More than 15 years have passed since the end of “That ’70s Show,” so it’s a bit trippy for series star Ashton Kutcher to return for show’s upcoming Netflix spinoff, That ’90s Show.

“It was really nostalgic to be back on the set,” Kutcher said at the red carpet premiere of  Vengeance at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles Monday evening. “It’s all the same folks that made ‘That ’70s Show,’ so it was pretty bizarre.”

Kutcher and his wife, his “That ’70s Show” costar Mila Kunis, felt return to the property was the right thing to do — beyond being a blast, of course.

“Mila and I were contemplating it, 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. We just went back and had fun for a week. It was so random and fun.”

Kutcher also gave encouraging words about the new ’90s-set series: “It’s really funny. The new cast is phenomenal.”

That ’90s Show

“That ’90s Show” is set to follow Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna’s (Laura Prepon) daughter Leia Forman (Callie Haverda) as she visits her grandparents for the summer.

Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp are returning from the original cast to once again play Red and Kitty.

The series, set in 1995, will follow a new generation of Point Place kids and includes newcomers Haverda, Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Reyn Doi and Sam Morelos.

Kutcher will reprise his character of Michael Kelso in a guest role for the new series. Fellow original castmates, including Grace, Prepon, Kunis and Wilmer Valderrama, are also all set to join in guest appearances.


Kutcher plays a supporting role in Vengeance, the directorial debut of “The Office” alum B.J. Novak, who wrote and stars in the film.

Vengeance follows an aspiring podcaster, played by Novak, as he travels from New York to Texas to investigate the death of a woman he had a relationship with. Kutcher plays Quinten Sellers in the film, a music producer in Texas.

Vengeance hits theaters Friday, while That ’90s Show has no official release date announced.
