Ashton Kutcher On Returning To 'That ‘70s Show' Spinoff With Mila Kunis

The actor and entrepreneur said it was "really nostalgic" to return for 'That '90s Show' as Michael Kelso.

Ashton Kutcher opened up about his experience returning to film Netflix's upcoming That 70s Show spin-off, That '90s Show. Going down memory lane, the actor and entrepreneur called the tour "really nostalgic" and "pretty bizarre."


“It was really nostalgic to be back on the set,” Kutcher told Variety. “It’s all the same folks that made That ’70s Show, so it was pretty bizarre.” Kutcher went on to explain that he and his wife—his That ’70s Show co-star Mila Kunis—felt a return to the property was the right thing to do, beyond being a blast, of course. “Mila and I were contemplating it,” Kutcher said. “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 dropped some positives about the new series. “It’s really funny. The new cast is phenomenal,” he said. Teasing what's in store, Kutcher additionally told Entertainment Tonight: "We shot it. It's funny and it's weird. It was super nostalgic and really odd. Going back into the basement—just going back into the set was weird." He added, "And then being around everyone, it's just bizarre."


Kutcher, 44, starred on That '70s Show alongside real-life wife Mila Kunis, Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Wilmer Valderrama, Danny Masterson, Debra Jo Rupp, Kurtwood Smith, Tanya Roberts, Don Stark, Lisa Robin Kelly, and Tommy Chong.

As we had reported earlier the iconic cast of That '70s Show returning to their old stomping grounds bodes well for the property. Callie Haverda will play Leia in the 10-episode series with Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Reyn Doi, and Sam Morelos as the new Point Place teens.


The sequel series, That '90s Show is centered on Eric Forman (Grace) and Donna Pinciotti's (Prepon) daughter Leia (Callie Haverda) befriending other teenagers as she visits her grandparents Kitty (Rupp) and Red Forman (Smith) for the summer, at the place where her parents met and grew up. It will be taking place 15 and a half years after the events of That 70's Show.


The series logline reads, “Sex, drugs, and rock ’n roll never dies, it just changes clothes.” With the original creators leading the spin-off as well, we can expect some That '70s Show style humor in the new series.

The show is set to premiere on Netflix. But a release date has not yet been announced.
