That ’90s Show: That ’70s Show Revival Premieres on Netflix

The series That ’90s Show arrived on Netflix this Thursday (19). The sequence will show the lives of the children of the characters from the original series: That ’70s Show. The sitcom, broadcast between 1998 and 2006, was a ratings success and was responsible for launching several actors to stardom, such as Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.

The synopsis for the new sitcom is as follows: “Kitty and Red Forman welcome a new generation of teenagers into their basement when granddaughter Leia decides to spend the summer with them in Wisconsin.”

With a premise that pays homage to the classic series and the return of a good part of the cast, find out what you need to know before watching Netflix’s new bet.


How many episodes does That ’90s Show have?

The production arrived at the streaming service with 10 episodes, from 22 to 30 minutes each. For now, only one season was produced and is available in the catalog. However, if the series manages not only to revive fan interest, but also to gain a new audience, it is expected that new seasons will be confirmed in the future.

Unlike the releases of most other streaming services, Netflix still uses the marathon format. That is, all episodes of the season are already available so that the viewer can watch them one after the other.

The Netflix spin-off came to revive fans’ love and nostalgia for the original series. During the airing of the classic series, a sequel had already been put into practice in 2002: That ’80s Show. In the end, the attempt failed. With only one season of 13 episodes, the derivative had no connection with the predecessor project and its characters did not have the same charisma and appeal as the previous ones.

Which actors from the original cast are back?

In this new Netflix premiere, the classic sitcom style is revived, with each episode showing the daily lives of teenagers who are spending the summer in Point Place. The relationships between the characters, their problems, challenges, joys and companionship were the central theme of the original series and continue to be in this spin-off.

Ashton Kutcher (Michael Kelso), Mila Kunis (Jackie Burkhart), Topher Grace (Eric Forman), Tommy Chong (Leo), Wilmer Valderrama (Fez) and Laura Prepon (Donna Pinciotti) will make guest appearances throughout the season.

It is still too early to say whether the new series will work in the same way as the classic one, but with a good part of the cast returning, with the scenarios that give fans nostalgia, and with the return of the creators of the original series, the couple Bonnie and Terry Turner , the new sitcom is expected to be well received by critics and audiences alike.
