What We Know About ‘That ‘90s Show’ Possibly Getting A Season 2

For those that were grew up watching sitcoms and teen dramas in the early 2000s, or are like me and wish they grew up watching those iconic shows, they are all too familiar with the classic sitcom, That ’70s Show, where sparks flew for Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis and their rise as a celeb power couple. After eight years on TV, the show concluded in 2006. 

With the exception of Kutcher and Kunis’ relationship, there were no updates for over a decade on That ‘70s Show. That is, though, until October 2021 when showrunners Bonnie and Terry Turner announced That ’90s Show. After much anticipation, the first season of That ’90s Show was released on Netflix on Jan. 19. Now that it’s out, all we can do is wait for a confirmation of whether we’re getting a Season 2. Until then, here’s what we know and what fans are saying. 

For those that don’t know, That ’90s Show follows Leia Forman, who is played by Callie Haverda, as she stays at her grandparents Red and Kitty’s house in Point Place for the summer. Leia wants to have the summer of her life and finds herself with a bunch of new friends — and even a potential love interest or two. There were also some iconic cameos from That ’70s Show alums, including Kunis, Kutcher, Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Wilmer Valderrama, Don Stark, Tommy Chong, and Jim Rash. That ‘90s Show is full of nostalgia from the plot to the casting. 

How does Season 1 of That ’90s Show end?

That ’90s Show is full of comedic drama just like any other sitcom. Warning: Spoilers for Season 1 of That ’90s Show follow. Season 1 ends with Leia being torn between two guys: Jay, who is revealed to be Kelso and Jackie’s son, and Nate, who is dating one of Leia’s new friends, Nikki. Things get more complicated when Leia and Nate have a moment in the kitchen and almost kiss before Gwen walks in on them. As for her storyline with Jay, he shows up and says that he’s made a huge mistake and wants their relationship to work before he kisses her. Matters of the heart are never easy, and Leia is going to learn this — if we get a Season 2. 

Are there any predictions for Season 2’s potential plot?

There are multiple ways that a potential season two could go. As we know, Leia must return to Colorado for her new school year. However, she’s bound to find herself back at Point Place at some point. Whether that’s during the Christmas time or the following summer, Leia’s going to have some tough decisions to make when it comes to her love life. 

So, are we actually getting a Season 2 of That ’90s Show?

Despite predictions for how the season could go, we don’t actually know if there’s going to be a Season 2 yet. However, it does take about a month for Netflix to look at views and statistics for their shows, so we should know if we’re getting a second season of That ‘90s Show by mid to late February. 

If fan reactions to Season 1 are any indication, though, viewers are hopeful for a second season of That ’90s Show. 

Whether you watched That ’70s Show growing up or found it somewhere along the way, That ’90s Show is a must-watch for fans of the show. If you haven’t watched That ’90s Show, stop whatever you’re doing and log into your Netflix to watch this nostalgic sitcom. Here’s to hoping it gets a second season because I can’t wait to see what adventures Leia goes on.
