Definitely Recommend!

My daughter begged me to watch it after she found out the two main characters were in her favorite movie “IT”. We binged the series in a couple of days and absolutely LOVED it! The show has sex references and a lot of cursing but if your child has been educated on sex, drugs, etc. then they should be fine. The series definitely supports LGBTQ+ which is a great message to put out there. It also supports being yourself and knowing that everyone is weird sometimes and that it’s going to be okay. There is no on screen sex but there is kissing throughout the series. There is one gore scene at the end of the series but it is very mild and anyone 12+ should be able to handle it. If you have a mature 12 year old then I definitely recommend watching this and I believe my daughter has benefited from watching this show. I hope this review helped (:

one of my favorite shows right now !! so sad it got cancelled, i hope they take it back or another network produces it. there is a lot of language. lots of f**ks spoken by teens. there is kissing but no on screen sex, a girl kisses a boy and then later she kisses a girl. the teenagers smoke weed. a character is mentioned to be a drug dealer for comedic purposes. it only gets violent until the last episode of the whole show :( i love this so much
