Prepare to pack your bags and spend the summer in Point Place, Wisconsin. Netflix has officially confirmed that the second season of That '90s Show will make its debut in summer 2024. While it had been assumed that Leia and her friends would be back with more misadventures sometime this year, Netflix hadn't told us exactly when. Now we know it's in the summertime!
The streamer made the announcement of the That '90s Show season 2 release window on Feb. 1, when a generous handful of other movies and series were teased in the reveal of the year's forthcoming release slate. Thankfully, the That '70s Show spinoff series made the cut for this year, as a handful of fan-favorite shows ended up pushed for release in 2025.
That '90s Show first premiered on Netflix in January 2023 and landed a renewal for a second season the following month. The renewal was good news in and of itself, but Netflix ordered six extra episodes for season 2, bringing the season's episode count to 16 episodes. Obviously, with a large episode count that could be easily split down the middle, that speculation exists.
However, as of this writing in February, Netflix has neither confirmed a potential two-part season split nor an official release date. Given the lack of updates on the series in the past few months, spurred by the dual Hollywood labor strikes, the fact that we know now that the summer months will be filled with laughs care of That '90s Show, that's enough news for now. But we still can't wait to know more!
In the first season, That '90s Show featured guest appearances from each of the main That '70s Show cast members: Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Wilmer Valderrama. Prepon and Valderrama each appeared in multiple episodes. It's unclear which of these cast members will make an appearance in season 2, though Grace and Prepon could be safe bets given they are the parents of the show's main character.
Honestly, the spinoff really doesn't need any cameos from the original sitcom's cast anymore. By the end of the season, the new cast of teens had bonded and formed a chemistry that will likely see them soar in season 2. Hopefully, the second season takes advantage of the strengths of its main cast and doesn't rely too, too much on the nostalgia factor of its sire series.
When we last left Leia in That '90s Show, she found herself in a romantic pickle between Kelso and Jackie's son son Jay Kelso and her best friend and neighbor's half-brother Nate. She left Point Place to go home to Chicago for the school with the promise to return the following summer, and she will definitely have quite the mess to clean up when she gets back to Red and Kitty's house. Who else can't wait to see the state of this friend group in season2?
