Much to the fans of the beloved sitcom That 70s Show, Netflix is coming with a spin-off titled That 90s Show which is set in the 90s and will see the iconic Eric Forman, played by Topher Grace, as a father cracking obnoxious dad jokes and insistently questioning the persistent odour.
Created by Mark Brazil, Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner, That ‘70s Show was a period sitcom that acted as an ode to the 1970s.
It chronicled the joys, sorrows, events, fads and socio-political and economic factors of the era via the life of the high-schooler Eric Forman and his friends.
That 90s Show will deal with the 90s generation, notably Forman’s daughter. With ten 30-minute episodes, the show has immense buzz among viewers despite not having a fixed release date.
Here is everything we know about Netflix’s upcoming spin-off That 90s Show:
