Does Netflix have a long-weekend hangover? This week's list of what's new on Netflix is a decidedly two-day affair.
The big release of the week is Thursday's That '90s Show. And, before you even consider it, this isn't That 80's Show Part II. This is a direct sequel of sorts to That 70's Show.
Yes, the Forman family in Point Place, WI is back — and this time we're dealing with the generation of Kitty and Red's grand-daughter, Leia Forman. Yes, Eric and Donna, in the two decades between the shows, had a daughter. And, unsurprisingly, she's named after the bun-haired princess of Alderaan. The series finds teenage Leia visiting her grandparents (Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith are back) for the summer, and meeting the new kids on that block.
And, in order to make sure the original show's audience watches, the basement hounds of the original series will cameo. So expect Eric and Donna, Jackie and Kelso, and even Fez (who is now a hairdresser). Donna's father Bob is also there.
So, let's get down to a day-by-day breakdown of what's new on Netflix this week!
