Kitty and Red Forman will soon be back on the small screen thanks to Netflix. The streaming giant has indeed just ordered a sequel to the cult sitcom That ’70s Show, fifteen years after the series ended on FOX.

Entitled That ’90s Show, the 10-episode series will take place in 1995 in Wisconsin and will follow Leia Forman, the daughter of Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon) as she visits her grandparents for the summer. She will befriend a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and the stern gaze of Red (Kurtwood Smith).

In addition to returning to their iconic roles, Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp will be executive producers. Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner, the creators of the original series, will also be on board as will Gregg Mettler, writer and producer of That ’70s Show.

According to information from Deadline, the idea of a That ’70s Show sequel has been in development for several years and Netflix was quickly interested in the project due to the ratings of the original series when it was available on its platform.

As of now, no air date has been announced and we don’t know if any other actors from the original series will make an appearance in That ’90s Show. In the cast of That ’70s Show was, in addition to the actors mentioned above, Ashton Kutcher (Kelso), Mila Kunis (Jackie), Danny Masterson (Hyde), Wilmer Valderrama (Fez) or Don Stark (Bob).
