Everything Sucks! trailer debut shows everything sucking

Netflix released the Everything Sucks! trailer to show that everything, well, sucked in the ’90s. It’s an ode to that radical, rebellious decade of plaid shirts, disaffected singer-songwriters and ska bands, and dial-up Internet, telling the romances of teens and single parents across 10 half-hour episodes.

Jahi Winston (The New Edition Story) is Luke O’Neil, a freshman in (totally real) Boring, Oregon’s Boring High School in 1996. Luke and his friends join the AV club to find their fellow geeks in the savage teenage world of high school. Peyton Kennedy (American Fable, The Captive) is Kate Messner, also a member of the AV club who is struggling to form her own identity. Luke and Kate find in each other kindred quirky nerdy souls, but have to contend with all the drama that comes with coming of age, not to mention Kate’s dad being the very principal!

Patch Darragh (SullyBoardwalk Empire) is the awkward but well-meaning principal Ken Messner who kindles a romance with Luke’s mom Sherry O’Neil, played by Claudine Nako (Grimm). Both are single parents dealing with their children’s teen anxieties as well as their own mid-life crises. Parenting apparently also isn’t immune to sucking.

Everything Sucks! is created by Ben York Jones (Like CrazyNewness) and Michael Mohan (Save the Date, Pink Grapefruit). It also stars Rio Mangini, Quinn Liebling, Sydney Sweeney and Elijah Stevenson.

All episodes will drop on Netflix on February 16, 2018.
