Hulu is making the week starting March 8 "'90s Week" by bringing iconic teen dramas Felicity and My So-Called Life to the streaming service on March 9 and March 11 respectively according to Entertainment Weekly. On March 8, the sitcom Blossom will also be brought to the platform.

These premieres are intended to be a runway of sorts to the premiere of Kid 90, a Hulu original documentary directed and produced by Soleil Mon Frye, which will be available on March 12. Frye originated the titular role of Punky Brewster in the '80s NBC sitcom, and as her career got started at the age of 8, she "carried a video camera everywhere she went." The documentary "presents a true time capsule of a group of friends growing up in Hollywood and New York City in the '90s, balancing childhood and fame pre-internet and social media." Frye has reprised her role as Punky Brewster in the recent Peacock revival, which again has the same name. Kid 90 also stars David Arquette, Jenny Lewis, Will Smith, Mark Wahlberg, and Mario Lopez.

For readers who were not '90s kids, Felicity was an ABC drama co-created by J. J. Abrams and Matt Reeves about a sheltered shy girl, Felicity Porter (Keri Russell), who "finds out what life on her own is following her high-school graduation." The short-lived cult classic My So-Called Life was another ABC teen drama, which only ran for 19 episodes. The series, which launched the careers of Claire Danes (Homeland), Jared Leto (Suicide Squad), and Wilson Cruz (Star Trek: Discovery) among others, dealt with major social issues of the mid-'90s through the lives of high schoolers in a fictional suburb near Pittsburgh.

Blossom, a much more light-hearted show than the others Hulu is bringing back, is largely remembered for Joey Lawrence's catchphrase, or catch-word, "Whoa!" and Jenna von Oÿ's huge hats. The show was a sitcom starring Mayim Bialik as Blossom Russo, a teenager living with her father and two elder brothers--in the '90s, that loose framework was enough to sustain a TV series for 114 episodes.
