#IAmKateMessner — Fans of ‘Everything Sucks!’ Tell Netflix That Representation Matters
|Peyton Kennedy and Jahi Di'Allo Winston -- 'Everything Sucks!'|
Like you I’m heartbroken but I’m grateful I got to portray this complex & important character. Broken, closeted Kate blossomed into a teen icon. Love from fans & critics is testament to the power of her unique voice. I admire you for raising your unique voices. #iamkatemessner pic.twitter.com/Y5liRBZqCt— Peyton Kennedy (@peyton_kennedy) April 7, 2018
One of my favorite moments from 'Everything Sucks' was Kate seeing two girls kiss at the concert. I literally saw myself in Kate, while Kate saw herself in those other two girls. Representation is important #reneweverythingsucks pic.twitter.com/eZnmIjquvR— hamriax (@hamriax) April 10, 2018

What is really frustrating about this cancellation is that the show ended on a cliffhanger and a turning point for all the characters. But to Netflix I say: Long are the days where we would have to wait a whole year for a new season of Orange is the New Black or House of Cards. The streaming giant keeps releasing new original content on a monthly basis and much like NBC chasing the Friends-ratings whale, whatever way Netflix chooses to measure their audience, shows are no longer going to be the behemoths they once were. This just means that niche audiences are now a thing, much like Sense8’s ardent fanbase, this would be a great time for Netflix to embrace the cult favorite status that shows like 'Everything Sucks!' have managed to attain. After all, Netflix has been a pioneer for this type of original content and following the steps of NBC’s epic fail when they cancelled 'Freaks and Geeks' would be just that, another epic fail. So many shows are able to build a loyal audience when given a chance, and that is the only thing fans are asking for, a chance to share their love for 'Everything Sucks!' with others.
