Will That ’90s Show have the same theme song as That ’70s Show?
That ’70s Show used Big Star‘s “In the Street”—recorded as “That ’70s Song” by Cheap Trick after season one—as the show’s theme song. For That ’90s Show, showrunner Gregg Mettler knew they needed something more, well, ’90s!
So, according to Variety, he recorded a ’90s-tinged demo version of “In the Street” with his daughter on backing vocals. He gave that to Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, who served as the composer on That ‘90s Show, who worked some magic. And thus, a new theme song was created.
“I love all the music from the 90s, all the genres, and we try our best to weave them all into the show,” Mettler said. “And so, there’s something for everybody inside the show.”
Who from That ’70s Show will appear on That ’90s Show?
We saved the best for last.
In May, Netflix announced that That ’90s Show will feature cameos from Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Wilmer Valderrama, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.
While specific details about their involvement—including when they’ll show up—remain top-secret, Kunis let a little tidbit slip
“My husband and I are together in it, which is weird because we shouldn’t have been,” she told Access Hollywood in October. “My character would be with Fez. Also, Kelso was married at the end of That’s ’70s Show. Now we are married with a kid [on the show]. It is very cute.”
Watch all of the nostalgia unfold when That ’90s Show drops Jan. 19 on Netflix.
