It was a staple on FOX during the late 90s and early 2000s and launched Ashton Kutcher’s career (and eventual marriage to co-star Mila Kunis) and now That 70s Show is all grown up—sort of. 

Netflix is debuting a reimagined reboot of the cult classic in January, and released a teaser for That 90s Show this week. 

The streaming service describes the plot of the 10-episode comedy series as a new take on a familiar story: “Welcome back to your favorite basement. Same Formans, new friends. It’s 1995 and Leia Forman, daughter of Eric and Donna, is visiting her grandparents for the summer, where she bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red.”

Kitty and Red Forman are played by the characters’ originals, Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith, respectively. And other That 70s Show cast members are scheduled to make cameos in the series; Topher Grace (Eric Forman), Laura Prepon (Donna Pinciotti), Ashton Kutcher (Michael Kelso), Mila Kunis (Jackie Burkhart) and Wilmer Valderrama (Fez) are all listed in the credits for the pilot episode.

The series is reminiscent of other reboots aimed squarely at the nostalgic hearts of Xennials and Geriatric Millenials (smart, TV execs, very smart). Girl Meets World was a spin-off of the much-loved TGIF staple on ABC, Boy Meets World—and even starred OGs Corey (Ben Savage) and Topanga Matthews (Danielle Fishel) as parents of a coming-of-age teen daughter, Riley (Rowan Blanchard).

There was also Fuller House, a continuation of Full House and so many of the characters we grew up with, which smartly recast D.J. Tanner (Candace Cameron-Bure), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), Danny Tanner (the late Bob Saget), Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) and Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) reprising their roles. 

We’ve also enjoyed a resurrection of Saved By the Bell, a TV-adaptation of The Baby-sitters Club series, and an upcoming Blue’s Clues movie featuring the original host Steve Burns himself.

It really is a great time for tweens and teens of the ’80s and ’90s to be alive, isn’t it?

If only I could find my Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper and that elusive Mall Madness board game I just know is hiding somewhere in (how very appropriately) my mom and dad’s basement somewhere . . . 

For now, we can just enjoy all the TV made especially for our nostalgic selves—sounds like a win to me!

We Lost Another Piece of Our Childhood When Bob Saget Died

In: Living
Bob Saget

As a kid, time seemed infinite.  We were always waiting for it to pass. To get a little bit taller so we could reach the bathroom faucet on our own. To get a few months older so we could stay up for I Love Lucy on Nick at Nite. To have a driver’s license. Stay out past midnight. Graduate. Get married. Start that family.  But now that we’re adults circling 40, we know the sobering truth: time is a double-edged thief.  Worse, that certainty we used to have that what constantly, predictably, comfortably was would, of course, always be is...

8 Ways To Tell You're A Kid From The '90s (And Now We Feel Old) www.herviewfromhome.com

Growing up in the 90s was a blast! Do you remember recording mix tapes off the radio? Waiting all day for them to play the song you wanted and hoping you could hit record at just the right moment? The sound of AOL internet dialing in. Holding your breath hoping it will connect so you can chat with your online friends. Wearing overalls, mini backpacks as purses, choker necklaces, and jelly shoes. Me too! It all feels like it happened yesterday. When I stop and think about it, I don’t feel 35. Not at all! I remember when my mom...

Merry Christmas! The Santa of Your ’90s Childhood is Coming To Disney+

Tim Allen Elizabeth Mitchell look out a holiday window in The Santa Clauses

When I was a kid, there were certain VHS tapes (remember those?!) forbidden to be recorded over (remember how you could do that?!). Those untouchable tapes held family home videos, or some favorite episodes of Bob Saget hosting America’s Funniest Home Videos, or your little sister’s favorite Disney movie. But in our house, there was one cassette extra specially untouchable: the one we recorded The Santa Clause on when it aired on network television. If you were a kid in the ’90s, you know the 1994 holiday classic. Tim Allen wasn’t just Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor on Home Improvement...
