We knew this time was coming. We live in such a nostalgia-heavy age, and with shows like Stranger Things really focusing heavily on the ‘80s, it was only a matter of time before ‘90s got its turn. Sure, you can perhaps point to shows like Fresh Off the Boat for that, but I don’t think it goes into the ‘90s nostalgia nearly as much as Stranger Things does into the ‘80s.
Well, wait no more, ’90s-hungry consumer, for Netflix once again has your back. The streaming service has just released a trailer for their upcoming series Everything Sucks. From its production design, to its overall tone, they really do an amazing job of capturing the essence of that decade. What a simpler time it was before the proliferation of the internet.
Everything Sucks follows two high school misfits — one from the A/V club, and one from the drama club. Their lives collide in 1996 Oregon, and what results is a 1990s-nostalgia coming of age dramedy that’s sure to charm.
“Some of our favorite shows of all time — The Wonder Years, Happy Days, That 70s Show, Freaks and Geeks — looked back at bygone eras with 20 years of hindsight,” show creators Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan told Deadline last year. “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.”
