Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble go back to school for this acclaimed teen comedy-drama on HBO Max. Kimberly, Bela, Leighton, and Whitney are freshman at the fictional Essex College in Vermont, and together they need to survive four years of school, with all the ups, downs, and drama that entails. And, ideally, they’ll get laid, too.

Pauline Chalamet, Amrit Kauyr, Reneé Rapp, and Alyah Chanelle Scott star as the main foursome of college girls.
