What if kids ran the world? Most people have presumably experienced the euphoric feeling of a teacher stepping out of the room for a few minutes, or parents leaving the house for an evening. Those moments carry the promise that everything might be a lot more fun if there weren’t any adult authority figures around telling everyone what to do. But as the creepy trailer for Netflix’s new series The Society shows, a world without grown-ups isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
The thriller follows a group of teenagers in a wealthy New England town who one day find themselves transported to an identical facsimile where their parents are nowhere to be found. So, in true Lord of the Flies fashion, it’s up to them to establish order in their new society. But as the firing squad of boys in letterman jackets indicates, things are gonna get pretty ugly.
All 10 episodes of The Society will hit Netflix on May 10. Check out the trailer above.
