Netflix has debuted the first trailer for The Last Summer and it looks like a dreamy, dramatic romance just in time for the forthcoming summer. The film follows a group of recent high school grads, enjoying their last summer before they take off for college, leaving behind the loves of their youth, finding new friendships and relationships, and redefining themselves as they cross the threshold into adulthood.
The young and incredible cast includes Riverdale star KJ Apa as Griffin and Maia Mitchell as Phoebe. These two seem to be caught in a beautiful romance story, while Alec (Jacob Latimore) and Erin (Halston Sage) struggle with maintaining their friendship after their breakup. Check out KJ’s Instagram post announcing the upcoming film.
Of course, the trailer doesn’t give much away like every trailer these days, but there’s a couple of things you might catch, such as Griffin obviously loves music, but he’s going to school for business because it’s the practical thing to do, and Phoebe keeps pushing him to follow this dreams.
Also, Erin has a lil’ fling with an LA Cubs baseballer, played by none other than Tyler Posey, much to Alec’s chagrin. Another thing you might notice, if you are a Riverdale’s fan, is that we got KJ Apa with brown hair! The film premieres May 3 on Netflix.
Last year, the streaming service helped revitalise the rom-com genre with their clever and wildly successful “Summer of Love” which included hits like Set It Up and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. In addition to The Last Summer, Netflix also has The Perfect Date with To All the Boys breakout Noah Centineo, and the Riverdale‘s Camila Mendes. So save the date and watch the trailer below.
