 Everything Sucks!
(2018) on IMDb

A quirky, funny coming of age story that follows two groups of high school misfits, Everything Sucks! follows an A/V club and a Drama club who collide in 1996 Oregon.

The 10-episode, half-hour dramedy is created by Ben York Jones (Like CrazyNewness) and Michael Mohan (Save the DatePink Grapefruit), who will both serve as executive producers. Mohan will also serve as director for the bulk of the series, with Ry Russo-Young directing episodes as well. Jeff Pinkner (Lost, Fringe), Scott Rosenberg (October RoadLife on Mars), Josh Appelbaum (AliasOctober Road) and André Nemec (AliasOctober Road) from Midnight Radio will also serve as executive producers. Everything Sucks! is a Netflix production and will premiere in 2018.

Said Jones and Mohan, “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. 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.”

We’re looking forward to spending some time back in the ‘90s,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. “Whether you were in A/V, drama, sports or band, we think everyone will find something to relate to in this coming of age story about the one thing that sucks above everything else -- high school.” - Netflix

 

Happy bingeing! 🍿 - Nick Runyeard

the popular lgbtq-friendly teen series gets axed after 1st season

😒 yep, Everything Sucks! say goodbye to another good show, Netflix wields their mighty axe...again

Producers have confirmed that the quirky Netflix teen comedy/drama Everything Sucks! has been cancelled by the streaming service after only one season.

 

The story broke late Friday afternoon and was confirmed shortly after by showrunners.  Messages to reps at Netflix for comment remained unanswered as of publishing time.  However, Netflix is neither in the practice of releasing viewer numbers nor the reasons behind cancelling a show.

 

In a statement to Variety, series EP Jeff Pinkner said, "We’re super proud of the show we made — and very proud that it found an audience of very passionate fans, for many of whom it became an important personal touchstone: either reflecting their current life, or an echo of their own teenage years. We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity, but are very disheartened we won’t be continuing to tell these stories."

 

(I'm one one of those whose life was reflected in this show.)

Peyton Kennedy, whose character, Kate, is gay and whose performance no doubt inspired LGBTQ youth, upon hearing of the cancellation, simply Tweeted a broken heart emoji.

 

Since the cancellation was announced, fans of the teen dramedy have been voicing their opinion on social media.

"If I had Everything Sucks! when I was a kid it might not have taken me so damn long to come to grips with my sexuality. I really feel for the young viewers who saw their own struggles in Kate and felt less alone," Tweeted one fan.

 

Most comments, however, were less...nice, shall I say?

 

"i (sic) CANT BELIEVE THEY CANCELLED EVERYTHING SUCKS I HATE NETFLIX," voiced one fan.

 

"GUESS WHO WILL NOT (RENEW) HER SUBSCRIPTION?" warned another.

 

Many were filled with so much vitriol toward the muckety-mucks at Netflix, well, even I wouldn't repeat them here.

 

For Netflix, the decision to cancel the show, that had a small but extremely loyal fan-base, wasn't an easy one to make.  More on this angle later.

 

In the meantime, it's never too late. You can support the show with the hastag #reneweverythingsucks. - Nick Runyeard
