The gang has returned! The official teaser and launch date for That ’90s Show, the spinoff series to That ’70s Show, have been announced by Netflix, and what’s old is new again.
The 10-episode series, which premieres on January 19, reintroduces Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp as Red and Kitty Forman as they introduce a new generation of kids, including Eric and Donna’s daughter, Leia (Callie Haverda), who will take over their renowned basement.
That ’90s Show, which reunites original That ’70s Show creators Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner, begins up in 1995, when Leia is visiting her grandparents for the summer and meets the lively and rebellious Gwen (Ashley Aufderheide).
With the help of Gwen’s friends, including her lovable brother, Nate (Maxwell Donovan), his smart, laser-focused girlfriend, Nikki (Sam Morelos), the sarcastic and insightful Ozzie (Reyn Doi), and the charming Jay (Mace Coronel), Leia realizes that adventure, just like it did for her parents all those years ago, could happen there. She persuades her parents to let her remain for the summer since she is eager to reinvent herself. With a basement full of teenagers once more, Kitty is relieved that the Forman house is now a home for a new generation, and Red is, well, Red.
From the familiar views of the Forman mansion to Red and Kitty’s characteristic banter to the adolescents lighting up in the basement, the minute-long trailer has everything you’d expect in a follow-up to That ’70s Show.
“OK, kids, the basement is all yours,” Kitty proudly tells the teens, as they familiarize themselves with their new hangout spot.
Original stars Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Wilmer Valderrama and Tommy Chong are all set to reprise their That ’70s Show characters for the series.
“It was like going home for Christmas to see your whole family. It really was like Christmas. It was a gift. They are all such amazing, amazing people who are so influential in my life and who I became,” Grace told ET of being back with his old co-stars. “To be able to go back and not just hang out with them together, which was so much fun, but then to be able to work again with them… it was great. And I can’t wait for people to see it.”
That ’90s Show launches on Netflix on January 19, 2023.
