College is a time full of questions. What should I major in? Who do I want to be in my new adult life? Which group of butts looks more welcoming?
The first trailer for Mindy Kaling’s young-adult campus-set sex comedy-drama delivers exactly what you’d expect from that description: Cheeky banter, pop culture references, awkward moments, sorority girls called Ashlee/leigh/leye, and cool ladies looking after each other as they work out exactly what they want from the buffet of buff babes available to them at the prestigious (and fictional) Essex College.
The series stars Pauline Chalamet (yes, of those Chalamets) as timid and nerdy Kimberley; Amrit Kaur, Reneé Rapp, and Alyah Chanelle Scott as her freshman year roomies Bela, Leighton, and Whitney; and Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina’s Gavin Leatherwood as — I’m sorry I didn’t catch his name because he had his shirt off. Which I believe is the point. Cheers, Mindy.
The first two episodes of The Sex Lives Of College Girls premiere on HBO Max on Nov. 18.
