Hello Wisconsin! We’re headed back to the basement of the Forman house, so grab some snacks and prepare for some classic dumb teen behaviour. That ’90s Show, the sequel series to the hit That ’70s Show, has hit tellies, so here’s what you can expect from the nostalgic new sitcom.
What is That ’90s Show?
For those of you old enough to remember, back in 1998, the comedy series That ’70s Show hit our screens. And over the next five years, the show followed the stories of a group of teens struggling with the trials and tribulations of adolescence. Episodes were mostly set in the basement of the Forman house, where this group of kids smoked weed, chatted about life and listened to angry rants from Eric Forman’s dad, Red.
Now, a casual 25 years later (good lord, those words just aged me), the kids of those same teens are back at the Forman house for summer.
The show’s synopsis reads as follows:
Set in Wisconsin in 1995, Follows Leia Forman, daughter of Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon), who is visiting her grandparents for the summer and bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red. Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll never dies, it just changes clothes.
Show me a trailer, please
Netflix has dropped an official trailer for That ’90s Show, and it looks as though this series is going to have all the same dry humour and chaotic teen drama of the original. Fans of That ’70s Show should be pleased.
