Here's the Trailer for Netflix's New Portland–Filmed Series About Teenage Shoplifters

In Trinkets, three high school students bond over their shared addiction to stealing.

Just two weeks after ABC debuted its first trailer for Stumptown, another Portland-set series has unveiled new footage. This time it's Trinkets, a new Portland-filmed, Portland-set Netflix show about three teenage girls brought together by their shared addiction to stealing. It's adapted from Kirsten Smith's young-adult novel of the same name, which is also set in the area. (Fun fact: Smith, who's from Washington state, also co-wrote the screenplay for 10 Things I Hate About You.)

In the trailer, the trio—played by Brianna Hildebrand of Deadpool, Kiana Madeira, and Quintessa Swindell—come together at mandated Shoplifters Anonymous meetings. Per the super-short teaser, they proceed to compete for the best haul at Portland shop Mercantile (the façade of the First Congregational United Church of Christ also makes a brief appearance), steal booze and lighters, engage in performative vomiting when stopped by security guards, and bond over feelings of loneliness and not fitting in. There's also some clinking of wine glasses, some smashing of windows, and some impassioned smooching.

(Netflix really has a thing for Portland-area teenagers—February 2018 brought Everything Sucks!, about '90s-era kids at Boring High School, and season 2 of American Vandal was shot in and around Portland.)

All 10 episodes of Trinkets drop June 14.
