That '90s Show, now available to stream on Netflix, is well aware of the fact that the 90s were a remarkable decade for pop culture.

A sequel/spin-off to That '70s Show, That '90s Show revolves around Leia Forman, a teenager who spends the summer in Point Place, Wisconsin.

She's Donna and Eric's daughter and she's reconnecting with grandparents Red and Kitty. In other words, fans of the original will see a few familiar faces when they tune in.
