26 '90s Shows & Movies To Watch On Netflix Right Now

Netflix is the unrivaled hub of '90s nostalgia, brimming over with 1990s movies and TV shows that epitomize (or just so happened to be made in) the time period between 1990 and 1999. Whether you were a child in the '90s and most of your media came from PBS, or you were an adult consuming critically acclaimed Oscar winners (and the occasional raunchy comedy), there are tons of relics available on the streaming platform and a few nostalgic modern reboots as well.

It’s fun, and often educational, to go back and watch media that seems simultaneously so recent and so distant. Some of the offerings are dated, and occasionally offensive. Others hold up surprisingly well and even offer insight into our modern era. The sitcoms, cinematic classics, and educational programs that '90s kids will remember watching in school offer a glimpse into what often seems like a simpler time. Whether you enjoy taking a look back for warm fuzzies or for some gentle mockery, there are lots of '90s offerings available on Netflix for all kinds of former '90s kids and adults. Here are 27 movies and TV shows from the decade available on Netflix that you can watch right now.
