Less than three years after Netflix removed the beloved sitcom That 70’s Show from its platform, the aptly titled and much-awaited sequel That ’90s Show saw its world premiere. The teen sitcom is set 15 years after the events of the first show, and it follows the misadventures of Eric Forman and Donna Pinciotti’s now-teen daughter. If you need a similar fix, I’ve put together 7 TV shows like That ’90s Show.

That ’70s Show (1998 – 2006)

As That ’90s Show is a continuation of this iconic series, it’s only natural to include it on this list. The sitcom ran for eight seasons, received an Emmy, and earned a cult-like following. While it’s no longer available on Netflix, you can stream all episodes with a Peacock subscription. 

Saved by the Bell (1989 – 1992)

Saved by the Bell also follows the misadventures of a group of teens during the 90s. However, this series was made during that decade. Created by Sam Bobrick, the show had a three-season run, and you can stream all episodes on Hulu. 

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990 – 1996)

This is the beloved NBC show that made Will Smith famous. It centered around Smith’s character, a street-smart teen who has to adapt to living with wealthy relatives after growing up in West Philadelphia. During the show’s six-season run, several well-known celebrities such as Oprah, Wayne Newton, and even Donald Trump made guest appearances. 

Community (2009 – 2015)

Community follows a tight-knit group of primarily mature college students and their hilarious adventures. Created by Dan Harmon, the series received plenty of praise and accolades and enjoyed a six-season run, and there are even rumors a full-length feature is in the works. 

Moesha (1996-2001)

Just like That ’90s Show’s Leia, the protagonist in this sitcom is a teenager trying to make sense of how she fits in the world. You can check out all six seasons of Moesha on Netflix. 

2 Broke Girls (2011 – 2017)

2 Broke Girls also centers around young people finding their place globally. The show follows two friends, played by Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs, as they’re trying to save money and start their dream business. While critics’ and fan opinions on the series are mixed, it did earn many accolades during its six-season run, including an Emmy win.  

Malcolm in the Middle (2000 – 2006)

Malcolm in the Middle is a beloved sitcom about a young boy genius and his hilariously dysfunctional family. This highly acclaimed comedy series won no less than seven Emmys during its runtime.
