Youth and sexuality are on a collision course in the official trailer for HBO Max’s upcoming series Generation.

The Lena Dunham-produced series will premiere Thursday, March 11 with three episodes (wrapping up its first eight-episode half on April 1; the season’s second part will drop later this year) and follows “a diverse group of high school students whose exploration of modern sexuality (devices and all) tests deeply entrenched beliefs about life, love and the nature of family in their conservative community,” according to the official description.

In the trailer (embedded below), Chester, a fashionable star water polo player, tells his new guidance counselor: “I’m, like, a lot,” while we catch glimpses of the high school happenings surrounding him and his friends. While another character hides his bisexuality from his parents, Arianna tells her class that her parents are gay and are considering bringing a third into their relationship.
