If you were one of the pop culture consumers sitting around waiting for a sequel to the late-'90s-early-aughts sitcom "That '70s Show," congratulations:

Your time has come round at last.

Netflix has ordered "That '90s Show," a spinoff of the hit Fox sitcom "That '70s Show," Variety has learned.

Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp, who played parents Red and Kitty Forman in the original series, are set to return in "That '90s Show." Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of the show, which will be a multi-cam sitcom like the original.

In the new series, it's 1995 and Leia Forman, daughter of Eric and Donna, is visiting her grandparents for the summer where she bonds with a new generation of Point Place, WI, kids under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red.

Now, if you weren't looking to get a reboot of "That '70s Show," you're likely asking yourself one question right about now:

And it's a great question! But it doesn't matter. Because as we know, seemingly 95% of pop culture media produced these days is a reboot. That's all anyone seems interested in making.

This is the state of our pop culture these days. And though it is considered gauche to use the same GIF twice in the same post, at this point it seems warranted:

In any event, we're looking forward to the future reboot of "That 2010s Show" premiering in 2040!
