Now that Teen Wolf has come to an end (and his movie career wasn’t exactly helped by the recent horror Truth or Dare), Tyler Posey has decided to head for the apocalypse. After playing recurring characters in Jane The Virgin and Scream: The Series, he’s getting a boyfriend in the upcoming TV series, Now Apocalypse.
Variety reports that the Steven Soderbergh produced show is ‘a surreal, coming-of-age comedy that follows Ulysses and his friends Carly, Ford and Severine, who are on various quests pursing love, sex and fame in Los Angeles. Between sexual and romantic dating app adventures, Ulysses grows increasingly troubled as foreboding premonitory dreams make him wonder if some kind of dark and monstrous conspiracy going on, or is he just smoking too much weed?
‘Posey will appear as Gabriel, described as an incredibly charismatic and mysterious guy that Ulysses matches with on a dating app. During their highly-anticipated first date, they can hardly contain themselves.’
Ulysses will be played by Avan Jogia, best known from Nickelodeon’s Victorious and for playing the title character in a mini-series about King Tut. It’s perhaps not too surprise that the show will have a queer lead character, as it was created by Gregg Araki, the filmmaker behind the likes of the LGBT-themed movies Mysterious Skin, Kaboom, and The Living End. The US TV network Starz has ordered a 10-episode first Season of the show, which is due to air later this year.
