Netflix recently renewed That ’90s Show for a season 2. The Netflix series, which picks up around 20 years after the events of the successful sitcom That 70s Show, was confirmed for another season just a few weeks after it debuted on the streaming giant. The renewal news comes around the same time as when Ashton Kutcher revealed that his wife and co-star Mila Kunis refused to let him turn down a role in the new series.
Series co-creator, executive producer, and showrunner Gregg Mettler recently shared the renewal news in a statement. Mettler said in the statement, “All of us at That ’90s Show were beyond excited by the warm, enthusiastic response to our first season.” He added, “We can’t wait to return to Point Place for another summer of laughs and surprises. Hello 1996!”
Season two will contain a time jump and take place a year after the events of season one. It was also announced that the new season would contain 16 episodes, while the first only had 10. That ’90s Show debuted on Netflix on January 19 and reached Netflix’s Top 10 English TV list in 35 countries, with more than 41 million hours viewed.

Season one also sees many of the stars of That ’70s Show, including Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Wilmer Valderrama. Meanwhile, the official plot synopsis for the show reads, “Leia Forman, played by Callie Haverda, 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.
The synopsis continues, “With the help of Gwen’s friends, including her lovable brother Nate (Maxwell Acee Donovan), his smart, laser-focused girlfriend Nikki (Sam Morelos), the sarcastic and insightful Ozzie (Reyn Doi), and the charming Jay (Mace Coronel), Leia realizes adventure could happen there just like it did for her parents all those years ago.”
