It has been nearly 25 years since the premiere of "That '70s Show," and fans of the beloved sitcom have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the spinoff series, "That '90s Show." Finally, the long-awaited trailer has arrived, revealing that the original cast of the series has reunited for the new 10-episode Netflix series.
Set in the summer of 1995, "That '90s Show" follows the daughter of Eric and Donna Forman, Leia (played by Callie Haverda), as she explores the quirky town of Point Place and visits her grandparents, Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and Red (Kurtwood Smith).
Rupp and Smith, who are now 71 and 79 respectively, will reprise their roles from the original series. The trailer also gives fans a glimpse into the Forman household, which remains unchanged from the original series and is appropriately decorated for the mid-90s setting.
Topher Grace and Laura Prepon will return as Eric and Donna, with guest appearances from Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, and Wilmer Valderrama also expected.
Mila Kunis, one of the stars of the original "That '70s Show," recently spoke to TODAY about the upcoming spinoff series, "That '90s Show," set to premiere on Netflix in January 2023.
Kunis expressed surprise at the direction the new series has taken, stating that she had originally assumed she would be paired with Wilmer Valderrama's character, Fez, in the spinoff. However, the show's producers informed her that this would be too strange for audiences, and instead Kunis' character will be with Ashton Kutcher's character in the new series.
“When (the spinoff) was presented to us, I was like, ‘So clearly I’m going to be with Fez,’ because I remember ending the show with Wilmer’s character," she said. "And they’re like, ‘Well, that’s too weird for audiences, so now you and Ashton are together,’ and I was like, ‘That’s even weirder.'
" In addition to the returning cast members, "That '90s Show" will also introduce several new faces, including Callie Haverda, Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Reyn Doi, and Sam Morelos. Fans of the original series can look forward to seeing these new characters and the reunion of the original cast when "That '90s Show" debuts on Netflix on January 19, 2023.
