The half-hour dramedy will be set at an Oregon high school in 1996
The dream of the ’90s is alive on Netflix. The streaming service has ordered 10 episodes of Everything Sucks!, a new series exploring the various intersections of high school misfits in 1996 Oregon. Judging by its title, it’s probably a safe bet the show will explore the myopia and slacker culture that characterized that decade in the popular imagination.
Peyton Kennedy and Jahi Winston star as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil, with Patch Darragh and Claudine Nako playing their respective parents. The series — created by Ben York Jones (Like Crazy, Newness) and Michael Mohan (Save the Date, Pink Grapefuit) — will explore the collision between the high school’s A.V. club and its drama club. Like another recent Netflix series, GLOW, Everything Sucks! will be a half-hour dramedy.
Everything Sucks! is set to hit Netflix in 2018.
