How well is That ’90s Show doing on Netflix?
So how well is the program working? Let’s dive into some of the statistics.
Thanks to Netflix’s Top 10 Hourly, we’ll be able to see how well the show performs on Netflix.
For a show like that 90s show with a shorter runtime, it’s likely to come down to how big of a drop the show sees with hours watched rather than raw numbers.
Here are the weekly hours for season 1 of that 90s show which adds up to 67.33 million hours viewed between January 15 and 29:
|week period||Hours seen (M)||Range||Week in the Top 10|
|January 15, 2023 to January 22, 2023||41,080,000||5||1|
|January 22, 2023 to January 29, 2023||26,250,000 (-36%)||4||2|
At this point, it’s worth noting that the show making the top 10 is way beyond what other similar comedy shows have managed to achieve. Blockbuster, the upshaws, and Monthfor example, they have never appeared in the top 10 on Netflix, and in the case of the last two, both have been renewed.
As a result, Netflix’s track record with comedy series hasn’t been strong in recent years, meaning the bar for renewal could be much lower.
In terms of CVE (as we covered in our January 25 Top 10 reports), the show launched with the same audience as resident Evil either the imperfect. This is not a perfect comparison, given that both shows are in different genres, and more importantly, in different budget categories.
Heading into week 2, the show was trending above canceled series file 81, First murderand Partner Tracking but a little behind Resident Evil.
looking at the raw top 10, we can see where the show is on and where it isn’t. Naturally, the show is doing better in the US and Canada, but it’s also scoring big in the Nordic countries, South Africa and Australia.
Below, you can see the points she’s managed to rack up in the top 10 since her debut on January 19 and the heat map of where the show scored the most points.
what to expect from that 90s show season 2?
When will Leia return to place point?
Leia and her parents live in Chicago, but the drive from the city to Point Place takes a few hours. This means that for Leia to spend any significant time at Point Place, she will have to wait until Christmas, Spring Break, or Summer Break. The ’90s went through a lot of different trends, so a lot can change every time Leia visits.
In an interview with Collider, Reyn Doi said that he thinks the plan would be for future seasons to be set every summer, saying, “I think his plan was to do it every season in the summer. i think they [The Turners] He said that in the interview.
Leia x Jay x Nate x Nikki
In a surprising turn of events, just before Leia left Point Place, she almost shared a kiss with Nate, Jay’s best friend and Nikki’s boyfriend. However, Nate’s sister Gwen reached out to the couple before anything happened.
Extremely confused by what just happened, Leia and Nate haven’t fully addressed the implications of how their complicated new feelings will change the group dynamic. With plenty of time to go between when we next see Leia at Point Place, this will give her plenty of time to decide whether or not she wants to be with Jay, or risk hurting Nikki to try and be with Nate.
If nothing else, on an emotional level, Leia and Nate are much better for each other than their current partners.
speaking to distractCallie Haverda (Leia on the show) said that her character would be more confident in season 2 saying:
“I think she’s going to step out of her comfort zone with the things that Gwen taught her and we’ll probably see her come back as a more confident person. She probably had even more new experiences, met new people while she was away. Yeah, I’m really excited to see what happens with her, when she comes back.”
Red rage, kitty delight
Even with Leia’s return to Chicago, Kitty has said that her friends can use the basement all they want while she’s gone, much to Red’s horror. to a new generation,
Having escaped the idiots in his basement, Red now faces a new generation of basement dwellers. We can’t wait to see the effect the new basement dwellers have on Red while Leia is away. Meanwhile, Kitty will be more than in her element as she acts as a surrogate grandmother to all of Leia’s friends.
Will we see more of Eric?
We saw a lot more of Donna than Eric in the first season. However, this was because Eric spent much of the summer at camp. Perhaps next season, we’ll see more of Eric as he tries to bond with his teenage daughter.
Who can we expect to see in the second season of that 90s show?
We’d expect most of the cast to return for season two;
- Callie Haverda as Leia
- Kurtwood Smith as Red
- Debra Jo Rupp as Kitty
- Mace Colonel as Jay
- Ashley Aufderheide as Gwen
- Sam Morelos as Nikki
- Reyn Doi as Ozzie
- Maxwell Acee Donovan as Nate
We can also see more guest appearances from the previous cast members of That 70’s Show:
- Topher Grace as Eric
- Laura Prepon as Donna
- Ashton Kutcher as Kelso
- Mila Kunis as Jackie
- Wilmer Valderrama as Fez
Because it is not That 70’s Show on netflix?
Once the third most watched sitcom on Netflix, That 70’s Show left the platform globally in September 2020. After a two-year wait, it was finally revealed in August 2022 that the sitcom had found a new streaming home, Peacock.
By the time it was announced That 70’s Show was moving to Peacock, Netflix had already been working on that 90s show for ten months, and filming was still ongoing.
It is extremely confusing that Casey-Werner, the owner of That 70’s Show, allowed Peacock to buy the streaming rights for three years when they were working on the sequel to the same series with Netflix. We’re not sure what the reasons behind the decision are, but Netflix should have thrown the kitchen sink at Casey-Werner to get back the streaming rights anyway. That 70’s Show.
So, as it stands, Netflix subscribers will need a Peacock subscription to stream. That 70’s Show.
