HBO Max's upcoming feature 'Unpregnant' might look a lot like the heartwarming 'Never Rarely Sometimes Always' but with a heavy dose of fun, adventure and madness. 

When high-school student Veronica finds out that she is pregnant, she is left feeling helpless. The closest abortion clinic is miles away but how is she going to get there? Unable to find help anywhere, Veronica reaches out to her ex-best friend Bailey for help. Going by the looks of the trailer, the two have long lost the connection they used to once share and are estranged now. Only, this time, they will be reconnecting for a lifetime. 

HBO Max's feature is an adaptation of Ted Caplan and Jenni Hendricks's book, who write the screenplay of the movie with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, William Parker and Goldenberg.

Before the movie arrives on September 10, 2020, on HBO Max, meet the cast.

Haley plays the role of Veronica, a Type A student who has only just found out that she is pregnant. Getting an abortion is not easy but the nearest clinic is far away. She then enlists the help of her once best friend Bailey. 

The actress received a lot of recognition for her role in the critically acclaimed coming-of-age film 'The Edge of Seventeen' and for 'Split'. For her performance in 'Columbus', she was nominated for the Gotham Independent Film Award for Best Actress. Her work in the romantic drama 'Five Feet Apart' is a top favorite among fans of the actress.

But Haley has been around for a while with early television roles on the Disney Channel's 'Shake It Up' and ABC's 'Ravenswood'. 

Barbie Ferreira as Bailey

Ferreira plays the role of Bailey, Veronica's best friend from a forever ago. The two have lost the connection they used to share and can barely be tagged friends. When Veronica approaches her for help during this time of crisis, the two embark on a journey that brings them together again.

The actress rose to fame with her role as Kat Hernandez in the HBO's 'Euphoria'. Before acting, Ferreira used to be a plus-sized model for American Apparel, H&M, Aerie, Target, Adidas, Missguided, Asos, and Forever 21. In 2016, unretouched photos and a video interview from Ferreira's Aerie campaign went viral so much so that Time named her among 2016's 30 Most Influential Teens'. 

Giancarlo Esposito

The role that the veteran actor plays is not credited yet, but the trailer shows that he helps Bailey and Veronica when they go knocking on his door seeking assistance.  

The actor is best known for playing the role of Gus Fring in the AMC's 'Breaking Bad' and 'Better Call Saul', a performance for which he won a Critics' Choice Television Award and earned three nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. He is also known for his work on 'Homicide: Life on the Street', Sidney Glass/ Magic Mirror in ABC's 'Once Upon a Time', Tom Neville in 'Revolution', Dr Edward Ruskins in the Netflix comedy-drama series 'Dear White People', and Moff Gideon in 'The Mandalorian', a role which earned him a Primetime Emmy Award nomination.

Ramona Young, Sugar Lyn Beard, Breckin Meyer, Betty Who and Mary McCormack round out the rest of the supporting cast.
