Netflix has released a featurette dedicated to the return of the historic cast of That ’70s Show in the new series That ’90s Show .
At the center of the video, the stories of Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith , the interpreters of Kitty and Red Forman who we will see again as regular actors in this sequel.
The year is 1995 and Leia Forman is desperate for a little adventure or at least a close friend who isn’t her father. When she arrives at Point Place to visit her grandparents Red and Kitty, she finds exactly what she’s looking for on her doorstep… lively and rebellious Gwen. With the help of Gwen’s friends, including adorable brother Nate and his smart and determined girlfriend Nikki, the sarcastic and wise-cracking Ozzie and the charming Jay, Leia discovers that adventure is at hand, just as it had been for her parents many years ago. Eager to reinvent herself, she convinces her parents to let her stay all summer. With a basement full of teenagers once again, Kitty is pleased that the Forman home has become a haven for a new generation, while Red… well, remains the old Red.
