The series debuts with two episodes back-to-back FRIDAY, AUG. 8 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, followed by single episodes on subsequent Fridays at the same. Lilley created, wrote and stars in the title role of the new show.
After being expelled from Summer Heights High, Jonah Takalua's father, Rocky, banished him to the island of Tongapatu to spend time with his extended family and get his life back together. But four months later, fed up with Jonah's antics, his uncle sends him back to Sydney to enroll in yet another school, the Holy Cross School. Once again, the always impressionable Jonah finds himself adapting to a new school and fending off new foes and other delinquents, all while trying to be a "good boy."
