“Hello, Wisconsin! It’s 1995 and Leia Forman, daughter of Eric and Donna, is visiting her grandparents for the summer where she bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red. Sex, drugs and rock ’n roll never dies, it just changes clothes,” reads the official synopsis.

That ’90s Show comes from the original series creators Bonnie and Terry Turner. Producers for the project are reportedly hoping that other familiar characters from That ’70s Show will make guest appearances on the new series.

Ten episodes of the series have been ordered for the multi-cam spin-off. Gregg Mettler will serve as showrunner. Bonnie and Terry Turner, Lindsey Turner, Marcy Carsey, and Tom Werner will executive produce.
