There are a total of 8 episodes in the first season. And it’s highly anticipated that the season 2 will be of the same length.

Payton is a student who thinks that he is going to be the president one day. He starts his political career at school, by running for student body president. His rich background makes him believe that he can pay his companions to vote for him over his ex, River, who is also running.

Payton is gay. He agonizes about how his sexuality may affect his career ambitions. Two suicide attempts have taken place during the series. First River who sadly dies, then Payton’s dad tries to kill himself after knowing that his wife loves a woman, but he eventually survives. Payton sees highs and lows, from being unquestionably welcome at Harvard to then losing his offer, plus winning the election but then being strained to resign.

The series concludes after a three year jump. Payton is at New York University and focusing to make his first step back into politics by running for State Senate.
