'Now Apocalypse' directed by Greg Araki is an upcoming Starz show set to premiere on March 10. It is based on the life of four friends in Los Angeles who are trying to figure out their identity through their sexuality. The show gets a psychedelic treatment in the form of surreal dreams, a gun that shoots rainbow rays of light and the lead actor even has premonitions that he discusses with his friends.

Before the show premieres let's get caught up with the stars of the show.

1. Avan Jogia as Ulysses

Avan Jogia as Ulysses plays the lead role in the show and he tells us right away that his life is insane and one of the reasons why happens to be his group of friends. He is in LA, loves to smoke pot, so much so that his friend Carly tells him to smoke 'a smidge less' before he goes to bed. He also ends up sleeping with random men that he meets online. 

2. Beau Mirchoff as Ford

Beau Mirchoff plays the role of Ford, a man in his twenties who aspires to become a screenwriter. He is not too smart but gets great offers thanks to his great looks. He is usually semi-naked, is in an open relationship with his girlfriend Severine. Ford is Uly's best friend and it was Ford who convinced Uly to come to LA. It is also noted that Uly's string of affairs with strange men is a result of his unrequited love for Ford.

3. Kelli Berglund as Carly

Kelli Berglund as Carly plays Uly's friend that he goes to, to discuss everything between sex and sneaking suspicion about premonitions. She cams for extra cash, thinks that sexual fluidity is a requirement if you are a millennial and is ready to experiment in bed, which usually turns out to be comical because of her inexperience. 

4. Roxane Mesquida as Severine

Roxane Mesquida as Severine is an interesting character and not much has been revealed about her. She is expected to play an undercover agent in the show and as Ford's girlfriend, she is uninterested in anything vanilla. She also believes that monogamy is society's way of controlling individuals and so, she enjoys setting her boyfriend up on different sex dates. 

5. Tyler Posey as Uly's Tinder date

Tyler Posey's character has singlehandedly got fans on Twitter going crazy over the show. He plays Uly's Tinder date in the show and the trailer featuring the two of them and their loud orgasm had fans wondering what the two are up to in Gregg Araki's show. Tyler also shoots razor guns and is a part of trippy-looking 'end of the world' recurring dream that Uly has.
