‘That 70s Show’ Cast Set to Make a Comeback in ‘That 90s Show’

At the recent Netflix Is A Joke comedy festival, the streaming platform made public its latest endeavor – a contemporary revival of the beloved sitcom, That 70s Show. Given that the new series unfolds two decades following the conclusion of its predecessor, it has fittingly been dubbed That 90s Show.

Accompanying the announcement of the show, Netflix disclosed their triumphant negotiations that led to the majority of the original ensemble agreeing to return. This includes Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Wilmer Valderrama, Kurtwood Smith, and Debra Jo Rupp. The sole exception confirmed to be absent from the revival is Danny Masterson, who portrayed Hyde, due to current allegations of multiple sexual assault incidents that he faces.

Whilst the entirety of the initial cast is making a comeback, Smith and Rupp are slated to be regular characters, reprising their roles as Red and Kitty Forman. The other cast members from the original series will make guest appearances sporadically throughout the new show. That 90s Show centers around Leia Forman, daughter of Eric and Donna, portrayed by Callie Haverda, as she spends her summer in the 90s visiting her grandparents. During her stay, she encounters the offspring of the other members of the Point Place group, all under the watchful eyes of Red and Kitty.

The series has been approved for a 10-episode stint on Netflix, with an exact premiere date still pending. The original show’s creators, Bonnie and Terry Turner, along with their daughter Lindsey Turner, are leading as head writers and executive producers. Interestingly, this marks the second endeavor at resurrecting That 70s Show, after Fox’s short-lived run of That 80s Show in 2002, which was axed after just one season due to poor ratings.
