CHRIS KEYSER AND MARC WEBB'S NETFLIX YA DRAMA SERIES "THE SOCIETY" SETS CAST

SYNOPSIS:

The Society follows a group of teenagers who are mysteriously transported to a facsimile of their wealthy New England town, left without any trace of their parents. As they struggle to figure out what has happened to them and how to get home, they must establish order and form alliances if they want to survive. The series is a modern take on Lord of the Flies.

Chris Keyser (The Last Tycoon, Tyrant, Party of Five) will write and executive produce the series that will span 10 episodes, and Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man) will serve as director and executive producer.

It was previously announced that Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies, Lady Bird) will star as "Allie," who has lived her entire life in the shadow of her more remarkable older sister Cassandra. Whatever Allie's strengths are, she has very little sense of them. Allie inspires her sister to take charge of the group as they are thrust in to the mysterious new world.

FULL CAST:

Rachel Keller (Legion, Fargo) will play the role of "Cassandra." She's popular and the most impressive amongst her peers, and they all know it. A natural leader, she is the longtime rival of Harry. If she has one person she loves most in the world, it's her sister, Allie.

Gideon Adlon (Blockers, Mustang) will play "Becca," who is mature, tough and adventurous, yet always on the outside looking in. She's the daughter of a single, alcoholic mother and in order to keep the rest of the world at bay, she hides behind her camera, viewing the world with a reporter's eye.

Jacques Colimon (Duat) will play the role of "Will." Will is a foster kid and a true orphan. He's an outsider in West Ham who finds his natural social disadvantages disappearing in New Ham.

Olivia DeJonge (The Visit) has been cast as "Elle." A dancer, she is brittle from living in the obsessive, cruel world of dance. Her fear and uncertainty in this new world leaves her susceptible and vulnerable to those who don't have her best interest in mind. She will struggle to find her own self in this dangerous frontier. Whether she finds salvation or, like those to whom evil is done, comes to do evil in return, only time will tell.

Alex Fitzalan (Slenderman) will play "Harry." The epitome of privilege, he's handsome, wealthy, ambitious and, in almost every other way, entirely unremarkable. Harry finds himself the leader of the roughly half of the population that would choose to recreate, in the New World, an exact replica of the world they left behind.

Kristine Froseth (Sierra Burgess Is A Loser, Apostle) will play "Kelly," the Queen Bee of West Ham. She's smart and has a firm moral compass. But now that the rules have been rewritten, she may well take the opportunity to rewrite herself as well. In doing so, she finds herself torn between the old high school hierarchy and the new world order.

Jose Julian (A Better Life, Shameless) will play tech wiz "Gordie." Smart and grounded, he proves to be indispensable in the new world. He secretly pines for Cassandra. When he learns about her health issues, he vows to teach himself basic medicine so he's prepared should crisis strike.

Natasha Liu Bordizzo will play "Helena." All of her certainty - about her boyfriend Luke, about God - masks her deep-seated uncertainty. More confident in Luke's ability to lead the town than Luke himself, Helena finds herself stepping into that role in the face of conflict.

Alex MacNicoll (Transparent, Backseat) will play "Luke," the high school quarterback, and built like one. His girlfriend pushes him to be a leader, but he's much more content with being a supporter.

Jack Mulhern (Locke & Key) will play "Grizz," a jock with a poetic side. Incredibly smart, he becomes important to the power struggles and game of survival in the new world.

Salena Qureshi (Madam Secretary) will play "Bean."

Grace Victoria Cox (Heathers, Under The Dome) will play "Lexie." Quirky and slightly unpredictable, Lexie comes into her own in the political arena of New Ham.

Sean Berdy (Switched at Birth) and Toby Wallace (Romper Stomper) will play the roles of "Sam" and "Campbell," respectively. Sam and Campbell are brothers and cousins to Cassandra and Allie. Sam is sweet, sensitive, and funny. Born deaf, he is painfully aware of the unfair vicissitudes of fate. His brother, Campbell, is a sociopath, insecure and angry at the attention his brother's "difference" has stolen from him.
