Created by Ben York Jones and Michael Mohan, Netflix’s Everything Sucks! was a high school coming-of-age story that took place in the 1990s and followed students in the rivaling A.V. and Drama clubs come together to create a film. The show was praised for its portrayal of character Kate Messner’s coming out story, but debuted to generally mixed reviews back in February. Now Netflix has confirmed that we won’t be returning to Boring, Oregon as the series has been cancelled after one season.
Watch my review of Netflix’s Everything Sucks! season one, below:
Executive producer Jeff Pinker gave this statement: “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. We are grateful to Netflix for the opportunity, but are very disheartened we won’t be continuing to tell these stories.”
Unfortunately for fans of Everything Sucks! this means the show ends on a cliffhanger – with Luke O’Neil’s dad Leroy returning home after leaving his family years before – that will never be resolved.
