Tegan and Sara are just a pair of precocious girls navigating adolescence in the first teaser trailer for High School. Based on their memoir of the same name, the series will premiere October 14th on Amazon Freevee.
While many people view the singer-songwriters as an inseparable duo, the new teaser focuses on their glaring disagreements. “What happened to your eye?” a girl asks in the high school bathroom. “My sister punched me in the face,” comes the reply. When questioned if they’re twins, one says, “No,” as one says, “Yeah,” and later we hear the complaint, “We’ve had to share everything.”
But just because they squabble, that doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. Towards the end of the teaser, we see them pick up a guitar and write a song, singing together, “Tegan didn’t go to school today.”
High School stars Railey and Seazynn Gilliland as Tegan and Sara Quin. Cobie Smulders (The Avengers, How I Met Your Mother) and Kyle Bornheimer (Marriage Story, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) play the twins’ parents, and the cast is rounded out by Esther McGregor. Check out the preview below.
In more musical news, Tegan and Sara signed to Mom + Pop records earlier this year, announcing Crybaby and releasing “Fucking Up What Matters” and “Yellow,” which we named Song of the Week. You can catch them on tour starting in October and tickets are available here.
