On August 24, 2017, it was announced that Hulu had given the production a series order for a first season consisting of ten half-hour episodes. The series was created by Jason Ubaldi who is set to executive produce alongside Brian Dannelly, Shelley Zimmerman, Jordan Levin, Brett Bouttier, and Joe Davola. The series marks Hulu's second collaboration with AwesomenessTV after the 2016 series, Freakish. On April 22, 2018, it was announced that the series would premiere on May 11, 2018.
Alongside the initial series announcement, it was confirmed that show's large ensemble cast would include Chris Avila, Brec Bassinger, Chanel Celaya, Ty Doran, Teala Dunn, Allie Grant, Caleb Ray, Eva Gutowski, Tetona Jackson, Gus Kamp, Tom Maden, Jenn McAllister, Austin North, Tequan Richmond, Chester Rushing, Jake Short, Chance Sutton, Noureen DeWulf, Kate Flannery, and Dawan Owens.
On May 10, 2018, the series held its official premiere at Awesomeness HQ in Los Angeles, California.
In a mixed review, Robert Lloyd of The Los Angeles Times said, "Too long by half, awkward and obvious but not unlikable, the series is a cocktail mixed from stock characters and situations and whatever could be found in the folks' liquor cabinet the weekend they were away. You are free to interpret its allusiveness as intentional homage or as copying off one's neighbor's work. And of course, there is a portion of the hoped-for audience that will not be familiar with the many things that this is like, and a portion that will greet its familiar elements like old beloved friends." In another mixed review, Decider's Lea Palmieri recommended that viewers "skip" the series saying, "It might be hard to place yourself back in a time where the summer before you head off to college was the biggest hurdle in the world, and while it’s not a frivolous concern for many, it’s not quite enough of a hook to draw you in or make you care about the stakes at play, considering, you know, all the other stuff going on in 2018. In that sense, it is a fun escape viewing that doesn’t really run the risk of making you feel overly emotionally attached to anyone or anything taking place."
