In an earnings call last month, Netflix‘s head of content Ted Sarandos listed a few upcoming Netflix originals that audiences should look forward to, including the big-budget, sci-fi series “Altered Carbon,” and the comedy series “Everything Sucks!”

Sarandos singled out “Everything Sucks!” as a “sleeper hit that people should keep an eye on.”

“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 described the show’s plot as centering on two friends who “join forces to make a movie.”

“Everything Sucks!” premieres February 16 on Netflix. The series is led by the up-and-coming teen actors Peyton Kennedy and Jahi Winston.

Netflix released the first official trailer for the series on Tuesday. It features references to Alanis Morisette, a song from The Cranberries, and other ’90s-related nostalgia and humour.
