TV shows have been part of our lives for as long as many of us can remember. But not all TV shows are created equal; some series have been more successful than others and, of course, some we do miss and others we don't. When one of our favorite long-lost series is rebooted, it's always a nerve-racking wait to see if it does the original show justice or was simply a money-grab.
'That '70s Show' was a long beloved series that aired from 1998-2006 and launched the careers of A-listers like Laura Prepon, Mila Kunis, and Ashton Kutcher. Now, Netflix has greenlit a spinoff series which is set in the '90s and will center around Leia Forman, the daughter of Eric and Donna, as she heads to Wisconsin to spend the summer with her grandparents.
Per Netflix, Leia will bond "with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red," and both Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith will reprise their roles in the series. The creators of the original show, Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner, are also on board as writers and executive producers. There's no word on whether any other stars will return for 'That '90s Show,' but it seems Leia's parents, played by Laura Prepon and Topher Grace, are likely to make a cameo.
