Fans of That ‘70s Show, get ready! Netflix is coming with a spin-off to the fan-favourite sitcom, titled That ‘90s Show.
However, the trip to Eric Forman’s iconic basement will be a bit different as Topher Grace will interrupt the sessions with various dad jokes and insistent questions about the persistent odour.
Created by Mark Brazil, Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner, That ‘70s Show was a period sitcom that acted as an ode to the 1970s. It chronicled the joys, sorrows, events, fads and socio-political and economic factors of the era via the life of the high-schooler Eric Forman and his friends.
Starring Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon, Danny Masterson, Wilmer Valderrama and others, the show was a hilarious hit and focused on various plots and narratives within 1970s Wisconsin.
With most of the cast reuniting for the Netflix spin-off, Kutcher, Kunis, Prepon, Grace and Valderrama will once again be seen living in Point Place, Wisconsin, playing parents to a new generation of teens who are growing up in the ’90s, grooving to Tupac and Kurt Cobain.
However, Danny Masterson is a notable absentee from the cast. Masterson was arrested in 2020 based on rape charges and is set to stand trial this year in August.
The show will mainly revolve around Eric Forman’s daughter, Leia, who travels to Wisconsin to spend time with Forman’s parents, once again played by Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith.
While not much is known about the resuscitation of some characteristic and irreverent elements including the Circle, the ‘90s show will be equally wild, as indicated by the tagline: “sex, drugs and rock ’n roll never dies, it just changes clothes”.
Also starring Ashley Aufderheide, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Sam Morelos, Reyn Doi and Mace Coronel, this ten-episode show has already created quite the buzz among fans despite not having a fixed release date.
