It only takes nine episodes for Netflix’s Grand Army to completely hook you, but once it’s over, you’ll be hungry for more. The drama, which premiered on the streaming site on Oct. 16, follows a group of New York City teenagers who attend the highly competitive public high school in Brooklyn known as Grand Army. The first season tackles systemic racism, sexual assault, international adoption, sexuality, feminism, and more as the students fight to succeed, survive, and control their future in an ever-changing world. Loosely based on Slut: The Play, written by showrunner and theater educator Katie Cappiello, Grand Army is reminiscent of shows like Euphoria and Degrassi, delving deep into the world of the new generation and all the ways they can hurt themselves and each other as they try to make sense of the world around them. In the final episodes of the season, we witness students stage a sit-in against in-school racism, Dominique reaches an understanding with her family and asks John to prom, Joey Del Marco finds a moment of peace after her sexual assault, Leila orchestrates a bomb scare, Siddhartha gets his acceptance to Harvard and acts on his feelings for Victor , and Tim reveals that he lied to the police and that Luke and George are guilty of raping Joey.
