Eric, Donna, & More Of The OG Gang Make Cameos In The That ’90s Show Trailer

“Damn, Jackie!”

Originally Published: 

A new generation will be sharing smokes and talking about sex in Red and Kitty’s basement in That ‘90s Show — and there are going to be some epic ‘90s-style burns. (Talk to the hand, baby!). This is Netflix original series is a spinoff from the iconic That ‘70s Show, which ran from 1998 to 2006 with eight seasons and 200 episodes. If you enjoyed watching the friendship between Eric (Topher Grace), Donna (Laura Prepon), Hyde (Danny Masterson), Kelso (Ashton Kutcher), Jackie (Mila Kunis), and Fez (Wilmer Valderrama), then you’re going to love catching up with their kids in 1995.

Check out the official trailer for That ‘90s Show

Fans have been eager to see how this updated version of the series will look — what are our favorite ‘70s teens going to look like as 30-something parents?! They got an answer on Dec. 22 when the official trailer dropped. It featured not just Eric and Donna’s daughter Leia (because of course he convinced her to name their child after the tough-as-nails space princess) but Eric and Donna themselves as well as Red, Kitty, Fez, Jackie, Kelso, and Foto Hut owner Leo. And while the times they have a-changed, it would appear that teenagers really don’t, because this new generation is giving us some serious OG gang vibes...

Hello Wisconsin!

That ‘90s Show picks up 15 years after That ‘70s Show.

That ‘70s Show ended on the last day of 1979, when Eric and Kelso come home and the gang reminisces about their favorite parts of the decade (Star Wars! Climbing the water tower!). At the end of the series, Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and Red Forman (Kurtwood Smith) decide not to move to Florida, and That ‘90s Show will return to their home in Point Place, Wisconsin. It picks up in 1995, when Leia visits her grandparents for the summer and hangs out with local teenagers under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red.

“Sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll never dies, it just changes clothes,” the official logline reads.

That ‘90s Show cast will introduce us to six new kids.

Smith and Rupp are executive producers on That ‘90s Show, and they will also be reprising their roles as Red and Kitty. The show will also star Ashley Aufderheide as Gwen, Callie Haverda as Leia, Mace Coronel as Jay, Maxwell Acee Donovan as Nate, Reyn Doi as Ozzie, and Sam Morelos as Nikki.

Most members of the legacy cast members are returning.

As we can see in the trailer, fans of That ‘70s Show are in for a treat, because other key members of the legacy cast will also be making special guest appearances on That ‘90s Show! We’re especially excited to see how IRL spouses Kunis and Kutcher, who are now married with two children, will be portrayed on screen. It’s going to be so cool seeing how their dynamic will play out on the new show, especially since That ‘70s Show ended after Kelso became a dad with another woman and Jackie started dating Fez. The drama!

Masterson, who played Hyde, will not be returning. He was recently acquitted in a sexual assault trial, where he faced a maximum of 45 years to life in prison after being charged with three counts of rape in June 2020. Masterson’s attorney, Tom Mesereau, told Deadline in a statement that the actor denies the allegations. “The people who know Mr. Masterson know his character and know the allegations to be false,” Mesereau said at the time the charges were filed.

There will be 10 episodes.

Season 1 of That ‘90s Show will be a multi-cam show with 10 episodes. If it’s successful, hopefully it will be renewed for another season, unlike its predecessor, That ‘80s Show.

It has the same executive producers as That ‘70s Show.

That ‘70s Show creators Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner (and their daughter Lindsay Turner) writers and executive producers of That ‘90s Show. That ‘70s Show alumni Gregg Mettler is executive producer and showrunner. Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner, under The Carsey-Werner Company, who produced That ‘70s Show, will also be executive producing this spinoff. Hopefully this means That ‘90s Show will hold true to the original charm that made That ‘70s Show so beloved.
