Why Ashton Kutcher Is Returning For That
'90s Show
By VALERIE ETTENHOFER
After a 2002 effort at a sequel show ended in failure, it seemed "That 70's Show" would never give it another go. But for some reason, not only is "That '90s Show" actually happening, but it's also expected to have appearances by the majority of the major cast members of the original series.
The Netflix continuation focuses on a new generation of suburban Wisconsin kids, led by Eric and Donna's daughter Leia (Callie Haverda). Ashton Kutcher spoke to Variety about reprising the role of Michael Kelso, prime-time's most adorably clueless himbo who left the show in Season 8.
Kutcher says he and wife/former co-star Mila Kunis recognize that the show launched both their careers, so they felt it was right to return one more time. "We thought, 'Listen, we're only in the position that we're in because of that show, so let's just go back and do this," Kutcher told Variety.
