Oh Thank Goodness, Grizz From The Society Finally Got An Instagram

There's so much to love about Netflix's new Lord of the Flies -esque drama The Society, from the allegories to the major social issues within modern day America to reigning queen of summer Kathryn Newton's nuanced portrayal of inadvertent leader Allie. However, The Society would be absolutely nothing without its shining star Grizz, played by Jack Mulhern, who just made all his new stans' day by getting an Instagram.

Look, there are many reasons to love Grizz. For one thing, unlike many of the young men on The Society, he's one of the few not in the death grip of toxic masculinity. He's downright thoughtful, learning sign language in order to communicate with crush Sam (Sean Berdy), who is deaf. (Yes, technically he did study British Sign Language by accident, but it's the thought that counts! Sam and Grizz are my parents.) He's also one of the few people who could save this entire town from starvation, thanks to his farming skills and ability to keep everyone alive during a trek through the woods to find fertile soil.

Then there's Grizz's aesthetic. He looks like a reincarnated teen heartthrob from the '90s. He's basically the only person I want in the Hocus Pocus remake, as he is the worthy successor to Omri Katz's Max by hair alone. He looks like he stepped out of an REI catalog.

Then there's Mulhern IRL, who, thus far, has kept his internet presence minimal — until now. His first post proves that he's not super used to the spotlight yet, as it's not even of his entire face.

"Hey," writes Mulhern in his very first caption.

Comments range from "I'm in love" to "Omg it’s about time I’ve been waiting since Friday." (As a reminder, Friday was...four days ago. But we're eager!)

Sorry, ‘Friends’ fans: WarnerMedia has decided to pull its shows from Netflix

At a conference in Boston on Tuesday, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson just confirmed what many Netflix fans have long feared -- that the streaming giant may eventually lose some of the most popular third-party shows that it licenses, like Friends, ER, and The Office. Stephenson's company is poised to launch a Netflix rival of its own sometime this year, and he confirmed today that the plan is for parent company AT&T to bring back shows it licenses out, like Friends, to offer exclusively on its own streaming platform. “We are going to have to take a lot of the great content we own that’s been licensed elsewhere and bring that back into the fold,” Stephenson said at the conference, as reported by The Dallas News. From AT&T's perspective, the decision to pull what its executives have described in the past as its "crown jewel" shows from various streaming platforms and bring them onto its own offering is a no-brainer. Stephenson pointed out today, for example, that Warner Bros.'s inventory of TV properties includes some of the most successful shows of all time, including Friends, Seinfeld, and The Big Bang Theory. Some of Netflix's most-watched shows include Friends and The Office, according to data from third-party analytics firms, which presumably means a move like this threatens a chunk of Netflix viewership. A recent report from The Wall Street Journal noted that licensed content from studios like WarnerMedia “made up 72% of the minutes people spent watching Netflix as of October, according to the Nielsen data.” Netflix pushed back on that report, however, noting that it's apples-and-oranges to compare the streamer's licensed content with its original series since many of the latter only run for a couple of seasons or so. While The Office, for example, has nine seasons available to stream. When WarnerMedia's service launches this year, meanwhile, HBO content will anchor the offering and be complemented by shows and movies from Warner Bros. and Turner Networks. "This will become a significant driver of our growth over the next few years," AT&T's CEO said Tuesday, about the company's forthcoming streaming platform -- for which a monthly subscription price, as of yet, has not been announced.
