Following hot on the heels of Sex Education season 4, a new Netflix teen series has landed.


The narrative follows Mia Polanco, a 16-year-old who is in recovery from an eating disorder and has just been released from hospital, as she is thrust straight back into sixth form.

However, Mia is gutted to realise that all of her friends are ahead of her, and she feels like she’s been left behind.

Desperate to tick off important teenage milestones, from partying to having sex, Mia assembles a "f**k it bucket list" in an effort to reclaim the time she's lost.

Everything Now might explore a delicate subject matter, but the writers worked hard to create a script which tackles the biggest misconceptions around eating disorders.
