The film starred Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, and Mare Winningham as a group of friends who had just graduated from Georgetown University and their adjustment to adulthood

St. Elmo’s Fire: The Series will pick up where the movie left off, introducing six new characters. Washington’s ritzy Georgetown neighborhood and the St. Elmo’s Bar & Restaurant, now called St. Elmo’s Bar & Grill, where the friends hang out, will remain the central settings.
