“Everything Sucks!” is a coming-of-age comedy series that “follows two groups of high school misfits,” an A/V club and a drama club, “who collide in 1996 Oregon,” according to Netflix’s description of the show.

Variety says the show’s plot centres on two friends who “join forces to make a movie.”

“Everything Sucks!” premieres February 16 on Netflix.

Netflix released the first trailer for the series last week (which you can find below), and it features a “Pop-Up Video“-themed view of a classroom, filled with 90s-related nostalgia and humour.

The series is led by the up-and-coming teen actors Peyton Kennedy and Jahi Winston.
