Because Netflix only just announced the concept for That 90s Show, it is not yet know when the TV program will actually premiere. That said, if filming begins soon, fans will likely get to see a premiere date by this time next year.

As for a trailer, that would be released a couple of months, give or take, in advance.

Although both Smith and Rupp are confirmed to have roles in the upcoming series, none of the other stars of That 70s Show have been confirmed.
