Hello, again, Wisconsin! That ’90s Show Season 2 is happening on Netflix, bringing 16 more episodes of teenage exploration, nosy neighbors, and smoking circles to the streamer. The sequel series to That ’70s Show exceeded expectations at launch, landing a spot on Netflix’s Top 10 for an English-speaking series in 35 countries. The stoner comedy quickly amassed 41 million hours viewed, making it one of the most successful revival series in recent times.

“All of us at That ’90s Show were beyond excited by the warm, enthusiastic response to our first season. We can’t wait to return to Point Place for another summer of laughs and surprises. Hello 1996!” said Gregg Mettler, Co-Creator/Showrunner/Executive Producer.

“We owe the fans, old and new, for taking the trip with us in the first season – and we can’t wait to be there with them in the second season,” said Lindsey Turner, Co-Creator & Executive Producer.

Here’s the official synopsis for That ’90s 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 features original cast members Debra Jo Rupp as Kitty Forman and Kurtwood Smith as Red Forman. Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon, Wilmer Valderrama, and Tommy Chong pop into the show for brief guest spots, though the show doesn’t rely on them to keep fans of the original series coming back for more.

Newcomers to the cast include Callie Haverda as Leia Forman, Ashley Aufderheide as Gwen, Maxwell Donovan as Nate, Mace Coronel as Jay Kelso, Reyn Doi as Ozzie, Sam Morelos as Nikki, Andrea Anders as Sherri, Nate and Gwen’s single mom.

Have you binged That ’90s Show yet? It’s not without cringe, but I am enjoying the ’90s aesthetic callbacks to my days as a basement-dwelling teen. Let us know if you’re excited about That ’90s Show Season 2 in the comments below.
