Ashton Kutcher talked about what it was like to be in the new show That ’90s Show, which is a spinoff of That ’70s Show. From 1998 to 2006, Kutcher made a name for himself on TV with the Fox sitcom set in the past. He and his co-stars Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Danny Masterson, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama played a group of friends coming of age in the 1970s. The show ran for eight seasons. Kutcher played Michael Kelso, the pretty boy, until season 7. After that, he only showed up as a guest star in the last season.
Even though That ’70s Show had a large audience during its original run, it reached the most people when it went into syndication and spoke to new generations. Netflix told them that there will be a second season of That ’90s Show in 2021, which made them very happy. The 1990s version will focus on Eric and Donna Forman’s daughter, Leia (Callie Haverda), as she spends her summer break in Point Place with her grandparents. Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and Red (Kurtwood Smith), the parents from the 1970s version, will be back. The new streaming show will take place 15 years after the end of That 70s Show. Most of the original cast will be back for the new show.
Kutcher told Variety what it was like to go back to the world of the show after more than a decade. He talked about how he and Mila Kunis, a former co-star who is now his wife, struggled with the decision. He said that That 70s Show gave them the big platform they have now. Read below to find out what he had to say about the event:
“Being back on the set made me miss it a lot. It was strange because it was made by the same people who made That ’70s Show. Mila and I both thought about it. We thought, “Listen, we’re only where we are because of that show, so let’s just do this again.” We just went back and spent a week having fun. It was so funny and strange.”
