It is a truth universally acknowledged that some of the best sitcoms of all time first aired nearly three decades ago. There's just something about '90s TV shows that today's television series can't compete with. Iconic outfits that still influence modern fashion? Check. Observational humor accompanied by silly laugh tracks? Got it. Cheesy romance, over-the-top family drama, and unrealistic everyday scenarios? Check, check, and check! The best '90s shows keep viewers coming back for more, even after all these years.

Beloved classics like Friends and Seinfeld can be turned on in the middle of an episode and still feel like a warm hug from a best pal. Teen comedies like Sister, Sister and Freaks and Geeks were popular among '90s babies, who were just old enough to catch them before lights out. And sitcoms like The Nanny and Will and Grace pushed the boundaries of cable television while still managing to make audiences laugh out loud.

No matter which series was your go-to back in the day, we can guarantee one thing: It's worth watching again. In fact, all of the best '90s TV shows deserve a second look in 2021—and you're in luck, because they're available to stream online. Keep reading for a rundown of all the shows from the '90s that you can stream on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and more. (Then, start planning your '90s Halloween costume!)
