Shows like Saved by the Bell, Full House and Boy Meets World (just to name a few) are all iconic shows for a reason. Why? Because the ’90s were lit. That’s why Netflix tried to bring it back with the ’90s-set series Everything Sucks.
For those Gen Z kids who oh-so-unfortunately missed the fantastic era that was the ’90s – well, they love the era too. Because let’s be real, they watch ’90s television too. The power of re-runs, ladies and gents. While we all thought Everything Sucks would be a dose of nostalgia every millennial didn’t even know they needed in their lives, it looks like something about it didn’t stick. Sadly, the show has been canceled.
Why did Everything Sucks get canceled?
The series premiered on Netflix on Feb. 16, 2018 – so it really did have quite a short run. Despite the fact that Twitter passionately exploded with the hashtag #RenewEverythingSucks, it turns out the show didn’t get picked up for another round of episodes.
Netflix VP original content Cindy Holland told Deadline, “because we were seeing a much low completion rate of the whole season, we realized that it is very unlikely that we would be able to grow the audience, move a whole new audience through the show and have a large enough audience to justify a season 2.”
What is Everything Sucks about?
Taking place in 1996, the quirky series follows the journey of a bunch of high school kids in Oregon. More specifically, the two “nerdy” groups of kids in school – the Drama club and the AV club. With the tag line “You Can’t Fast Forward High School,” the show is about how these two misfit groups collide in high school – where, you know, everything sucks.
Meet the cast of Everything Sucks
The cast of Everything Sucks are all super young, so you might not totally recognize them – but you probably have seen a number of the cast members on TV before. Let us spark your memory.
You may remember him best from playing Ace McFumbles in Bella and the Bulldogs, but prepare to see Rio Mangini in a new light in Everything Sucks.
