The cast of the original series
The acclaimed That ’70s Show originally ran on Fox and turned almost all of its key cast members into stars. The story was essentially about a group of teenage friends growing up in 1970s’ Point Place, Wisconsin, US.
While Kutcher played Michael Kelso, Kunis played Jackie Burkhart in the original. Grace essayed Eric Forman, Prepon appeared as Donna Pinciotti and Valderrama played Fez. All of them will reprise their roles in the cameo appearances they are set to play in the upcoming show.
Danny Masterson, who played Hyde, will not be returning because of multiple sexual allegations made against him. Masterson, however, has denied the charges.

The new show will be set in 1995 and follow Eric and Donna’s daughter, Leia.
The series’ official synopsis on Tudum reads, “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.”
