There are few parts of life that come with more uncertainty, awkwardness, freedom, and triumph than being a girl in her freshman year of college. Through living with people you’ve never met before and navigating the fact that there’s an entire world outside of your comfort zone, it’s a time of triumph that comes with so much more to discover alongside. Mindy Kaling’s new HBO show depicts all of these struggles in such a lighthearted and hillarious way, that sums up the ever present message; it’s okay to have sex. The importance of this show is not lost on viewers, even through the hilarious plot lines and the charm that all of the characters carry within themselves. Starring Pauline Chalamet as Kimberly, Reneé Rapp as Leighton, Alyah Chanelle Scott as Whitney, and Amrit Kuar as Bela, the show centers around a group of four randomly assigned roommates that the incredibly prestigious Essex College. Each in their own little words, tje girls go on their own journeys throughout the course of tje series, and in turn they learn a whole lot about themselves. The girls could not be more different, and nothing that they envisioned about their college experience is going to plan, but Kaling (in partnership with writer Justin Noble) creates an incredible sense of both entertainment and relatability within their experiences. We had the brilliant opportunity to sit down with Mindy, Justin and the cast and talk all about the series, check out the full conversation below!
