It seems like every day another major streaming service announces plans to cancel successful shows or remove them from their platforms, so here’s some news to counter that: Netflix announced that it has greenlit a second season of its newest hit, That ’90s Show, according to Variety.

The series, a reboot of the popular sitcom That ’70s Show, debuted on Jan. 19, and in the two weeks since it came out, it has steadily held a spot in the Netflix Top 10 list of most-watched programs.

The That ’90s Show cast includes Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp as Red and Kitty Forman, and Callie Haverda as their granddaughter Leia, who spends an extended summer vacation with them in their Wisconsin home and makes friends with a new group of teens nearby. The show features cameos or guest appearances from nearly everyone in the That ’70s Show cast, including Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Wilmer Valderrama, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.

Decider’s Joel Keller pointed to the original That ’70s Show team as a high point of the new series, writing in his That ’90s Show review, “The creative team behind That ’70s Show is mostly back for That ’90s Show — specifically, Bonnie and Terry Turner, along with their daughter Lindsay Turner and showrunner Gregg Mettler — and it shows when it comes to scenes involving the original cast.”

Mettler released a statement about the renewal today, saying, “All of us at That ‘90s Show were beyond excited by the warm, enthusiastic response to our first season. We can’t wait to return to Point Place for another summer of laughs and surprises. Hello 1996!” per Variety.

Tracey Pakosta, Netflix’s vice president of comedy series, added, “We’re thrilled that the incredibly funny stories from Point Place, Wisconsin continue to resonate around the world, no matter the decade.”

That ’90s Show Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.
