The cast, producers and fans of the Netflix comedy/drama Everything Sucks! will not let the series go gently into that good night of cancellations. Reactions were fast and furious online to the news that the 1990s-set series from writers Ben York Jones (Like Crazy) and Michael Mohan (Save the Date) was being axed by Netflix after one season.
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.
