(WB) Netflix has canceled “Everything Sucks,” the ’90s teen dramedy from writers Ben York Jones (“Like Crazy”) and Michael Mohan (“Save the Date”), after only one season, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The series focused on a group of outcast teens, one group in an AV club and the other in drama club, in Boring, Ore. in 1996. Luke O’Neil (Jahi Di’Allo Winston) develops a crush on the principal’s daughter Kate Messner (Peyton Kennedy) but Kate finds herself having feelings for drama student Emaline Addario (Sydney Sweeney).
“We’re super proud of the show we made — and very proud that it found an audience of very passionate fans, for many of whom it became an important personal touchstone: either reflecting their current life, or an echo of their own teenage years,” executive producer Jeff Pinker said in a statement. “We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity, but are very disheartened we won’t be continuing to tell these stories.”
Cast members and fans of the show aren’t giving up hope. They’ve taken to social media to rally for Netflix to grant the series a second season.

My teenage daughter and I loved watching this show together. She is the same age as @peyton_kennedy which made her character feel real and relatable. Seriously, @netflix I don't get it. #everythingsucks https://t.co/GJIl0Jg2Q8— heathershaw (@heathershaw) April 9, 2018
