They’re back – hanging out down the street.
Most of the original cast of That ’70s Show have officially signed on to return for the Netflix-produced sequel That ’90s Show.
Topher Grace (Eric Forman), Mila Kunis (Jackie Burkhart), Ashton Kutcher (Michael Kelso), Laura Prepon (Donna Pinciotti) and Wilmer Valderrama (Fez) are on board for the upcoming revival. Kurtwood Smith (Red) and Debra Jo Rupp (Kitty) will also reprise their iconic roles as Eric’s parents and also serve as executive producers.
The only cast member missing from the reunion is Danny Masterson (Hyde), who is currently awaiting trial on three counts of rape. He has denied the allegations.
The series stars newcomer Callie Haverda as Leia Forman, daughter of Eric and Donna.
The new show follows as Leia spends the summer with her grandparents in Point Place, Wisconsin, the gang’s hometown, where she befriends a local group of teenagers. Actors Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Reyn Doi and Sam Morelos join the new That ’90s Show crew.
Grace, 43, celebrated the news on social media by posting a photo of herself wearing a “Point Place Vikings ’77” shirt with the caption. “Yes, still fits. #hellowisconsin,” he wrote.
Valderrama, 42, confirmed the news with a cheeky video showing him opening a box that said ‘Fez’ and slipping back into a very Fez outfit. “Red? Let’s try that Amédica word again.. 😏 #HelloWisconsin. Yes, still fits…” he wrote.
Netflix ordered the 10-episode comedy in October and confirmed news of all the returning faces last week.
That ’90s Show is the latest attempt to reboot the popular show, which premiered in 1998 and ran for eight seasons. The hit show also inspired the short-lived series That ’80s Show, which ran for only one season in 2002 and made no overlaps with the original ’70s cast.
The now-iconic sitcom catapulted its stars to stardom, including on-and-off camera couple Kunis and Kutcher.
