Everything Sucks in the media

That behind the scenes video was fun.  It looks like those kids had a real blast filming this show.

Alan Sepinwall interviewed the show’s creators, Ben York Jones ("Stargrove") and Michael Mohan. Spoiler warning.

This wasn’t the best show but it had a certain charm. But I guess being just ok isn’t good enough these days.

Yep. 

I was actually shocked and saddened to read the news today. I was really looking forward to that second season and seeing what would happened with damn CLIFFHANGER. It could have made for a really interesting second season.
Crap, I really liked this one. If that damn Disjointed got two seasons, at least Everything Sucks could have. I mean, it couldn't be THAT expensive to produce, those kids don't make a big paycheck I'd wager.
RIP Everything Sucks. You were one of the good ones.  Will have to do a rewatch one day.

I just found out about this show, binged it, and am crushed that it's already been cancelled! How do they expect shows to succeed if they aren't well-publicized?

I know....this is the show I have been telling everyone I know to watch.  Apparently, I don't know enough people.  Sigh....

Super cute, but man, the exchange "Were you alive in the 90's?" ...  "Not by a long shot!"  made me want to fling my 47-year-old self on the floor and cry.  I graduated from high school about a decade before most of you (1987), but I fondly (and sometimes not-so-fondly) remember being in my mid-20's and trying to grow into a fully-realized adult.  [Update:  still working on that :)  ]  This show took me back, and let's face it, high school never really ends, and most people aren't comfortable in their own skin for years after graduation.  

And the music!!

According to Holland, Everything Sucks! didn’t have enough people watching it through to the end. This suggests that enough people started it but didn’t stick with it.

Retention rates for Netflix are extremely important, knowing that viewing figures tend to drop between the seasons anyway. If there was already a large drop in the first season, Netflix knew the drop could be bigger for Everything Sucks! season 2 so chose not to risk it.

That's unfortunate, but I get it. It didn't have lots of sexy rapes and suicides like the popular teen shows so I guess the thrill-seekers wandered off.

I watched 13 Reasons Why, The End of the Fucking World, and other teen shows on Netflix, but I also binge watched Everything Sucks over two or three days. I can't speak for the thrill seekers, but I didn't wander off! Apparently there weren't enough of us.
