Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp have agreed to appear in That ’90s Show, a spinoff of their hit sitcom That ’70s Show.
Netflix announced on Friday that it had ordered ten episodes of the series.
Smith and Rupp will reprise their roles as Red and Kitty, respectively. They will also serve as executive producers for That ’70s Show creators Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner’s sequel series.
There has been no other casting announcement.
“Hello, Wisconsin! It’s 1995 and 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,” a synopsis said. “Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll never dies, it just changes clothes.”
Gregg Mettler — whose credits include Man with a Plan and The Muppets — is the showrunner.
That ’70s Show initially ran on FOX from 1998 to 2006. It starred Smith, Rupp, Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Danny Masterson, Laura Prepon, Wilmer Valderrama and the late Lisa Robin Kelly.
