The first teaser for the upcoming Netflix series “The Society” might make parents think twice about leaving their teenage children home alone.
Described as a modern take on “Lord of the Flies,” the series follows a group of teenagers who are mysteriously transported to a place identical to their wealthy New England town — but their parents are nowhere to be found.
“Mom, it’s me again. Where is everyone?” a teenage girl asks as she leaves her unresponsive mother a voicemail as Billie Eilish’s “Bury a Friend” plays in the background.
Per Netflix, “The Society” follows a group of teenagers who are mysteriously transported to a facsimile of their wealthy New England town without any trace of their parents.

As they struggle to figure out what has happened to them and how to get home, they must establish order and form alliances if they want to survive.
The cast includes Rachel Keller, Kathryn Newton, Alex Fitzalan, Kristine Froseth, Jacques Colimon, Sean Berdy, Toby Wallace, Gideon Adlon, Olivia DeJonge, Alex MacNicoll, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jose Julian, Salena Qureshi, Jack Mulhern and Grace Victoria Cox.
