Directed by and starring comedian Julio Torres, Fantasmas is billed as a “comedy experience,” and it boasts an incredible cast. The first trailer, released just days ago, revealed O’Brien in a particularly striking red ensemble that includes a silk robe, matching bra, knickers, and suspenders. This tantalizing preview has caused quite the stir online, especially among LGBTQ+ fans who have been swooning and creating a plethora of memes in response.

The show’s official synopsis remains mysterious, simply stating that it “follows Torres on the search for a golden oyster earring, and the people he encounters on the way.” However, the trailer gives us a sneak peek of these intriguing characters, including stars like Emma Stone, Steve Buscemi, Julia Fox, Kim Petras, Ziwe, Euphoria’s Alexa Demie, Fire Island’s Tomas Matos, SNL’s Aidy Bryant, and Wicked star Bowen Yang.

According to the latest buzz on X (formerly known as Twitter), Dylan O’Brien’s lingerie-clad appearance has overshadowed the entire trailer. O’Brien, who initially rose to fame alongside former OnlyFans creator Tyler Posey in Teen Wolf, appears near the midway mark of the trailer. His bold outfit choice has left fans in a frenzy. One user summed it up perfectly: “Don’t know what the hell this is but I’m watching.” Another fan humorously responded with a picture of Drag Race superstar Anetra, legs spread wide, captioning it, “Save me, Dylan O’Brien in red lingerie.” Yet another fan admitted, “My bad didn’t mean to moan that loud.”

The full synopsis of Fantasmas promises a fantastical six-part tale revolving around the loss of a golden oyster earring. Julio Torres’s journey to find this precious object leads him to encounter offbeat characters in introspective, often eerie, and always comedic vignettes. Set in a dreamy, alternate version of New York City, the series weaves together stories of people searching for meaning, purpose, and connection in an increasingly isolating world.

Fantasmas is set to premiere at the ATX Television Festival on May 30, and it will presumably be available on Max (HBO’s streaming service) shortly after. With its star-studded cast and the promise of Dylan O’Brien in red lingerie, this show is set to be an unmissable delight for the LGBTQ+ community and beyond. So, get ready to dive into the surreal and whimsical world of Fantasmas—it’s bound to be a ride you won’t want to miss.
