That '70s Show is getting a new Netflix spin-off

New show, new decade...

Having debuted all the way back in 1998, That '70s Show would prove to be a huge hit, one that launched the careers of the likes of Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis and Topher Grace.


The show ran until 2006 and even generated a short-lived spin-off in 2002 in the form of That '80s Show, which only lasted for 13 episodes but did notably feature a pre-Always Sunny in Philadelphia Glenn Howerton.

And now, almost 20 years on from that particular attempt comes the news that Netflix is officially moving forward with... That '90s Show.

Part spin-off, part reboot, part continuation; the show will bring back Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp as Red and Kitty Forman, this time serving as stern-but-funny grandparents to Leia – Eric and Donna's daughter.

Set in 1995, the plot finds Leia visiting Red and Kitty for the summer where she bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids.


"Sex, drugs and rock 'n roll never dies, it just changes clothes," notes a Netflix press release.

That '90s Show will consist of 10 episodes and though it has yet to be confirmed, it is expected that some of the more familiar members of the original cast will at least turn up in cameo roles.
