“Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll never dies, it just changes clothes.”
Into older clothes, no doubt. That description comes from the upcoming Netflix show, “That ‘90s Show,” a spin-off of “That ′70s Show,” which ran on Fox from 1998 to 2006.
Kurtwood Smith (Red Forman) and Debra Jo Rupp (Kitty Forman), who played the parents in the original series, will reprise their roles in the spin-off, Variety reported.
Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of the multi-cam show, the website reported.
The new show will return to the fictional town of Point Place, Wisconsin, and will be set in 1995.
The official description notes that “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.”
The original show chronicled teenage friends growing up in Point Place, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It also was revived on Netflix but departed the streaming service last year.
It is unclear whether other members of the original cast will sign on to appear in the spin-off.
Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama all had successful careers after “That ′70s Show” ended its original run. One member of the cast, Danny Masterson, is currently about to stand trial for three rape charges in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Other cast members included Don Stark, Tonya Roberts, and Tommy Chong, Variety reported.
Masterson and Kutcher would later star in the Netflix comedy series “The Ranch.” Rupp, Smith, and Valderrama all made appearances on the series, according to Variety.
