Rebel Wilson goes back to high school after waking up from a 20-year coma in Netflix's 'Senior Year'

Rebel Wilson is getting ready for high school again!

The 42-year-old actress stars in Netflix's upcoming comedy Senior Year as Stephanie Conway, a woman who wakes up from a 20-year coma after a devastating fall. Before her accident, her teenage self (played by Angourie Rice) was the cheerleading captain and the most popular girl in school.

Since she didn't get to finish her high school experience (and get crowned prom queen), the now-37-year-old Stephanie has her sights set on returning to high school to pick up where she left off.

But times have changed and the former cheerleader must get with the times. She must figure out who Lady Gaga is and navigate the world of social media.

Senior Year is Wilson's first movie in three years since her busy 2019 slate, which includes Isn't It Romantic, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Hustlers, Jojo Rabbit, and Cats.

The Aussie actress previously said that the upcoming movie is a "funny love child of Bring It On and Never Been Kissed."

Coming to Netflix on May 13, Senior Year also stars Jason Hartley, Marry Holland, Chris Parnell, and Alicia Silverstone.
