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.”

What do you think? Is Everything Sucks up your alley? Let us know down below!

Everything Sucks hits Netflix on February 16, 2018.

    Oooh….so THIS is how my parents felt in the 80’s.

    Ya know, a lot of the stuff that kids remember from the 90’s was just carry overs from the 80’s
    VHS tapes and TV carts were in the 80’s first, ditto white out and iron ons.
    I’m not saying that this won’t be a good show, but it’s borrowing heavily from the previous decade.
    It’s like saying when I was a kid in the 80’s we dranks water out of garden hoses when playing outside in the summer. Pretty sure they did that in the 70’s, 60’s and even the 50’s too.

      yep. i started kindergarten in 1978 and graduated HS in ’91. i remember watching films in my elementary and middle school years that were actually on FILM stock…ie 2 reels run through a projector…i can still hear that clicking/ticking sound the tape makes as the film runs…the late 80s are when the TV carts and VHS tapes started showing up in class.

        I started Kindergarten in 1986 and still remember them showing us videos from the 70’s on those projectors.

      All decades borrow from previous decades…that’s how time and advancement of technology works. Music, movies and fashion move faster which is probably what you’ll see along with politics to differentiate from the 80s.

    This looks like it’s gonna suck.
