First Happy Days, then That 70s Show, and now there is Everything Sucks!. Many successful shows have recollected on a past era that has come and gone. Everything Sucks!, Netflix’s upcoming half-hour dramedy, is going to give viewers to chance to relive the 90s over again. The series is set in 1996 Oregon, and follows a high school A/V club and Drama club as they bump heads with each other. The series stars Peyton Kennedy and Jahi Winston as high school students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil. The cast also includes Patch Darragh, Claudine Nako, Sydney Sweeney, Elijah Stevenson, Quinn Liebling, and Rio Mangini.
When asked about their inspiration for the series, creators Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan said ‘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.’ You’re bound to feel all of these emotions as you watch the show and relive everyone’s least favorite time: high school. Everything Sucks! Will premiere in 2018 with Jones and Mohan serving as executive producers and Mohan directing many of the episodes. We at YEM are very excited for this series and will update you with more information as we get it.
