Freaks & Geeks and Undeclared arrives in the US and Canada

Like a unicorn or a jackalope, if you are one of those mystical creatures that breezed through high school socially unscathed, this is of no concern to you.


For the rest of us, the wait is over. Whether you’re more at home playing Dungeons & Dragons with the A / V Club or smoking on the patio, be you a mathlete, or a cheerleader - it’s 1980, and school is officially in session at McKinley High!

Profoundly honest, heartbreaking and hopeful, Freaks & Geeks became an instant cult classic with its triumphant single season.

Available now for the first time to Netflix subscribers in the US and Canada – experience the genius brainchild of Judd Apatow and Paul Feig. The Emmy-winning show assembled a perfect cast; launching the careers of James Franco, Linda Cardellini, Jason Segel, Seth Rogen, Ben Foster, John Francis Daley and Busy Philipps to name a few.

Ah, and the music! Never has a show been scored to a more epic soundtrack: Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Ted Nugent, Cream, Rush, Joe Jackson, Supertramp, XTC, Queen, Joan Jett, Billy Joel, KISS, Journey, Bowie, The Who, The Cars, Jethro Tull, The Grateful Dead. . . . the list seriously goes on and on.

Once you’ve graduated from High School, jump into Judd Apatow’s vision of college life with Undeclared starring Jay Baruchel & Seth Rogen.
