Netflix just found their young stars of That 90s Show, a sequel to the hit sitcom That 70s Show.
Erik, Donna, Hyde, Fez, Jackie and of course Kelso may be all gone now that the gang’s all grown up. A lot has changed over two decades – don’t ask about what happened during the 80s, we don’t talk about that.
Now, welcome to That 90s Show, and get ready to meet Point Place’s newest band of lovable troublemakers. They’re all here to tell not just Wisconsin, but the world, hello.
Who Joins That 90s Show?
The new ensemble of That 90s Show will be comprised of six teenage friends in Point Place, Wisconsin. They’re led by Leia Forman, daughter of Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon), notable That 70s Show alumni.
Callie Haverda (Shut Eye) will be playing Leia, with Ashley Aufderheide (Emergence), Mace Coronel (Colin in Black & White), Maxwell Acee Donovan (Gabby Duran & The Unsittables), Reyn Doi (Side Hustle), and Sam Morelos cast as new teen characters opposite fellow series regulars Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp who will be reprising their That ’70s Show roles as Red Forman and Kitty Forman, respectively.
According to Deadline, original That 70s Show cast members, including Grace, Prepon, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, are in negotiations to recur in That 90s Show. It has been given a 10-episode order.
Official Synopsis of That 90s Show
Hello, Wisconsin! It’s 1995 and Leia Forman, daughter of Eric and Donna, is visiting her grandparents for the summer, where she bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red. Sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll never dies, it just changes clothes.
Ashley Aufderheide (she/her; Emergence, Four Kids and It) as Gwen. Life gets more interesting for Leia when she meets this Riot Grrrl. Equal parts loyalty, rebellion and heart, Gwen is a dynamic powerhouse and the unofficial leader of the new generation of Point Place kids. Love Gwen. Fear her. Follow her.
Callie Haverda (she/her; The Lost Husband, Shut Eye) as Leia Forman. Smart like her mom, snarky like her dad, Leia is craving adventure. She’s just not quite sure where or how to start. Until she discovers a best friend in the most unlikely of places: next door to her grandparents’ house in Point Place.
Mace Coronel (he/him; Pocket, Wireless, Colin in Black & White) as Jay. Jay is charming and flirty – at least, he tries. It doesn’t always come outright. When he’s not hanging out with his best friend Nate or working at the local video store, he’s armed with a video camera and the whole world is his film set.
Maxwell Acee Donovan (he/him; Gabby Duran & The Unsittables) as Nate. The polar opposite of his little sister, Gwen. Nate takes life as it comes, usually with a big open smile. He lets the gang ride in his van because there’s always something fun on the other side of the drive. He loves his family, his girlfriend, and Garth Brooks.
Reyn Doi (he/him; Barb and Star Go-To Vista Del Mar, Side Hustle, Drama Club) as Ozzie. Everyone loves them some Ozzie. He’s insightful, sarcastic, and has perspective beyond his years. Ozzie is gay and impatient with the world for not being as accepting as his friends.
Sam Morelos (she/her) as Nikki. Nikki is focused, smart, and driven. From the outside, you could easily see her becoming a doctor or a lawyer. But inside, she has more rebellion than a frustrated debutante and her boyfriend Nate can scratch that itch.
As I mentioned earlier, the That 90s Show teens will be joining returning veterans, Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp as Red and Kitty Forman.
Kurtwood Smith as Red. A classic never goes out of style. When the new kids bring out the old Red, the spring in Red’s step puts a spring in Kitty’s too!
Debra Jo Rupp as Kitty. A whole new world opens to Kitty with the new generation and she is right at home. It has never been cooler to be Kitty.
