Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama are all set to reprise their That 70s Show characters for That 90s Show.
Most of That 70s Show cast are set to return for the Netflix spinoff series, That 90s Show. That 70s Show starred Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Danny Masterson, Wilmer Valderrama, and Laura Prepon as six teenagers living in the fictional town of Point Place, Wisconsin from 1976 – 1979. The show also starred Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp as Red and Kitty Forman, the parents of Grace’s Eric Forman, who were previously announced to be starring in the spinoff series, That 90s Show. That 70s Show started airing in 1998 and ran for 8 seasons through 2006.
Much has already been revealed about That 90s Show, including a peek at the updated basement set (where much of the drama and action took place in That 70s Show). The story will revolve around Eric and Donna’s daughter, Leia Forman, played by Callie Haverda, who visits her grandparents for the summer, bonding with a new generation of Point Place kids under the care of Kitty and Red. The show is being written and executive produced by original That 70s Show creators Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner and their daughter Lindsey Turner, as well as Gregg Mettler, who serves as showrunner.
Now, That 90s Show is set to bring back the majority of the original cast of That 70s Show, including Grace, Kunis, Valderrama, Kutcher, and Prepon, who will all reprise their characters for the spinoff (per Variety). Their appearances are being billed as guest appearances, so it’s unclear how much (or how little) they’ll be involved in the 10-episode first season. The only actor not returning will be Masterson, who is currently about to stand trial for multiple sexual assault allegations.
The new cast of That 90s Show (in addition to Haverda) will include Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Reyn Doi, and Sam Morelos, who will all comprise the new group of six friends bonding in a new era. Filming on the show began in February at Netflix’s headquarters in Los Angeles in front of a live audience and is expected to debut sometime in 2022 on the streamer. Currently, That 70s Show is not streaming on any platform, unless purchased via Prime Video.
TV show revivals have become a trend in recent years, as numerous shows have found that audiences are eager to revisit the characters they grew up with, now at an older age. Fuller House, Cobra Kai, and How I Met Your Father are just a few successful examples of this trend, which doesn’t appear to be dying down anytime soon. That 90s Show will no doubt pull in viewers, who now have even more incentive to see how Eric, Donna, Jackie, Kelso, and Fez have grown up (not to mention more of Red and Kitty). With so much love existing for these characters and the desire to return to a place that supplied years and years of entertainment, That 90s Show has a great head start in recapturing the magic of That 70s Show, as well as introducing a whole new generation to it.
