 2023.
Alongside Wilde, Everything Now also stars Boiling Point's Lauryn Ajufo as Becca, Niamh McCormack as Alison, Vivienne Acheampong as Mia's mum Viv, Alex Hassell as Mia's dad Rick and Sam Reuben as Mia's brother Alex, with Stephen Fry taking the role of Dr Nell.
Wilde is known as the breakout star of Australian sensation horror Talk To Me, which premiered earlier this year at Sundance Film Festival and has already been confirmed for a sequel.
Directed by YouTubers and filmmaking duo Danny and Michael Philippou, the movie follows Wilde's protagonist (who's also called Mia) as she discovers a way to contact the dead. Using an embalmed hand to talk to her mum, Mia unwittingly unleashes demonic forces onto the world, endangering her loved ones.
A box-office success — it's A24's highest-grossing horror film in the US — the movie also stars Lord of the Rings' Miranda Otto, Zoe Terakes, Alexandra Jensen, Joe Bird, Otis Dhanji, Chris Alosio, Marcus Johnson, and Alexandria Steffensen.
Everything Now premieres on Netflix on October 5.
