Freaks and Geeks is an American teen comedy-drama TV series with one season that was broadcasted from 1999-to-2000 on NBC. Due to low viewership and creative differences between show-runners and the network, the show was canceled after only 12 episodes had aired, although six more episodes that had already been produced, were aired later.

In the 2000s, the TV series achieved cult status, and it was repeatedly ranked among the best TV shows.
