Netflix released an official description for “That ’90s Show”: “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.”
Putting aside the fact that Donna let Eric name their kid after a “Star Wars” character, we can glean some very useful information about the show. Kurtwood Smith (Red) and Debra Jo Rupp (Kitty) are definitely back. It would also make sense for Topher Grace (Eric) and Laura Prepon (Donna) to come back at least once, maybe to drop Leia off with Eric’s folks. Grace has expressed interest in doing a reunion or revival of the show in the past, saying “I’d do it if no one ever saw it. Just ’cause it would be great to hang out with them for a week or something,” in a Hollywood Reporter interview.
It remains to be seen if other major cast members like Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis (who are now married in real life) as Kelso and Jackie, or Wilmer Valderrama as Fez, will appear. It is unlikely that Hyde will ever come back, as Netflix already gave Danny Masterson the boot from “The Ranch” amid his sexual assault allegations.
