It only lasts nine episodes for Netflix Great army to completely captivate you, but once it's over you will be hungry for more. The drama, which premiered on the streaming site October 16, follows a group of New York City teenagers attending the competitive Brooklyn public high school known as the Grand Army. The first season explores systemic racism, sexual assault, international adoption, sexuality, feminism, and more as students struggle to thrive, survive, and control their futures in an ever-changing world.
Loose based on Bitch: the game, written by showrunner and theater educator Katie Cappiello, Great army reminds of shows like euphoria and Degrassiand delve deep into the world of the new generation and all the ways in which they can hurt themselves and each other when trying to understand the world around them. In the last episodes of the season we see how students fight against racism in school. Dominique (Odley Jean) reaches out to her family and asks John (Alphonso Romero Jones II) for a prom, Joey Del Marco (Odessa) A & # 39; zion) finds a moment of peace after her sexual assault, Leila (Amalia Yoo) orchestrates a bombshell, Siddhartha (Amir Bageria) gets his acceptance at Harvard and acts on his feelings for Victor (August Blanco Rosenstein) and Tim (Thelonius Serrell-Freed) reveals that he lied to the police and that Luke (Brian Altemus) and George (Anthony Ippolito) are guilty of raping Joey.
With so many loose threads left, we're definitely looking for more episodes. How will the school react to Leila's fake bomb threat if exposed? Will Tim admit to the police that he lied about Joey's sexual assault? Will Dominque's family get back on their feet after their obstacles? And will Sid and Victor be able to love each other in public ?! Netflix hasn't renewed the series for a second season yet, but we have way too many questions for it not to. Your move, Netflix!
