Those of you who still miss the days of must-see TV are in luck, because the '90s are alive and well on network television once again! ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW have tapped some of your favorite '90s stars to headline new shows premiering later this year, so grab your pogs, your slap bracelet, and check them out below!
Conviction (ABC) -This show is goldmine when it comes to actors you haven't thought about in years. Shawn Ashmore (Animorphs) and Eddie Cahill (Tag from Friends) star in this drama about a first daughter (Hayley Atwell) who gets blackmailed into helping the D.A. (Cahill) overturn wrongful convictions. And while she isn't technically a '90s star, Conviction gets bonus points for also staring Alias' Merrin Dungey.
Imaginary Mary (ABC) -Probably the craziest sounding new show this year, Imaginary Mary stars Dharma & Greg's Jenna Elfman as a woman who begins talking to her imaginary friend (voiced by Rachel Dratch) after meeting the love of her life.
Lethan Weapon (Fox) -Fox already has Damon Wayans Jr. on New Girl, and now the network has nabbed Damon Wayans Sr. The In Living Color star plays Murtaugh in this Lethal Weapon adaptation, about a gruff, old cop who gets a young partner with nothing to lose (Clayne Crawford).
Marlon (NBC) -There's a real Wayans family resurgence happening right now. Marlon Wayans stars in his own semi-autobiographical sitcom as an internet celebrity trying to co-parent with his ex-wife (Essence Atkins).
Man with a Plan (CBS) -CBS is now the only network that can boast two Friends. Matt LeBlanc stars as a contractor who gets a crash-course in parenting when he becomes a stay-at-home dad. He's basically Joey all grown up, which is fine by us.
Notorious (ABC) -Kevin Zegers, who will forever be the kid from Air Bud, co-stars in this drama about the complicated relationship between a criminal defense attorney (Daniel Sunjata) and a cable news producer (Piper Perabo).
Pitch (Fox) -Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Ali Larter, together at last, said somebody, somewhere, probably. The Saved By the Bell and Varsity Blues actors star in this drama about Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury), the first woman to play Major League Baseball.
Pure Genius (CBS) -Dylan McDermot had American Horror Story, and now Dermot Mulroney has Pure Genius. The My Best Friend's Wedding star plays a surgeon who teams up with a tech titan (Augustus Prew) to create a modern approach to medicine.
Riverdale (CW) -This show is so ridiculous, you're going to think we made it up. Luke Perry (90210), Cole Sprouse (Friends) and Madchen Amick (Twin Peaks) star in this dark adaptation of the Archie comics. And in case you were wondering, Ben Geller is playing Jughead and Dylan McKay is playing Archie's dad because, sure, why not?
Shots Fired (Fox) -Remember when people really loved Helen Hunt? If you long for that time, then this event series may be for you! Hunt stars in this drama about the fallout from a black cop shooting a white man in Tennessee. Not exactly the wacky romcom vibes of Mad About You, but we doubt any Hunt-heads will mind. (That is what Helen Hunt fans are called, aren't they?)
Speechless (ABC) -1997 was Minnie Driver's year. She starred in Good Will Hunting, Grosse Pointe Blank and voiced a lead character in the English version of Princess Mononoke. Now, nearly 20 years later, Driver is headlining a family sitcom about a brash mother of three, one of whom has cerebral palsy.
Star (Fox) -For Lee Daniels' Empire follow-up, about a girl group trying to make it big, the producer cast a handful of unknowns and some major '90s stars. So if you've ever wanted to see Queen Latifah and Benjamin Bratt play love interests, you won't want to miss Star. Plus, Lenny Kravitz will also guest-star in the first episode, and who doesn't want to see that?
Still Star-Crossed (ABC) -There are never enough Buffy alums on TV. So the fact that Giles himself, Anthony Head, is starring in Shonda Rhimes' Shakespearean drama, about what happened after Romeo and Juliet died, has us stoked.
This Is Us (NBC) -This show is tailor-made for millennials. Mandy Moore stars in this drama about a group of characters who are all turning 36 on the same day. And while the show is definitely giving us Parenthood vibes, the real pull is that it stars Moore and Milo Ventimiglia (who graciously bares his butt in the trailer).
Training Day (CBS) -Titanic, Twister, Apollo 13 — Bill Paxton starred in some of the biggest movies of the '90s. Now, he's about to star in a television adaptation of Training Day as a morally questionable detective who partners up with an idealistic young officer (Justin Cornwell).
Trial & Error (NBC) -When it comes to '90s sitcoms, 3rd Rock from the Sun doesn't get the credit it deserves. Now, John Lithgow is returning to broadcast comedy to remind us of everything we've been missing out on. Lithgow stars as quirky professor who's accused of murdering his wife. Sounds hilarious, right?
