That ‘90s Show created quite a splash when it premiered on Netflix last month and there’s more where that came from! The streaming giant announced they renewed the sequel of the beloved sitcom That ’70s Show for its second season.

That ‘90s Show takes place almost two decades after the original show, and it centers on the teen daughter of Eric Forman and Donna Pinciotti, Leia Forman. She spends the summer of 1995 with her grandparents Red and Kitty in Point Place and strikes up a friendship with a group of local teens during her visit.

The show’s young cast includes Callie Haverda, Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Reyn Doi, Sam Morelos, and Maxwell Acee Donovan, but we also got to see a few familiar faces along the way. Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp were members of the main cast, while saw Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama made guest appearances.

Gregg Mettler, the show’s co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer, confirmed its renewal in an official statement, saying they’re beyond excited by the warm, enthusiastic response to their first season. Co-creator Lindsey Turner credited the fans, old and new, for the show’s success and said they “can’t wait to be there with them in the second season.”
