Give it 20.” Another social media user wrote, “I thought I wasn't going to like the new cast, but they were surprisingly charming and hilarious.

Can't wait.” Another user tweeted, “The only good thing Netflix has done for us in the last 6 months.”

How did Season 1 of 'That 90s Show' end?
The first season of ‘That 90s Show’ saw Leia Forman returning to Point Place to spend her summer holidays with her grandparents. As time progresses, she meets a group of friends to start a new chapter in her life. However, things got pretty weird in the concluding moments of Season 1 and ended with Leia perilously close to kissing neighbor Nate before heading back to Chicago for the school year.

Well, things are getting pretty interesting in Point Place and we are surely returning to what’s going to happen and how Red & Kitty will be handling the upcoming situations.
