Netflix’s That 90’s show dropped this week on the streaming platform. The series is a spin-off of “that 70’s show” released in 1998. Netflix has not announced anything about season 2 of the series yet. However, Netflix is looking for a hit sitcom after the success of “The Ranch” starring Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson.
The spin-off show is created by the original creators Gregg Mettler, Bonnie Turner, Lindsey Turner, and Terry Turner. That 90’s show follows Leia Forman and her stay in Point Place, WI when she visits her grandparents Kitty and Red.
It is too early to say anything about the renewal status of the series. Also, Netflix has canceled many sitcoms in the past so it all depends on viewership. Also, the series is trending in the top 10 on Netflix and also received a good score of 72% on rotten tomatoes.
But, If Netflix decides to renew the show for season 2, it might hit the streaming platform in January 2024.
