That 90s Show


Cover of the series on Netflix

On January 19, 2023, “That 90s show” aired consisting of 10 episodes. This show is a sequel to the hit series “That 70s Show” which aired in 1998 and ended in 2006. The show is set in the summer of 1995, in Point Place Wisconsin following Leia Forman who is staying with her grandparents, Kitty and Red Forman who are returning characters. Leia is the daughter of Eric and Donna Forman who were the main characters in the original series. 


We get introduced to new characters and new friends of Leia who become key characters in the show. As the show progresses, we get several cameos from old characters returning for a feature. Some included are Fez, the foreign exchange student, Bob Pinciotti, Donna’s father, and Leia’s grandfather and Leo, the community’s hippie. 


We get introduced to Jay Kelso, son of Jackie and Micheal Kelso who ends up being Leia’s love interest. We watch the ups and downs of their relationship along with the ups and downs between Leia and her new friends Ozzie, Gwen, Nate, and Nikki. All of these characters spend their summer in Point Place introducing Leia into their lives. Gwen and Leia become close friends very quickly and end up helping each other out throughout the summer


People have many mixed reviews regarding the show. Some say it’s a great show full of nostalgia however some say it ruined the original show for them as it had plot holes and didn’t follow the true nature of the original show. Overall, I would give this show a 7/10. It had a very fun and interesting plot and it was a nice tribute to the original series.
