Avan Jogia and Tyler Posey pairing in 'Now Apocalypse' sends the internet in a collective swoon
'Now Apocalypse' stars Avan Jogia in the lead role as Ulysses, while 'Teen Wolf' actor Tyler Posey plays his boyfriend in the STARZ show.
'Now Apocalypse' has the attention of people on the Internet not just because of its interesting concept in the genre of New Queer Cinema, but also because of its lead stars Avan Jogia and Tyler Posey. The two stars, who have a huge fan following on social media for their work and their red hot looks, are not only sharing screen space in their upcoming show but also playing boyfriends.
There are odes written about Avan's looks, his characters and his body of work so far on the internet that worships his ability to act, direct, write, edit and just plain exist.
Tyler Posey, on the other hand, has enjoyed fan attention since his 'Teen Wolf' days and has now become the star of many GIFs, memes and more because of 'Now Apocalypse'.
While the official casting announcement was made in June 2018, the trailer of the Starz's show was released quite recently. In the trailer, the two actors were seen getting all handsy, even as Jogia's Ulysses experiments with pot and premonitions.
Fans have also noticed how many times Jogia appears either shirtless or unbuttoned. The trailer even featured an explosive orgasm between the two characters. In a series where people believe that being millennial means sexual fluidity is a requirement, the interest surrounding the show and the relationship between the two lead characters is not surprising. People have been sharing GIFs of the scenes starring the two actors on Twitter, and whose interest has been piqued in the series purely because of Jogia, Posey or both.
Here are some fan reactions:

'Now Apocalypse' also stars Kelli Berglund, who plays the role of Ulysses' friend Carly. She does camming for extra cash, explores sex with different men and tells her friend to smoke a "wee bit less pot before bed" when he tells her about his premonitions.
The show, which is not really about the end of the world, but the end of the world as Ulysses knows, packs a lot of punch with its free-spirited, confused and unintentionally charming characters.
The show, written by 'Kaboom' writer Gregg Araki also has fans excited over the portrayal of LGBTQIA+ in the series. Some feel that the show could be quite similar to Araki's previous work, 'Kaboom', which was centred around the sexual awakening of college students, while others are just excited because of a nicely cut trailer and the good looking cast on the screen.
You can catch the show on STARZ from March 10.
