Netflix has come for a new sequel show titled, ‘That’s ’90s Show. It was October 2021, the internet could barely hold itself when it got announced that Netflix decided to a sequel series to the hit sitcom That ’70s Show, titled That ’90s Show.
That ’70s Show, which was continued for eight seasons between 1998 and 2006, followed a group of teens in the small Wisconsin town of Point Place in the 1970s as they came of age, and embarked on hijinks. That ’90s Show picks up in the summer of 1995 as Leia Forman, daughter of Eric, and Donna , visits her grandparents Red and Kitty in Point Place. Leia quickly makes friends with the new generation of kids who run amok in Point Place.
The brand-new teaser trailer gives fans everything they loved about the original series mixed with everything they loved about the 90s. Firstly, the set for the show looks exactly how it did in the original series, from the kitchen to the basement where the teens all hang out. Additionally, as seen in the teaser, Smith, and Rupp have not missed a beat getting back into their characters. Kitty is still her lovable cheery self while Red is still the stern dad fans remember.
The teaser trailer even features Red threatening to shove his foot up someone’s ass. As seen in the teaser, also returning from the original series is “the circle”, a framing device from That ‘70s Show, which was used when characters smoked weed without actually showing them smoking. Lastly, the fashion seen in the teaser immediately screams the 90s, with so much plaid flannel.
The first-look images feature Smith and Rupp looking at home back on the set fans all know and love. One has Smith’s Red reading the newspaper, a preferred past-time of the character, and another has Rupp’s Kitty baking, another preferred past-time.
But the other images introduce us to the new characters in some iconic locations. One shows Leia in the Formans’ basement, a classic hangout spot, with her new group of friends. There is the rebellious Gwen , the lovable Nate by, Nate’s smart and driven girlfriend Nikki, the charming and flirty Jay, and the sarcastic Ozzie. There is also an image of the new friends, with a keg, drinking out of red solo cups on the Point Place water tower. A fun detail of that image is that you can still see the pot leaf, albeit faded, that was painted on it in an episode of the original series.
