If Kelso and Jackie getting together in real life wasn't good enough, the news has broken that That 70's Show is making an incredible comeback with a spin-off series, That 90's Show. Essentially, 20 years down the line, we will be witnessing what Kelso, Fez, and Eric have been getting up to - and Ashton has lots to say on the matter...
But first - let's head back down to the Forman basement, where it all began. Back in 1998, the iconic cast got together on FOX to bring us a comedy that told the stories of young teens in the '70s - a series filled with bell bottoms, high-waisted jeans, and disco fever. Just 8 seasons later, audiences fell in love with the dysfunctional relationships between Kelso (Ashton Kutcher), Jackie (Mila Kunis), and the gang. With great support, creators Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner got "the green light" from Netflix to release a "10-episode spinoff." We can almost hear the sly complaints from Red Forman and the revving engine of the Vista Cruiser!
In a recent interview with ET's Lauren Zima, Kutcher revealed his take on the Wisconsin spin-off. To our surprise, Kutcher described his experience back on set as "super nostalgic and weird," and we can't blame him! Almost lost for words, Kutcher confirmed he and his current wife, Mila Kunis - who plays/played Jackie on the show - were contemplating it for a while. When it comes to spin-offs, there is always the underlying concern: it might not come close to the original. However, while most of the cast members continued to take on new roles, we are sure not to be disappointed by their comedic comeback and some potential new cast members! Confirmed, the Point Place pack, including Mila Kunis (Jackie), Topher Grace (Eric), Laura Prepon (Donna), and iconic character Fez played by Wilmer Valderrama, will be making a return.
While cast members won't be giving too much away prior to its release, we know the spin-off will kick off where they left off - back in Point Place, but this time, it's 1995. It's a whole new generation from disco fever to "peace, prosperity," and the rise of pop culture. We can only wonder how the characters we all know and love will be, 90's style. So stay tuned - and stay groovy!
