The sequel to the fan beloved comedy That ’70s Show, Netflix’s That ’90s Show, is already in production, and the future season has added even more original returning talent. According to Deadline, with the exception of Danny Masterson, the sequel will feature the whole original youthful ensemble of That ’70s Show.
Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama will all reprise their original roles in what is billed as a “legacy cast making special guest appearances,” according to the article. The actors join fellow That ’70s Show stars Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp on That ’90s Show as series stars and executive producers. Netflix has also published a first peek at the series, which can be viewed here.
Valderrama, who portrayed foreign exchange student Fez on That ’70s Show, had previously stated his support for the sequel series, saying that while he was “a bit busy” to feature, it was something he’d never turn down.
“I’m a little busy now, but I support them so much,” Valderrama said. “I’m rooting for them. I wish them nothing but the best. And if the timing is right, I’d never say no.”
That ’70s Show originally aired on Fox from 1998 to 2006. That ’90s Show is actually the second spinoff for the series which also spawned the short-lived That ’80s Show in 2002. It aired for just one season for a total of 13 episodes on Fox and was a spin-off largely in structure alone.
