That ’90s Show Has Been Renewed For Season 2 At Netflix

‘That ’90s Show’ Renewed

Netflix renewed that 1990s show for a second season just two weeks after it premiered on January 19. The news was posted on Instagram.

The news comes just a few weeks after the show’s first season debuted on the streaming service on Jan. 19. According to Netflix; the show made it to the top 10 list of English-language shows in 35 countries, where more than 41 million hours were watched.

Everyone at “That ’90s Show” was thrilled by how warm and enthusiastic people were about our first season. We can’t wait to return to Point Pleasant for another summer full of surprises and laughs. Hello, 1996!” Gregg Mettler, co-creator, executive producer, and showrunner for the series, said this.

As the name suggests, the series starts years after “That ’70s Show” ended in 1995. “Leia Forman (Callie Haverda) Is Desperate for Some Adventure in Her Life—or at Least a Best Friend Who Isn’t Her Dad,” says the official logline.

When Leia goes to Point Place to see her grandparents, Red (Kurtwood Smith) and Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp), she meets the dynamic and rebellious Gwen, who is right next door (Ashley Aufderheide). With the help of Gwen’s friends, like her sweet brother Nate (Maxwell Acee Donovan), his intelligent, laser-focused girlfriend Nikki (Sam Morelos), the sarcastic and wise Ozzie (Reyn Doi), and the charming Jay (Mace Coronel), Leia realizes that adventure could happen there, just like it did for her parents all those years ago.

In the first season, Tommy Chong, Don Stark, and original series star Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Wilmer Valderrama all made appearances.

Netflix’s Vice President of Comedy Series, Tracey Pakosta, said, “We’re thrilled that the amusing stories from Point Place, Wisconsin, continue to resonate around the world, no matter the decade.”

“That Show from the 1970s” Bonnie and Terry Turner and their daughter Lindsey Turner and Mettler also helped make “That ’90s Show.” All of them, along with Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner, Jessica Goldstein, Chrissy Pietrosh, and Mandy Summers, are the executive producers.
