“That ’70s Show” will get a spin-off called “That ’90s Show” on Netflix. In an interview with Variety, actor Ashton Kutcher commented on what it was like to return to his character years later
“It was really nostalgic to be back on set,” Kutcher told Variety. The actor played Michael Kelso in the original series. “It’s the same people who made That ’70s Show, so it was pretty bizarre.”
Along with his wife, Mila Kunis, who is also part of the cast of the series playing Jackie Burkhart, he says that, after being invited to revive their characters, they felt that “it was the right thing to do”.
“Mila and I were contemplating it. We thought, ‘Listen, we’re only in the position that we’re in because of that show, so let’s just go back and do this. We just went back and had fun for a week”. Kutcher added that the long-awaited spin-off “is really fun” and the “new cast is phenomenal.”
“That ‘90s Show” will follow Eric Forman (Topher Grace) and Donna Pinciotti (Laura Prepon)’s daughter Leia Forman (Callie Haverda) as she visits her grandparents, Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and Red ( Kurtwood Smith), in Wisconsin.
Creators Bonnie Turner, Terry Turner and Lindsey Turner will executive produce alongside Smith, Rupp and Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner under The Carsey-Werner Company. “That ’90s Show” does not yet have a release date.
