A brand new Netflix series is perfect viewing for anyone who lived through the '90s

Nostalgia certainly worked with Stranger Things, will it have the same effect for Everything Sucks?

Stranger Things is probably the most recent and most pertinent example that proves that modern audiences still love a blast from the past, as long as it’s delivered with sufficient quality, of course.

While Stranger Things took viewers back in time to the 1980s, a brand new Netflix series, Everything Sucks, will revisit the ‘90s, a decade that still seems recent to those who lived through it as adolescents, even though it’s nearly been 20 years since the turn of the millennium.

America has always excelled at coming-of-age, high school stories and hopes are high for Everything Sucks, which revolves around an AV club and drama club in a high school in the town of Boring, Oregon.

The series stars Peyton Kennedy (American Fable, The Captive) and Jahi Winston (The New Edition Story) as students Kate Messner and Luke O’Neil, with Patch Darragh (Sully, Boardwalk Empire) and Claudine Nako (Grimm) as their respective parents.

The 10-episode, half-hour dramedy is created by Ben York Jones (Like Crazy, Newness) and Michael Mohan (Save the Date, Pink Grapefruit), who will both serve as executive producers.

It will be well worth a look when it arrives on Netflix on 16 February.
