Netflix's new teen series I Am Not Okay With This teases a possible same-sex romance.

The new series – which is set to launch on the streaming giant from February 26 – stars It actor Sophia Lillis as Sydney, a 15-year-old who is dealing complexities of high school, family and her sexuality.

But at the same time, Sydney develops new superpowers – in a sort of Carrie-esque feeling.

And now, Netflix has released the first full trailer where we see Sydney at the beginning running through the street covered in blood – once again very Carrie-esque.

We also get introduced to the other characters including her best friend, Dina, who is dating ‘golden boy’ Bradley Lewis, as well as her neighbour Stanley Barber – played by fellow It co-star Wyatt Oleff.

The new trailer teases a romance between Sydney and Dina – played by Sofia Bryant – but we will have to wait until February 26 to see what will happen.

Based on the graphic novel from Charles Forsman, the new series is directed by Jonathan Entwistle, who worked another hit Netflix series End of the Fucking World.
