We're stuck to Netflix's teen survival drama The Society like Grizz to an inspirational quote. The 10-part series follows a group of privileged young people who are mysteriously transported to a replica of their wealthy New England town, West Ham, without any trace of their parents. Sure, it's a fun, curfew-free town at first, but before long, the restless teens begin to lose all control without any boundaries.

All that drama aside, we found ourselves pondering over the real ages of the impressive cast (remember in Gilmore Girls when Lane's Keiko Agena was supposed to be 16, but IRL she was actually 27?!) and whether or not they really are teens. Here are the ages of the stars below, and their Insta handles.
