Having big roles in TV shows such as “That ’70s Show”, “Two and a Half Men” and most recently in “The Ranch” on Netflix, Ashton Kutcher is known by many as a great actor.
As much as he took a break, Ashton’s career was in full swing, as the actor received very high salaries, worthy of a TV star. But Kutcher was slowly moving away from acting for a surprising career turn, returning as an investor.
Now, to the delight of his fans, he will return to the role that kick-started his career and put him on the map. As surprising as it sounds, Ashton Kutcher will return to where it all began, in Point Place, Wisconsin.
“That ’90s Show” is the sequel to “That ’70s Show” that features Kutcher along with a large part of the series’ original cast, who will be returning in their respective roles. Mila Kunis and Kutcher claimed to have discussed the return of the characters in the appearances of “That ’90s Show”. But they were convinced when they remembered the program’s importance in their careers.
The sequel will see Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon) alongside Debra Jo Rupp and Kurtwood Smith reprising their roles as Kitty and Red. Wilmer Valderrama will also return, and unfortunately, for legal reasons, Danny Masterson will not participate in the sequel to the series, which will take place 20 years after the original.
The return is great news for fans who are looking forward to seeing the cast and acting into adulthood. The production will focus more on Leia (Callie Haverda) and the new friends she’s met over the summer.
Character appearances will be limited, except for Kitty and Red. So, could there be a meeting of all the characters when they come together at the end of the summer or something similar, we don’t know yet.
Ashton Kutcher’s return as Kelso is spectacular, given that it was the role that jumpstarted the actor’s career. When Kutcher decided to enter the entertainment business, he jumped right in, as “That ’70s Show” immediately made him a star. Being Michael Kelso, Ashton focused all that goofy nature on his fictional character.
The series ran for eight seasons, with Kutcher appearing regularly in the first seven, as at the beginning of the eighth season he was on the set of “The Guardian”, he only appeared as a cameo in the final season.
So we see that Kutcher’s career wasn’t entirely just for “That ’70s Show,” but his immediate success on the show allowed him to solidify his film territory.
