Netflix Sets Premiere Date for New Comedy 'That '90s Show' Starring Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp

Netflix has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original comedy series That '90s Show - a spinoff of FOX's That '70s Show starring Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp.

All 10 episodes of the first season will be available on Thursday, January 19.

It's 1995 and Leia Forman is desperate for some adventure in her life or at least a best friend who isn't her dad. When she arrives in Point Place to visit her grandparents, Red (Smith) and Kitty (Rupp), Leia finds what she's looking for right next door when she meets the dynamic and rebellious Gwen. With the help of Gwen's friends, including her lovable brother Nate, his smart, laser-focused girlfriend Nikki, the sarcastic and insightful Ozzie, and the charming Jay, Leia realizes adventure could happen there just like it did for her parents all those years ago. Excited to reinvent herself, she convinces her parents to let her stay for the summer. With a basement full of teens again, Kitty is happy the Forman house is now a home for a new generation and Red is, well... Red.

In addition to Smith and Rupp, the comedy stars Callie Haverda, Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Maxwell Donovan, Reyn Doi and Sam Morelos.

That '70s Show creators Bonnie and Terry Turner co-created the comedy with their daughter Lindsey Turner and showrunner Gregg Mettler. All four executive produce with Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner, Jessica Goldstein and Chrissy Pietrosh.
