Produced by Amazon Studios and Plan B Entertainment, High School is a story about finding your own identity—a journey made even more complicated when you have a twin whose own struggle and self-discovery so closely mimic your own. Told through a backdrop of ‘90s grunge and rave culture, the series weaved between parallel and discordant memories of twin sisters growing up down the hall from one another.

The series starred TikTok creators Railey and Seazynn Gilliland in their TV debut as the high school versions of Tegan and Sara, respectively. Special guest stars Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) and Kyle Bornheimer (Marriage Story) played the twins’ parents, Simone Bates and Patrick Twiley. Esther McGregor also was a series regular as Natalie.

The cast also included Olivia Rouyre as Phoebe, Amanda Fix as Maya, Brianne Tju (I Know What You Did Last Summer) as Ali, Geena Meszaros (Under the Banner of Heaven) as Lily, CJ Valleroy (NCIS: Los Angeles) as Evan, and Nate Corddry (For All Mankind) as David.

High School was executive produced by Clea DuVall, Tegan and Sara Quin, Laura Kittrell, and Plan B’s Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, and Carina Sposato. DuVall and Kittrell also served as co-showrunners and co-writers. DuVall directed several episodes.

The Hollywood Reporter was first to report the cancellation.
