Remember the ’90s? Sure you do. It was the decade of Crystal Pepsi, Sonic the Hedgehog, and most of all, the teen drama. Beverly Hills 90210 recently got a revival, so it’s only natural that Party of Five get one too.

This reboot will mimic the premise of the original with one serious political twist: instead of being orphaned, the Acosta children will navigate their struggles after their parents are deported back to Mexico. An aspiring musician and eldest Acosta child Emilio must do his best to keep the family together, while his siblings Beto, Lucia, and Valentina find a way to make it on their own while trying to get their parents back.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch Party of Five.

Freeform is available on a handful of the major live TV streaming services. When trying to decide which one is best for you, you’ll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you’ll get, and the compatible devices for streaming.

You’ll also gain access to the usual cable mainstays like Food Network, Discovery, Cartoon Network, SYFY, and FXX. Here’s the complete guide to Sling TV channels.

YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts. Each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR. There are sports channels like NBCSN, NBA TV, and four ESPN channels. Disney, Disney XD, Disney Junior, and Cartoon Network will keep any kid (or kid at heart) busy for hours. It also comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are there too, so you won’t miss out on all that prestige TV.
