The AV Club is reporting today that the That 90s Show cast has been revealed. Netflix’s That 70s Show spin-off is being overseen by Gregg Mettler, who was executive producer and writer for FOX’s That 70s Show. Along with Mettler, co-creators Bonnie and Terry Turner will be returning along with their daughter, Lindsay Turner, to oversee the production.
Netflix’s That 70s Show spin-off seems to be more of a continuation of the popular FOX show, as opposed to a spin-off.
The premise revolves around 6 teenagers back in Point Place, Wisconsin. Our protagonist is the daughter of Eric and Donna, Leia Foreman, as she visits her grandparents, Red and Kitty, played by Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp once again, respectively, for the summer.
During her summer vacation with her grandparents, Leia gets introduced to her very own ragtag group of misfits.
That ’90s Show Cast Revealed
Ashley Aufderheide plays Gwen:
“Life gets more interesting for Leia when she meets this Riot Grrrl. Equal parts loyalty, rebellion, and heart, Gwen is a dynamic powerhouse and the unofficial leader of the new generation of Point Place kids. Love Gwen. Fear her. Follow her.”
Mace Coronel will play Jay, who is described as a:
“Charming and flirty—at least, he tries. It doesn’t always come outright. When he’s not hanging out with his best friend Nate or working at the local video store, he’s armed with a video camera and the whole world is his film set.”
Maxwell Acee Donovan plays Nate, who is:
“The polar opposite of his little sister, Gwen, Nate takes life as it comes, usually with a big open smile. He lets the gang ride in his van because there’s always something fun on the other side of the drive. He loves his family, his girlfriend, and Garth Brooks.”
Reyn Doi plays Ozzie:
“Everyone loves them some Ozzie. He’s insightful, sarcastic, and has perspective beyond his years. Ozzie is gay and impatient with the world for not being as accepting as his friends.”
And Sam Morelos plays Nikki, who is:
“focused, smart, and driven. From the outside, you could easily see her becoming a doctor or a lawyer. But inside, she has more rebellion than a frustrated debutante, and her boyfriend Nate can scratch that itch.”
There is no timetable yet on a release date, so look to us for any further updates, but we know that series regulars could have cameos, so who knows who is bound to show up. However, there might be one cast member who won’t be making a cameo.
