DARE ME Adaptation Gets First Trailer, Release Date

Prepare for some Euphoria meets Bring It On vibes: The first trailer for the television show based on Megan Abbott‘s bestseller Dare Me is here!

The novel follows best friends Addy Hanlon and Beth Cassidy (Herizen Guardiola and Marlo Kelly, respectively) who rule over their hyper-competitive high school cheerleading squad until their routine is upset by an interesting, young new coach named Collette French (Willa Fitzgerald). As Beth and Collette begin to wage war on each other, the carefully wrapped secrets of the squad and the community around them begin to unravel.

When tragedy strikes and the local police start investigating the squad, Addy makes it her mission to discover the truth. But loyal as she is, does she really want to know?

Despite that Euphoria feel, Dare Me existed long before the HBO hit– it was published back in 2012 and has been in development pretty much ever since, though it’s fair to say that the success of the former show probably influenced the production of the latter.

The trailer also revealed a major detail: The series premiere date!

Dare Me is coming to USA Network on December 29, 2019.

In the meantime, check out the novel via Amazon!
