Its setting is the hipster neighbourhood Grünerløkka in Oslo, where three young women live on the brink of "real" adulthood. These three characters are played by Jenny Skavlan (boyfriend: Nils Jørgen Kaalstad), Kjersti Tveterås (boyfriend: Mattis Herman Nyquist) and Renate Reinsve. Tveterås' character also has a freeloading brother, played by Hans Olav Brenner. It was described as an urban version of Side om side.[1]

At the premiere, the series was given a dice throw of 3 in VG[2] and in Bergens Tidende;[3] 2 in Dagbladet,[1] and 1 in Dagsavisen. The latter criticized it for "artificial" and "construed" humour, but also its complete lack of nonwhite characters in Norway's multi-cultural capital Oslo.[4]

Three seasons of Nesten voksen were planned, but in April 2018 it was announced that they were scrapped.[5]
