The filming of Rebel Wilson‘s new Netflix movie Senior Year has finally come to an end, which means the countdown till it hits theatres is officially on!

During the course of the film, the Australian actress plays a cheerleader who attempts to reclaim her high-school life after being in a coma for more than 20 years. Interested in learning more?

Senior Year Plot Or Story

Taking place between 1997 and 2017, the film chronicles the story of Ruby, the most popular girl at her high school who wakes up after a 20-year coma to discover that she has missed out on the most important things in life.

Official Story reads: “She’s the captain of the cheerleading squad, dating the quarterback and is well on her way to becoming the prom queen. Girls want to be her and guys want to be with her. She has it all — until she falls off the top of the cheerleading pyramid and goes into a coma.

Senior Year

“Fast forward 20 years later and Ruby finally wakes up from her coma as a 37-year-old woman. She goes back to her high school and tries to assume her role as the star of her school. Most of all, she is still set on winning the crown as prom queen.”

Aside from that, Rebel has also been entertaining fans with some behind-the-scenes photos from the set of the film on her Instagram account, which may have given away some plot details! In one recent post, she appears to be getting ready for prom in a bubblegum pink gown, while another shows her wearing a bodysuit that appears to be similar in colour. Is it possible that a dance number is in store?

Alicia Silverstone and This Is Us actor Justin Hartley are among the many Hollywood luminaries who will be appearing in the cast of what will undoubtedly become a high-school comedy classic. For the time being, the specifics of their roles are being kept under wraps, but we can’t help but wonder if they will be playing Rebel’s character’s former high school best buddy and crush, respectively.

Senior Year

The teenage version of Rebel’s character is expected to be played by Angourie Rice, who most recently appeared on HBO’s Mare of Easttown and will be familiar to Rebel’s fans. According to a recent Instagram photo on Rebel’s profile, the two actors can be seen filming scenes outside of a high school building while wearing identical clothes to one another.

Also starring in the film are Sam Richardson, Zo Chao, Mary Holland, and Chris Parnell, who previously appeared on Saturday Night Live.

Senior Year Release Date

Netflix has scheduled the premiere of the film for May 13, 2022, as part of its original programming.
