Kitty and Red Forman are returning, along with their iconic basement, for a whole new group of teenagers in the basement in That 90s Show.
When That 70s Show first aired back in 1998, it took place 22 years after the show’s events, which began in 1976.
Unfortunately for fans of the original sitcom, 25 years will have passed from the airing of the That 70s Show pilot and 2023, when its sequel/spinoff ‘That 90s Show’ premieres.
Set in 1995, 28 years in the past, the show returns many of the original cast and hopes to ride a wave of nostalgia just like other recent reboots. Here is everything we know about That 90s Show.

Much like the original, That 90s Show will follow a new generation hanging out in the Forman’s basement under the watchful eye of Kitty and Red. This time, however, the teens will have to deal with the problems of the 1990s.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s official description reads: “Hello, Wisconsin! 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. Sex, drugs and rock ’n roll never dies, it just changes clothes.”
