Tyler Posey & Avan Jogia Playing Gay Couple In New Starz Series ‘Now Apocalypse’

Talk about a hot couple. YUMMY!!!

Now Apocalypse is an upcoming comedy set to premiere on Starz. Gregg Araki will co-write the series with Vogue.com sex columnist Karley Sciortino and direct all ten half-hour episodes. He’ll also executive produce along with Steven Soderbergh and Gregory Jacobs.

Araki is heavily associated with New Queer Cinema. Like several of his past projects (Kaboom, The Doom Generation), his latest will also feature LGBTQ characters.

According to Deadline, Now Apocalypse is a “coming-of-age comedy that follows Ulysses (Avan Jogia) and his friends Carly (Kelli Berglund), Ford (Beau Mirchoff) and Severine (Roxane Mesquida), who are on various quests pursing love, sex and fame while navigating the strange and oftentimes bewildering city of Los Angeles.”

Tyler Posey is also set to appear. He’ll play “an incredibly charismatic and mysterious guy Ulysses matches with on a dating app. During their highly anticipated first date, they can hardly contain themselves.” Can’t wait to see what they can’t contain 😉

    So tired of straight guys playing gay. There’s plenty out gay actors to use. Y we can’t tell our own stories?! It’s always either one of the two is straight or both of em. God forbid it b ‘Too Real’ for tv. Smh.

    plenty of gay guys play straight roles. as long as they play it well, why not? it’s called acting after all 😉

    Yeah that’s because there’s 100 times more straight parts than gay. If they didn’t play straight they wouldn’t work at all. Lol. My thing is there’s only a handful of gay roles. I’d rather see us play us. I was Devastated finding out that 90% of the cast of Queer As Folk was straight. It totally ruins the fantasy. Case in point, I loved Love Simon but the whole time I was wishing he was gay fr. Only we kno wats it’s like to b a closeted in high school. Some things u can’t imagine u have to live thru it to get it.
