That ’70s Show once had a long-time home on Netflix. Subscribers to the streaming giant could enjoy the popular sitcom anytime they turned on the TV.
However, Netflix often removes shows and movies, especially when they lose an exclusive deal with the network the show originally aired on. That happened with That ’70s Show, which left Netflix in September 2020. The good news is that it’s returning. The bad news is that it’s not coming to Netflix.
Where will That ’70s Show stream next?
It has been almost two years since That 70s Show left Netflix. Fans of the show have to be excited to see another spinoff coming with That ’90s Show, which will be exclusive to Netflix. However, despite Netflix owning the rights to the new series, the original show aired on Fox, and that network owns the rights. Fox aired That ’70s Show from 1998 until 2006, and until 2020, they licensed the rights to Netflix for its streaming home.
Despite being the third most watched show on Netflix in 2020, the streaming giant did not pick up its rights after September 2020. However, while other shows that left Netflix had homes, That ’70s Show disappeared. The only option for people who wanted to watch it was to catch reruns on cable or to buy it from Amazon. That will all change in September.
On September 1, 2022, That ’70s Show joins The Office on Peacock streaming service (via What’s On Netflix). All eight seasons will stream on the network and will give fans more reasons to get the streaming service. The service is only $4.99 a month.
When is That ’90s Show coming to Netflix?
As aforementioned, Netflix does have That ’90s Show coming to its streaming service. There is no understanding why Netflix didn’t fight to get That ’70s Show back. At least to help sell its new streaming spinoff series, but Peacock is likely to have paid more money. As for That ’90s Show, it should hit later in 2022, but there is no official release date.
That ’90s Show sees the return of That ’70s Show’s cast, with Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith returning as Kitty and Red Forman. Plus the main cast members are coming back as guest stars. This includes Topher Grace as Eric Forman, Laura Prepon as Donna Pinciotti, Mila Kunis as Jackie Burkhart, and Ashton Kutcher as Michael Kelso. Finally, Wilmer Valderrama as Fez, and Tommy Chong as Leo.
New cast members include Callie Haverda as Leia Forman, a smart, snarky teenager, Ashley Aufderheide as Gwen, and rebellious Riot Grrrl. Mace Coronel as Jay, a charming videographer, Maxwell Acee Donovan as Nate, Gwen’s brother, Reyn Doi as Ozzie, an openly gay teen, and Sam Morelos as Nikki, Nate’s girlfriend.
