That ’70s Show cast: Where are they now?

It's been years since we last hung out with the beloved Fox sitcom. Catch up with your favorite stars from That '70s Show.

It’s the golden age of revamps of beloved shows, so it’s not surprising that Netflix created That ’90s Show, a continuation of That ’70s Show, which ran on Fox from 1998 to 2006.

That ’70s Show was to the ’90s what Happy Days was to the ’70s: a light-hearted, nostalgia-fueled sitcom looking fondly back at a specific decade 20 years prior. That ’70s Show’s Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard) was Eric Forman (Topher Grace), a teenager with a stern dad (Kurtwood Smith as Red), a loving mom (Debra Jo Rupp as Kitty), an oddball collection of friends, and a huge crush on the red-headed woman next door (Laura Prepon as Donna). The sitcom offered a cheeky look at the decade (Who could forget the circular pot conversations in the basement? The trippy segues? The numerous guest spots by ’70s luminaries like Charo, Shirley Jones, and Alice Cooper?), grounded in the Formans’ cozy brand of family comedy and the genuine affection among the close friend group of Eric, Donna, Kelso (Ashton Kutcher), Hyde (Danny Masterston), Fez (Wilmer Valderrama), and Jackie (Mila Kunis).

Along with Netflix’s That ’90s Show comes the cameos of many of the main ’70s Show cast members. Red and Kitty are regular characters as the grandparents of Eric and Donna’s daughter Leia Forman (shout-out to the season one Star Wars episode, “A New Hope”),  played by Callie Haverda, who comes to stay with them for the summer in Point Place, Wisc. So of course  both Eric and Donna showed up in the first season, along with some other Point Place residents, such as Kutcher, Kunis, and Valderrama. But this successful spin-off (which was renewed for a second season with 16 more episodes) got us wondering what that ’70s crew has been up to over the past years. Read on to find out.
