It's Misfit vs. Misfit in the New '90s-set Netflix Series EVERYTHING SUCKS!

Netflix, the world’s leading internet TV network, has ordered ten episodes of Everything Sucks!

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 series stars Peyton Kennedy (American FableThe Captive) and Jahi Winston (The New Edition Story) as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil, with Patch Darragh (Sully, Boardwalk Empire) and Claudine Nako (Grimm) as their respective parents. The series also features Sydney Sweeney (“Emaline”), Elijah Stevenson (“Oliver”), Quinn Liebling (“Tyler”) and Rio Mangini (“McQuaid”).

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 YearsHappy DaysThat 70s ShowFreaks 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.”
