TORONTO (March 22, 2019) Crave announced today that the full 10-episode season of the exhilarating and critically acclaimed new STARZ Original Series NOW APOCALYPSE, an Official Selection of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival and CANNESERIES Festival 2019, is now available to binge-watch on the Crave app with the STARZ add-on. The series premiere episode is also available to watch in its entirety online on the STARZ YouTube channel. NOW APOCALYPSE is created and executive produced by iconic Indie filmmaker Gregg Araki (Kaboom, Mysterious Skin). Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh (Logan Lucky, The Laundromat) and Emmy Award®-winning producer Gregory Jacobs (The Laundromat, Magic Mike XXL) also serve as executive producers. Araki directed all 10 episodes and co-wrote the series with author and Vogue.com sex columnist Karley Sciortino, who is also the creator and host of SLUTEVER which also streams only on Crave. Sciortino also serves as consulting producer. The series stars Avan Jogia (Tut) as Ulysses, who is struggling to figure out his life in the surreal and bewildering city of Los Angeles. Kelli Berglund (Lab Rats) stars as Carly, Beau Mirchoff (AWKWARD) as Ford, and Roxane Mesquida (Kaboom) as Severine, all of whom are on quests pursuing love, sex and fame. Between sexual and romantic dating-app adventures, Ulysses grows increasingly troubled as foreboding, premonitory dreams make him wonder if some kind of dark and monstrous conspiracy is going on — or if he is just smoking too much weed. New episodes of NOW APOCALYPSE continue to premiere weekly, Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on the STARZ linear channel. How to get STARZ in Canada:
  • On two linear channels and the on demand platforms of participating television providers.
