Netflix has canceled coming-of-age dramedy Everything Sucks after one season, Deadline has confirmed.
The 1990s-set series, a Netflix production, hailed from writers Ben York Jones (Like Crazy) and Michael Mohan (Save the Date) and producers Midnight Radio. It had premiered to mixed reviews.
Said Everything Sucks EP Jeff Pinkner of Midnight Radio: “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.”
Created by Jones and Mohan, the series followed two groups of high school misfits, an A/V club and a drama club, who collide in 1996 Oregon. It starred Peyton Kennedy and Jahi Winston as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil, with Patch Darragh and Claudine Nako as their respective parents. The series also featured Sydney Sweeney (Emaline), Elijah Stevenson (Oliver), Quinn Liebling (Tyler) and Rio Mangini (McQuaid).
The series fit into Netflix’s 1990s nostalgia theme along with Fuller House, a follow-up to the popular 1990s sitcom Full House. The streaming service also has the full library of Friends, one of the most popular sitcom of the 1990s.
Everything Sucks follows the recent cancellation of Chuck Lorre’s pot comedy Disjointed starring Kathy Bates, which completed its 20-episode order.
