How to watch That '90s Show
The anticipated Netflix spin-off series is here, but how can we all watch it?
Hit sitcom That '70s Show has been given the spin-off treatment in Netflix's latest comedy series, That '90s Show. The iconic throwback series helped launch the career of actors like Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, and this time round, it has welcomed in a cast of new faces.
Set in 1995, the new 10-part series follows Leia Forman (Callie Haverda), the daughter of Eric and Donna from the original series, as she visits her grandparents in Point Place for the summer.
She bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red. As the synopsis states: "Sex, drugs and rock ’n roll never dies, it just changes clothes."
