That '80s Show is an American television sitcom set in 1984 that aired from January to May 2002 on Fox. Even though it had a similar name, show structure, and many of the same writers and production staff, it was not a spin-off of That '70s Show. The characters and storylines from the two shows never crossed paths. It was a separate decade-based show created as a result of That '70s Show's popularity at the time. The show was cancelled after 13 episodes.
