If Stranger Things made 80s kids crave The Clash, Dungeons & Dragons, Eggos and Ham Radio, you 90s kids are finally going to get your chance to live out your beloved pre-millennium nostalgia, as Netflix has announced its latest television show will be set in the 90s - 1996, to be precise.

According to Deadline, Netflix has commissioned a coming-of-age teen drama called Everything Sucks! that will consist of ten half-our episodes about two groups of high school misfits, an A/V club and a Drama club, that meet head-on in 1996 Oregon.

Created by writer Ben York Jones (Like Crazy) and Michael Mohan (Save The Date), the show follows in the same vein of Stranger Things in the sense is will also serve as a treasure trove of childhood nostalgia.

'Some of our favourite shows of all time — The Wonder Years, Happy Days, That 70s Show, Freaks and Geeks — looked back at bygone eras with 20 years of hindsight,' Jones and Mohan said in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

'We think this is a great time to take a look back at high school and relive the fashion, music, and attitudes of the mid-'90's the way we remember it. Not sensationalised, not watered down; but desperate, heartfelt, awkward, and exciting,' they added.

Guys, we couldn't agree more.

If a healthy dose of the 90s isn't enough to tantalise your viewing habits, the cast of Everything Sucks! will include a bunch of young actors – similar to Stranger Things – including the likes of Peyton Kennedy (American Fable), Jahi Winston (The New Edition Story), Sydney Sweeney (Sharp Objects), Elijah Stevenson (Captain Fantastic) and Rio Mangini (Teen Wolf).

Cindy Holland, the Vice President for original content for Netflix said: 'We're looking forward to spending some time back in the '90s.

'Whether you were in A/V, drama, sports or band, we think everyone will find something to relate to in this coming of age story about the one thing that sucks above everything else — high school,' she added.

Unfortunately, Everything Sucks! isn't thought to hit the streaming service until 2018, so at least we'll be able to get our Stranger Things fix ahead of celebrating what we all know is the best 20th century decade ever - the 90s.
