Nothing in the entire world would want to make us return to our high school ever, but wait….Rebel Wilson’s new rom-com might. Senior year is all set for the debut in the rom-com industry winning our hearts with the trailer already.
The forthcoming comedy “Senior Year,” which follows in the footsteps of “Never Been Kissed,” “Billy Madison,” “Hiding Out,” “Strangers with Candy,” and “21 Jump Street,” revolves around the senior year of an adult woman returning to her high school years, but there’s one major difference. Because she’s been in a coma for the last 20 years, Rebel Wilson’s character in senior year lacks the knowledge and experience of the actors of the prior aforementioned films. She may appear to be 37 years old, but she considers herself to be an adolescent. It’s a smart take on a familiar cliche, so here’s everything you need to know about “Senior Year” before you go see it.
When will “Senior Year” be set to release?
Netflix has picked up the romantic comedy “Senior Year,” which will premiere on Saturday, May 14, 2022. The Babysitter films, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, Yes, God, Yes, He’s All That, Candy Jar, Banana Split, Alex Strangelove, The Kissing Booth trilogy, See You Yesterday, trilogy, There’s Someone Inside Your House, and Moxie, to name a few, senior year join their already impressive roster of teen fare.
The storyline and the plot of “Senior Year”
Rebel Wilson’s Senior Year is the latest addition to Netflix’s rom-com lineup for 2022. Wilson had taken a sabbatical from acting in 2020 to focus on her health, and she is also producing the senior year with Todd Garner and Chris Bender. After waking up from a 20-year coma, a cheerleader strives to recapture her high school life. In May 2022, Netflix will release Senior Year.
Alex Hardcastle (Grace and Frankie, Love, Simon) is directing senior year, while Brandon Scott Jones is writing the screenplay, which is based on Andrew Knauer and Arthur Pielli’s concert film. For the first time, Hardcastle, who is known for directing episodes of the TV shows Parks and Recreation, Grace and Frankie, and The Office, will be directing a feature picture.
In senior year high school, Ruby was the most popular girl in 1997. She was the cheering squad’s captain, dating the football team’s quarterback, and on her way to becoming prom queen. Ruby appears to have everything she could ever want, but she ends up in a coma after falling from the top of a cheerleading pyramid. Ruby recovers from her coma 20 years later as a 37-year-old woman. Rather than adjusting to her new life as an adult, she returns to high school to finish what she started, seeking to restore her queen bee title and eventually become prom queen. Yeah, I guess. This style of comedy appeals to me much.
According to the official synopsis of the senior year, “she’s the captain of the cheerleading team, dating the quarterback, and on her way to becoming prom queen.” Men strive to be with her as much as girls aspire to be like her. She seemed to have senior year all until she collapses from the top of the cheerleading pyramid and enters a coma.
“Fast forward 20 years and Ruby is now a 37-year-old woman, having awoken from her coma. She returns to her senior year in high school and tries to recover her place as the school’s leading lady. Above all, she is still dead set on being prom queen.”
Production of the “Senior Year”
Alicia Silverstone joined the cast for senior year in June 2021. Jade Bender, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Michael Cimino, Avantika, Joshua Colley, Molly Brown, Ana Yi Puig, Zaire Adams, and Tyler Barnhardt join the cast in July 2021.
On May 24, 2021, during the COVID-19 outbreak, principal photography began in Atlanta. Filming of the senior year has ended as of July 2021.

Alex Hardcastle (“Grace and Frankie,” “Love, Simon”) is directing his debut feature film, “Senior Year.” Hardcastle has directed comedy series such as “Parks & Recreation” and “The Office,” so it’ll be fascinating to see how he handles the feature-length version.
