It might be the 2020s, however we will travel back to the ‘90s with the highly-anticipated series That ‘90s Show. The That ‘70s Show spinoff wrapped filming on its first season over the summer, and fans and the stars couldn’t be much more fired up. With a lot of the initial actors returning, it’s only simply an issue of time prior to we see them all on the display with each other once again. And Topher Grace is opening up concerning his return.

Following the announcement of That ‘90s Show, concerns climbed concerning the initial actors’s return in addition to Debra Jo Rupp and also Kurtwood Smith, that were heading the offshoot. Since the collection focuses on the child of Eric (Topher Grace) and also Donna (Laura Prepon) investing the summertime with her grandparents Kitty and also Red in Point Place, Wisconsin, followers quickly wished for Grace and also Prepon’s returns. 

Due to Grace shooting Home Economics, it felt like he was as well hectic to do That ‘90s Show. But he is indeed coming back to Point Place and even told ET some details about Eric’s long-awaited return:

It resembled a family members get-together. They are all such impressive, impressive individuals that were all so prominent in my life. I just did one episode, the very first episode, however I’m truly delighted.


While it is frustrating that we will just obtain Grace in the best, it is far better than absolutely nothing. With Grace filming Home Economics, that does make tackling various other jobs hard. However, feeling in one’s bones that Eric is returning and also we will certainly more than likely see him communicating with his moms and dads is something that followers will certainly be anticipating.

Of training course, in addition to Topher Grace returning, Laura Prepon is returning too. In June, the starlet shared her emotional thoughts about returning as Donna, confessing she sobbed on her very first day on collection. It seems like shooting That ‘90s Show was special and nostalgic for all involved, and fans can probably look forward to plenty of references throughout the season to keep the nostalgia going. 

Wilmer Valderrama, Mila Kunis, and Ashton Kutcher are all returning for That ‘90s Show, meaning the mood on set was probably a crazy one. Hopefully, the series will do better than That ‘80s Show, which lasted 13 episodes in 2002. Since this story actually involves its former star, fingers crossed it becomes the next great reboot that lasts a long time.

With That ‘70s Show now streaming on Peacock with a subscription, fans are able to go back to Point Place and relive all the crazy storylines that happened. There currently is no word on when That ‘90s Show will premiere, but be sure to check out CinemaBlend’s Netflix TV schedule to see what else is coming quickly!
