If you were really caught up in the chaos of the holidays, you may have missed out on a dark, chilling YA adaptation that just hit cable TV!
Dare Me, based on the popular novel by Megan Abbott, premiered on the USA Network on Sunday, December 29th. With a Gone Girl meets Euphoria vibe, the show follows two best friends and fellow cheerleaders whose world is rocked in devious ways by their new coach.
The book and show definitely have some dark undertones, setting up a thriller that asks audiences to decide who to root for when there’s no clear good guy. The end of episode one found Beth getting some major leverage on her new coach, Colette. The trailer for episode 2, “Mutually Assured Destruction,” shows her playing up that angle. It also teases more info about the blood on Beth’s hands as we see much more blood seeping across a floor.
Check out the teaser at the top of the page.
“Mutually Assured Destruction” airs on Sunday, January 5th.
