It is the season of reboots and revivals. Every network is doing them and actually wants them. ABC did Roseanne, NBC did Will and Grace and FOX went forward with Prison Break. Now iconic shows like Friends and The Office have entered discussions for revivals and reboots. So it was only a matter of time that such a question would rise for That 70s show.
That ’70s Show focused on the lives of a group of six teenage friends living in fictional Point Place, Wisconsin, from May 17, 1976, to December 31, 1979. The series starred Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, Laura Prepon and Wilmer Valderrama as well as Debra Jo Rupp, Kurtwood Smith, Don Stark, Tommy Chong and Tanya Roberts in adult roles.
The series was extremely popular during its airing making their actors global stars and phenomenon. All these actors have went on to do some amazing and ground breaking work like Black Swan, Orange is the new Black, Grey’s Anatomy, Two and a half men and Jobs.
Now as much this prolific makes everyone happy band put a big similes on the face of long-time fans this is one of the major reason a reunion might not happen or be in the cards. It would be extremely hard to accommodate all of them and honestly we all have learnt from season 8 of the show that we need the entire gang.
But one of the cast members Tommy Chong displayed a huge interest in reprising his role as Leo. During the promotion of Color out of Space he was quoted as being ‘totally interested’ and called the revival ‘appropriate’ and a ‘great idea’.
Wilmer Valderrama aka Fez on Steve Harvey’s show opened up about discussions regarding a possible revival. But did not confirm anything.
Well fans can hope to see Eric, Jackie and the entire gang back on our screen.
