Senior Year Cast & Character Guide | Screen Rant

Senior Year cast and character guide. Directed by Alex Hardcastle from a screenplay by Andrew Knauer, Arthur Pielli, and Brandon Scott Jones, Senior Year is the latest Netflix comedy to release on the streaming service. Full of nostalgia, the film boasts a cast of well-known actors, including Rebel Wilson.

Senior Year is among several original offerings from Netflix in 2022, which will include Chris Evans’ The Gray Man and a Jane Austen adaptation of Persuasion starring Dakota Fanning. The comedy film is a callback to classics like Never Been Kissed and 13 Going on 30 — both movies that featured adults wanting to go back to high school or missing out on their present lives because they wanted to skip ahead to the future.
