The pilot episode of That '90s Show is set to air 15 years after the series conclusion of That 70's Show, and it seems worth the wait due to its high response rate.
According to Forbes, 1.7 million households saw the first episode of the new series during the three-day viewing window since its premiere on 19 January 2023. This number is comparable to the first-day release of the Netflix hit Harry & Meghan series. That '90s show is especially popular among millennial viewers, with an 88% index for adults aged 25 to 45 years old.
Many claim the series to be half-baked compared to That 70's Show due to Rotten Tomatoes.
Debra Jo Rupp (Kitty Forman) and Kurtwood Smith (Red Forman) — all of whom played grandparents, made special guests appearances. Danny Masterson, better known as Hyde, is the only principal cast of the That 70's Show who did not appear due to legal actions against him.
Callie Haverda (Leia Forman), Mace Coronel (Jay Kelso), Reyn Doi (Ozzie), Ashley Aufderheide (Gwen) and Sam Morelos (Nikki) make their first TV appearance.
As grandparents and their granddaughter, Leia Forman travel to Point Place, Wisconsin for the summer to spend the summer bonding with the new kids under the watchful eyes of Kitty and the sharp glare of Red Forman.
Netflix has launched a streaming version of the 1990s show and it includes ten episodes in Season 1.
Watch the official teaser below to see why Red and Kitty's Forman lives to be filled with joy or fear, for Red, especially.
