Netflix Announces ‘That ’70s Show’ Spinoff, ‘That ’90s Show’
Netflix has announced that a new That ’70s Show spinoff will be hitting the streaming platform, That ’90s Show.
The spinoff revolves around Eric and Donna’s daughter, Leia Forman, who has come back to Wisconsin to visit her grandparents. Much like the original, which parodied life in the ’70s, this show will parody life in the ’90s.
Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp will be returning as the Foremans, and the original series creators Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner are coming back to work as writers. Their daughter, Lindsey Turner, will be working as a writer as well.
This isn’t the first time That ’70s Show got a spinoff as Fox attempted to launch That ’80s Show in 2002. The show was reviewed poorly by both fans and critics and was canceled after one season.
The original show ran from 1998 to 2006 over the course of eight seasons and 200 episodes. It was also responsible for launching the careers of many household names such as Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Wilmer Valderrama and Danny Masterson.
No information on a release date for the show has been given as of now, and it remains unclear if any other cast members will be reprising their roles.
