Want some Lord of the Flies in your Riverdale? In this exciting sci-fi thriller, a virus wipes out all the parents, leaving teens to struggle for survival. The town of Potter’s Bluff divides into rich West Siders, led by dictator Jeremy (Munro Chambers, Degrassi: The Next Generation), versus working-class East Siders, whose most fearsome warriors are lovers Scratch (Paloma Kwiatkowski) and Nat (Madison Iseman, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle). It’s high-stakes teen trauma, with a body count.
