Netflix Cancels The 1996 Set Series Everything Sucks! The Cast and Producers React

I guess audiences just aren't into the 90s as much as Netflix thought. After only one season, the streaming service canceled the 90s set series Everything Sucks! and I'm kinda bummed out by that. I actually enjoyed the show and thought it was entertaining.

The series was created by Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan and the show followed two groups of high school misfits from the A/V club and a Drama club who join forces to make a movie in 1996 Oregon. There were also a few coming-of-age subplots involving the growing pains of being a young teenager in high school.

THR explained that the show "made waves within the Lgbt community but struggled to cut through to mass appeal despite a small group of loyal and vocal supporters. The series was particularly praised for its lesbian representation as it followed young Kate Messner's (Peyton Kennedy) coming-out process."

‘Everything Sucks!’ Review: Season 1 Is a Beautiful Coming Out Story Buried Under an Avalanche of ’90s Nostalgia

‘Everything Sucks!’ Review: Season 1 Is a Beautiful Coming Out Story Buried Under an Avalanche of ’90s Nostalgia
“Everything Sucks!” has a very simple problem that could — but likely won’t — be remedied should future seasons come to pass: It’s too obsessed with the ’90s. Filled with slap bracelets and Zima, “Beavis and Butthead” impressions and “Pulp Fiction” speeches, a soundtrack cribbed from “Now That’s What I Call Music” Vols. 33 – 37 and baggy clothes any grunge kid would’ve been proud to wear to a Nirvana concert, the Netflix original series manufactures too many moments solely to reference a decade only recently being mined for ‘member berries.

While that can work for plenty of period pieces — just look how well “Stranger Things” utilized its ’80s aesthetic — here it’s at the expense of a heartfelt story in need of more earnest attention. All the “as ifs” and “Run Forrest, run!”‘s spoil a unique and stirring coming out story (not to mention a compelling performance from Peyton Kennedy

Everything Sucks! Review: An Earnest Coming-Of-Age Story Mired In Nostalgia

You have to hand it to Everything Sucks!, Netflix’s new 90s-set coming-of-age dramedy from creators Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan: it is unafraid to be completely rapt with its sense of nostalgia. With its obvious musical cues featuring everything from Spacehog to Oasis, its bottles of Frutopia, baggy flannel shirts, and copious VHS tapes all displayed prominently, the series unabashedly enters into the crowded streaming arena with what it presumes is its best foot forward. But that appreciation for a bygone era soon bleeds into direct homage, as the series basically wears its elevator pitch on its sleeve. “What if Freaks and Geeks, but set in the 90s and also not funny?”. Meanwhile, the use of a semi-ostracized boys club being intruded upon by a girl, bullies with great hair, and the prescribed importance of a school’s Av Club suggest a note from Netflix that said:

‘Everything Sucks!’ Review: An Upbeat Nostalgia Party with Growing Pains

The choice of one’s favorite TV shows comes down to more than a preference of genre or an appreciation of certain tones or styles. It’s about who you are, the things you’ve been through, and how that all shapes your view of a series regardless of the creator’s intentions. This is especially true for a nostalgia series like Netflix’s Everything Sucks!, which comes from Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan and focuses on a group of 90s high schoolers. As a child of the 90s who would be around the age of the kids in …

Everything Sucks! spoiler-free review

Alec Bojalad Feb 16, 2018

90s-set comedy Everything Sucks! has comforting Generation Y charms but doesn't break any new ground, say our Us chums...

“Everything Sucks!” is a great, bold name for a TV show. Particularly a TV show about the 90s.

See related The Walking Dead: Steven Yeun reflects on Glenn The Walking Dead: TV show will not overtake the comics The Walking Dead season 8 episode 8 review: How It's Gotta Be The Walking Dead: season 9 confirmed

How else could you describe the youth experience in the 90s other than to say that everything sucks? The glorious excess of the 80s is wearing off, late night talk show hosts are teaching us how to be cynical and carry a sense of ironic detachment, Kurt Cobain is dead, and you have to rewind the damn tapes yourself.

The sense of ennui and dissatisfaction is a rich vein of drama for any piece

Everything Sucks!: first trailer

Joseph Baxter Kirsten Howard Feb 7, 2018

Netflix has released a big trailer for their new 90s-set show, Everything Sucks!, which is likely to tug at every nostalgic heartstring...

While the insane array of original series on Netflix probably can’t be accurately categorised by any one offering, the streaming giant has taken a special shine to nostalgia, evidenced by the embracing of the 1980s-era idiosyncrasies of Stranger Things, its fostering of the 2001 (early 1980s-set) cult film Wet Hot American Summer into a television franchise, as well as Full House spinoff Fuller House. However, teen comedy series Everything Sucks! brandishes a mantra that fits in the angsty era in which it will take place: the 1990s.

Here's the first trailer...

Amongst the array of 1990s iconography and tropes lies an irreverent take on the high school experience, that – in a comparison that can’t be evoked enough – is clearly reminiscent in tone

This Full Trailer For The 1990s Set Netflix Series Everything Sucks! is Absolutely Fantastic

Netflix has released a full trailer for their upcoming 1996-set series Everything Sucks! and it looks so good! The series looks like it will be filled with heart, humor, and nostalgia. This latest trailer offers us a better look at the stories that the series will tell and it goes beyond the drama of high school teens. It also focuses on two single parents who find themselves getting into a little trouble themselves as they start a relationship of their own.

I'm excited about this show! Having grown up as a teenager in the 90s, it's going to be fun to be reminded of what life was life back then, like with the whole dial-up internet! That just seems so ridiculous now! It's one of those shows that I'm sure will jar some other memories from the 90s loose, and I'm looking forward to that.

‘Everything Sucks!’ Trailer: Nostalgic Netflix Comedy Relives Your ’90s High School Experience
Last year, chenille sweaters were a holiday party staple and Jenny Slate made frizzy hair cool again in “Landline.” With Netflix’s latest comedy driving a Volvo station wagon back to 1996, it appears ’90s nostalgia is far from reaching a saturation point. The first trailer for “Everything Sucks!” promises plenty of VHS tapes, flannel, and CD-skipping jokes, plus a crew of scheming pre-teens who are just trying to deal. Looking like a cross between “Stranger Things” and “Big Mouth,” “Everything Sucks!” could be the latest Netflix comedy to go make waves.

Netflix orders 90s coming-of-age dramedy Everything Sucks!

Deadline is reporting that Netflix has placed a ten-episode series order for Everything Sucks!, a half-hour coming-of-age dramedy set in the 1990s.

The show hails from writers Ben York Jones (Like Crazy) and Michael Mohan (Save the Date) and is described as a quirky, funny coming-of-age story that follows two groups of high school misfits, an A/V club and a Drama club who collide in 1996 Oregon.

“Some of our favorite shows of all time — The Wonder Years, Happy Days, That 70s Show, Freaks and Geeks — looked back at bygone eras with 20 years of hindsight,” said Jones and Mohan. “We think this is a great time to take a look back at high school and relive the fashion, music, and attitudes of the mid-’90’s the way we remember it. Not sensationalized, not watered down; but desperate, heartfelt, awkward, and exciting.”
