What’s that saying? The lyrics change, but the song remains the same? Well, in the first teaser for Netflix’s That ’90s Show, the characters have changed, some of them anyway, but the song literally remains the same. The That ’90s Show teaser treats us to a look at a new generation, all while playing a 90-ified version of the familiar That ’70s Show theme song, “In the Street.” And honestly, it feels like we never really left the Forman basement in this first look at the spinoff series. What’s that sound, really? It’s nostalgia.
That ’90s Show Teaser Trailer
Take a look at the first That ’90s Show teaser below.
It’s the same old thing we did last week, only fast-forward a couple of decades. Red is still threatening people with feet in their unmentionables. Kitty is still delightfully oblivious. And the kids are still… doing what kids do best. Although this show feels a little younger than That ’70s Show, we can’t wait to see how That ’90s Show will fill the big couch left behind.
That ’90s Show Synopsis and Release Date
A release accompanying the That ’90s Show teaser trailer shares many more details about the show.
It’s 1995 and Leia Forman is desperate for some adventure in her life or at least a best friend who isn’t her dad. When she arrives in Point Place to visit her grandparents, Red and Kitty, Leia finds what she’s looking for right next door when she meets the dynamic and rebellious Gwen. With the help of Gwen’s friends, including her lovable brother Nate, his smart, laser-focused girlfriend Nikki, the sarcastic and insightful Ozzie, and the charming Jay, Leia realizes adventure could happen there just like it did for her parents all those years ago. Excited to reinvent herself, she convinces her parents to let her stay for the summer. With a basement full of teens again, Kitty is happy the Forman house is now a home for a new generation and Red is, well…Red.
That ’90s Show has also shared its release date. The show will first stream on January 19, 2023. It will feature 10 episodes, each running for 22 minutes.
That ’90s Show Cast and First Look Photos
Netflix has also shared character descriptions and first-look images of our favorite Point Place residents and co. You can take a look at them below and then get to know the motley crew we’ll meet in That ’90s Show.
Kurtwood Smith as Red A classic never goes out of style. When the new kids bring out the old Red, the spring in Red’s step puts a spring in Kitty’s too!
Debra Jo Rupp as Kitty A whole new world opens to Kitty with the new generation and she is right at home. It has never been cooler to be Kitty.
Callie Haverda as Leia Forman Smart like her mom, awkward like her dad, Leia is craving adventure. She’s just not quite sure where or how to start. Until she discovers a best friend in the most unlikely of places: next door to her grandparents’ house in Point Place.
Ashley Aufderheide as Gwen Life gets more interesting for Leia when she meets this Riot Grrrl. Equal parts loyalty, rebellion and heart, Gwen is a dynamic powerhouse and the unofficial leader of the new generation of Point Place kids.
Maxwell Donovan as Nate When you first meet Nate he seems like a big, dumb jock… but he’s actually not that athletic. Nate has a huge heart and it’s hard to tell who he loves more: his girlfriend, his best friend, or his beat-up, old van.
Mace Coronel as Jay Jay is charming and flirty – at least, he tries. It doesn’t always come out right. He considers himself a deep thinker, nobody else does.
Reyn Doi as Ozzie Everyone loves them some Ozzie. He’s insightful, sarcastic and has perspective beyond his years. Ozzie is gay and impatient with the world for not being as accepting as his friends.
Sam Morelos as Nikki Nikki is focused, smart, and driven. She approaches maintaining her GPA with the same energy an MMA fighter brings to a cage match. She can truly relax when she’s with her boyfriend, Nate and his friends, even though sometimes she’s not laughing with them, she’s laughing at them.
Andrea Anders as Sherri This single mom to Nate and Gwen is warm and breezily blunt. She rolls through life in a state of “pretty sure” – pretty sure the kids ate, pretty sure there’s gas in the car… When Leia makes friends with her kids, Sherri makes friends with Red and Kitty, and their coffee, and their couch, and their advice.
Of course, we already know we will also get to see familiar faces from That ’70s Show in the mix. Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama will all return to That ’90s Show. And most recently, we learned that Don Stark would reprise his role as Bob Pinciotti as well. Check out the clip below.
We can’t wait to see our first look at our favs, all grown up, sometime very soon.
