They’re back — hanging out, down the street.

Most of the original cast of “That ’70s Show” has officially signed on to return for the follow-up “That ’90s Show,” produced by Netflix.

Topher Grace (Eric Forman), Mila Kunis (Jackie Burkhart), Ashton Kutcher (Michael Kelso), Laura Prepon (Donna Pinciotti), and Wilmer Valderrama (Fez) are on board for the upcoming revival. Kurtwood Smith (Red) and Debra Jo Rupp (Kitty), too, will reprise their iconic roles as Eric’s parents, as well as executive produce.

The only cast member missing from the reunion is Danny Masterson (Hyde) as he presently awaits trial on three counts of rape. He has denied the allegations. The series stars newbie Callie Haverda as Leia Forman, Eric and Donna’s daughter.

The new show follows Leia spending the summer with her grandparents in the crew’s hometown of Point Place, Wisconsin, where she becomes friends with a local group of teens. Actors Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Reyn Doi, and Sam Morelos join the pristine “That ’90s Show” crew.

The official description reads: “Hello, Wisconsin! It’s 1995 when 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 die; it just changes clothes.”

Grace, 43, celebrated the news on social media by posting a photo of himself wearing a “Point Place Vikings ’77” shirt captioned. “Yup, still fits. #hellowisconsin,” he captioned it. Valderrama, 42, verified the news with a cheeky video showing him opening a box labeled “Fez,” and fitting back into a very Fez outfit. “Red? Let’s try this Amédica word again.. #HelloWisconsin. Yup, still fits..” he noted.

Netflix called the 10-episode comedy in October and approved the news of all the returning faces last week.

The original series ran from 1998 until 2006 for eight seasons on Fox. The show's main focus was on a group of teenage friends living in the fake Wisconsin town as they kick back, party, and discuss the essence of life in the Formans’ basement.

“That ’90s Show” comes as the latest try to reboot the popular show, which premiered in 1998 and ran for eight seasons. The hit show also encouraged the short-lived series “That ’80s Show,” which ran for just one season in 2002 and made no crossovers with the original 70s cast lineup.

The now-iconic sitcom catapulted its stars to fame, including on-and-off-camera-couple Kunis and Kutcher. “That ’70s Show” star Tanya Roberts, who played Donna’s mother, Midge, passed away in January 2021. The news of her death was widely misinterpreted and many thought she had passed on earlier than her publicist declared.

Several of her cast members mourned the loss. “I was so sad to hear that Tanya Roberts has passed away. She was a Bond girl, one of Charlie’s Angels, and truly a delightful person to work with,” Grace wrote on social media at the time. “I had never acted before and, to be honest, a little nervous around her. But she couldn’t have been kinder. We’ll miss you, Midge.”

“Tanya had a big deep hearty laugh. She was all instinct and beauty. In the first season of 70’s we had a scene in the kitchen, drinking cocktails and laughing together,” Rupp additionally stated. “She laughed, spit her drink in my face, apologized profusely, and did it 3 more times. I loved her. RIP beauty.”
