Disney has acquired the US distribution rights of the British comedy-drama “Almost Never”, which follows the boy band “The Wonderland” as the brief spell of fame they enjoyed on the talent show starts to fade. It charts their comedic ups and downs as they try to grow their fan base and find the best songs to record. As the boys try to make it in the music business, they also have to juggle home life, school and relationships alongside their dreams of pop stardom.
“The Wonderland” is played by Oakley Orchard, Harry Sill and Nathaniel Dass. Girls Here First are Mya-Lecia Naylor, Miriam Nyarko, Lola Moxom and Lilly Stanton.
Disney will be releasing the first six episodes from the first season on the Disney Channel on September 4th. With another seven episodes to air the following day. With episodes running on repeat Monday through Thursdays. No details have been announced on if the series will also be released on Disney+.
Originally, the CBBC ordered the series and was released in 2019, with two more seasons airing in 2020 and 2021. All three seasons are currently available on the BBC’s Player in the United Kingdom. Saltbeef Productions create the show, and Worldwide distributor Dynamic Television has already made deals for many countries, including CBC Gem (Canada) and ABC (Australia).
