Netflix finally released the much-awaited spin-off series That ’90s Show on 19 January 2023. Fans were eagerly waiting for the ten-episode spin-off to drop due to its connection to the 1998 hit series That ’70s Show. The Netflix series centres around the lives of a new generation of teenagers who are basically the children of the original characters from That ’70s Show.
The spin-off is set during the summer of 1995, about two decades after the original series’ timeline, and revolves around the lives of six teenagers under the vigilance of Red and Kitty. So as you binge-watch the new Netflix spin-off, get ready to be overwhelmed with lots of laughter and a heavy dose of nostalgia.

Does the That ’70s Show original cast make a comeback?
Yes, there are a lot of characters from That ’70s Show who return in the spin-off. The most obvious ones are the two we all saw in the trailer, Red and Kitty Forman, played so wonderfully by Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp. We will be getting lots of Red and Kitty moments in the spin-off as both Smith and Jo Rupp are series regulars. That’s not all, as other OG characters like Jackie, Leo and Michael, portrayed by Mila Kunis, Tommy Chong and Ashton Kutcher, are also making guest appearances.
There will also be a fair share of new characters in That ’90s Show including Callie Haverda portraying Leia Forman, Ashley Aufderheide playing Gwen and Mace Coronel playing Jay Kelso.
Here is what Twitter thinks about the new spin-off series
Even before the show premiered, there had been a lot of chatter on Twitter about That ’90s Show. This mostly had to do with fans guessing which OG characters would be making cameo appearances and other folks feeling nostalgic about 90s sitcoms that have become a rare breed in today’s TV landscape.
Now that the show has premiered, here’s what Twitter has to say about it:
Thank you to #That90sShow for including a reference to my favorite 90’s veteran and his debut film!
As a TV baby, I still get a rush whenever my name or work is shouted out in media I didn’t create.
And the fact that @tommychong was the button was bliss!
This made my morning! https://t.co/NEMFKoxfvR
