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 die; they changes clothes.
Who is Cast in That 90s Show?
One of the strengths of That ’90s Show is the cast and the surprise guest stars, which is a fix of new talent and old fan favorites! Let’s look at the characters and the strong work of the cast. Enjoy!
Who are the characters in That ’90s Show?
Callie Haverda as Leia Forman
Callie Haverda, perhaps best known for playing Abby in The Lost Husband, plays Leia Forman, the daughter of Eric Forman (Topher Grace) and Donna Pinciotti (Laura Prepon). According to Netflix, “Leia is desperate for some adventure in her life or at least a best friend who isn’t her dad, when she arrives in Point Place to visit her grandparents, Red and Kitty.”
Ashley Aufderheide as Gwen Runck
“Leia finds what she’s looking for right next door when she meets the dynamic and rebellious Gwen,” according to the streaming giant. Ashley Aufderheide (Going in Style) plays Gwen, who has taken up the Riot grrrl – an underground feminist punk movement that began during the early 1990s within the Pacific Northwest – and broadens Leia’s outlook on life.
Mace Coronel as Jay Kelso
Jay Kelso is played by Mace Coronel (Colin in Black & White), who plays the son of Michael Kelso (Ashton Kutcher) and Jackie Burkhart (Mila Kunis), a charming young videographer. Mace also plays Leia’s love interest.
Maxwell Acee Donovan as Nate Runck
Gabby Duran & The Unsittables fan favorite Maxwell Acee plays Nate Runk, the easygoing and fun-loving brother of Leia’s new bestie, Gwen. His girlfriend, Nikki (Forgetting Nobody’s Sam Morelos), is an ambitious and intelligent character that will act as the “straight” woman to the eclectic group of friends.
Reyn Doi as Ozzie
Reyn Doi plays the most progressive character in the history of the series, an openly gay teenager who brings a sarcastic and insightful presence to the group of friends.
Debra Jo Rupp as Kitty Forman and Kurtwood Smith as Red Forman
Of course, the only main cast from the original That ’70s Show is Debra Jo Rump and Kurtwood Smith, who played Kitty and Red Forman, the parents of Eric, whose home was the tree house for Eric’s group of friends. (And yes, even after Topher Grace left the show for good). As everything seems to change, mostly the music has gone from Aerosmith to Pearl Jam, some things stay the same, like sex and drugs.
Thankfully, Gwen will remain under Kitty’s caring eyes and Red’s icy cold stare.
Who is going to be in That ’90s Show?
Some notable special guest stars from the original series play recurring characters. Stars and real-life married couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis reprise their roles as Jackie and Michael Kelso. Fez will make his grand return, with Wilmer Valderrama taking back the reigns of the role that made him famous. Fez owns a thriving salon in town and still drives the ladies of the dairy state mad with his accent.
Others are Don Stark reloading the shirts, the jewelry, and the fearless wig that came with playing Donna’s father, Bob Pinciotti. Finally, fan-favorite Tommy Chong looks to light up the pipe one last time as the aging hippie and owner of the photo hut, Leo Chingkwake. Something tells me Leo may have invested heavily in digital cameras and may be rich beyond everyone’s wildest expectations.
However, Leo’s most loyal employee, Steven Hyde, will not return to Point Pleasant, Wisconsin.
Are Eric and Donna in That ’90s Show?
Topher Grace and Laura Prepon are also set to return to their roots as Eric and Donna Forman. They’re in the pilot, dropping off their daughter Gwen for ’90s summer, and offer some poignant nostalgia for a beloved series.
