That 90s Show is adding more actors from the original series as work continues on the series.
Netflix is hard at work on That 90s Show, a sequel to Fox’s That 70s Show. The new series will focus on Leia, (Callie Haverda), the daughter of Eric and Donna Foreman. She will be moving in with her grandparents, Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp, returning as Red and Kitty Forman.
Since the original announcement, the series has added more original cast members for appearances. Eric (Topher Grace), Donna (Laura Prepon), Jackie (Mila Kunis), Kelso (Ashton Kutcher), and Fez (Wilmer Valderrama) are all scheduled to appear. Now a surprise addition has been announced that Leo (Tommy Chong) will also be appearing in the series.
It should be noted that Danny Masterson, who played Hyde in the original series, will not be returning due to ongoing accusations of sexual assault.
The series will be adding more new characters as well. Leia’s new best friend, Gwen, lives next door and will be played by Ashley Aufderheide (Emergence). Gwen is described as a Riot Grrrl and the unofficial leader of the new Point Place teens.
Mace Coronel (Colin in Black & White) will be playing the charming and flirty – at least he thinks so – Jay. Maxwell Acee Donovan (Gabby Duran & The Unsittables) will be Gwen’s older, more laid-back, brother. Reyn Doi (Side Hustle) is the insightful, gay friend who is growing impatient that the world isn’t as accepting of him as his friends. And rounding out the teens will be Sam Morelos as Nikki, Nate’s driven girlfriend with a rebellious streak.
No debut date has been announced as of yet for That 90s Show.
