Movie star KJ is about to get that Netflix glo-up.

Prepare yourselves for DOUBLE the amount of KJ Apa's face on Netflix because the streaming service just managed to secure the rights to his brand new movie, The Last Summer.

Back in January, the Riverdale star was cast in the romantic comedy alongside a huge ensemble cast of young Hollywood actors including Maia Mitchell (The Fosters), Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), Jacob Latimore and Sosie Bacon, who you'll know as Skye in 13 Reasons Why. Halston Sage (Paper Towns), Gage Golightly (Red Oaks), Wolfgang Novogratz (Grown-ish), Jacob McCarthy (A.P. Bio), Mario Revolori (Sierra Burgess is a Loser), and Gabrielle Anwar (Burn Notice) also star in the movie.

The romcom follows a group of teenagers in Chicago, who find themselves having to navigate relationships with family and friends over summer before moving on to college and adulthood.

Filming began in Cleveland, Ohio in May. Maia Mitchell has been sharing behind the scenes snaps on her Insta story and fans have managed to spot the cast filming on the street.

The film will drop on Netflix at some point in 2019. But if you can't wait until then, you can catch KJ in The Hate U Give alongside Amandla Stenberg in October 2018 and of course, Riverdale season 3 which will also drop in October 2018.
