Netflix continues to lay its claim on the reality space with the new trailer for the Austin, TX-set reality series, Roaring Twenties.
The series follows eight twenty-somethings. Here’s the official description:
In this new reality series, eight twenty-somethings set out to find success in life and love in Austin, Texas while learning to navigate the ‘new normal’ of 2020’s America. Living together and leaning on each other, they experience the highs and lows that come with being an adult. After all, your twenties are a crazy, weird, and special time in your life, and you only get to live them once.
Watch the trailer and learn about the cast below:
Age 25 / Houston, TX / Unemployed
Abbey is ready for a major shake up. When she was 20, she married her high-school sweetheart, and at 25, she’s just coming out of a divorce..and exploring her bisexuality. She doesn’t want anything serious, but has a hard time not catching feelings when she likes someone. She has no idea who she is or what she wants to do with her life, but she knows she’s ready to shed the “handcuffs” of her marriage and conservative upbringing and get into some trouble in Austin!
Age 25 / Maitland, FL / IT Tech
Raquel is driven, motivated, and one of few black women who works in IT. She wants to immerse herself in the thriving tech scene in Austin in hopes to make connections to grow the success of the startup she works for. She loves old-fashioneds, playing the stock market and roller skating, but you’ll never catch her barefoot unless she’s in the pool – she has a phobia of her uncovered feet touching the ground!
Age 23 / Greenville, SC / Sales For Dad’s Insurance Company
Bruce’s winning smile makes hearts melt. He loves baseball and dreams of a career working with a professional sports team. It’s always a party when Bruce is around – he lives by the motto “LET’S GOOO!” Bruce is hoping to find the girl of his dreams in Austin and start a serious relationship. He’s a good corn-fed, responsible guy who respects women and loves ice cream…maybe a little too much.
Age 26 / Miami, FL / Unemployed
Natalie has never had a boyfriend. She grew up in a strict Latin household with cameras inside the house monitoring her every move, and her dad wouldn’t even allow her to hug boys unless she covered her chest! She is boldly extroverted yet adorably charming, and is making it her mission to do whatever it takes to get herself boo’d up in Austin, one awkward first date at a time!
Age 23 / North Carolina / Model
Kamari has many passions. While currently making money as a male model, he’s got several entrepreneurial ideas in the works but can’t seem to focus on any of them! He loves Southern accents and hopes to find a fiery Texan woman to settle down with…eventually. For the next few months in Austin, he wants to play the field, hit the gym, and manifest his destiny…whatever it may be.
Age 28 / Fayetteville, AR / Coordinator for Residence Education
Keauno is like a puppy everyone immediately falls in love with – but he’s never been kissed! He is a second-generation American and the first in his family to graduate from college. At age 25, Keauno came out as gay after struggling to acccept himself his whole life due to his conservative surroundings and Catholic upbringing. Keauno is leaving Arkansas behind as he hopes to find his ‘gay sensei’ in the very LGBTQ+-friendly community in Austin, and maybe a boyfriend to boot!
Age 24 / Irvine, CA / Fashion Designer
One might never peg Isha, a self-proclaimed ‘educated ditz’ who until recently thought Miami was in Maine rather than Florida (“they both start with ‘M’s!”), as a graduate of UC Berkeley’s economics program. Isha is clumsy, gullible, and forgetful, but she knows it, and owns it. After struggling with depression, she realized she needed to follow her passion, and started designing clothes. She now dreams of launching her fashion line, Hut Mentality, and getting her artisanal pieces picked up by a retail boutique in Austin.
Age 23 / Austin, TX / Aspiring Stand-Up Comedian
Michael recently chucked life in LA and moved to Austin to pursue stand-up comedy…with absolutely zero training or experience. Unafraid to bomb night after night, he’s chasing this dream wherever it takes him, even if it’s to a place of failure and being forced to give it up and make a change. Michael desperately wants to find a girlfriend. He’s attracted to ‘weirdos,’ which makes Austin the perfect place to pursue his goals!
