Imagine going to a High School reunion and then stranded during the end of the world with a bunch of women you haven’t seen in a decade — that’s the premise of Prime Video’s Class of ’07.
From the first episode of this Aussie comedy series, you will be hooked, line and sinker by the talented cast of Aussies who become marooned on a remote island after a tidal wave hits.
It’s Lord of the Flies meets Netflix’ The Society (but make it Australian) and follows a group of past students who attend a reunion, only to be met with life-and-death stakes.
What is Class of ’07 about?
The official synopsis reads: “When Zoe Miller (Emily Browning) unknowingly stumbles upon her ten-year high school reunion in full swing, she throws herself into partying instead of warning her classmates of the impending apocalyptic wave outside.
“Now stranded with a group of pissed off women – including her estranged best friend Amelia (Megan Smart) – Zoe must work with her peers to find a way to live atop the newly formed island peak of their high school campus.
“This high concept comedy explores an inescapable, never-ending reunion where the greatest threat to survival isn’t the end of the world, but decade old drama.
The eight-part 30 min series is an “unapologetic love letter to female friendship, about two old friends finding their way back to each other. It just so happens that Zoe and Amelia are sorting their sh** out in the most absurd of settings: the apocalypse.”
