It’s been quite some time since we last hung out in the basement of Point Place with our favorite ’70s gang, but the memories and laughter from That ’70s Show still linger. As the world of television continues to bring back beloved shows, Netflix decided to dive into the nostalgia pool with “That ’90s Show,” a continuation of the original series that aired from 1998 to 2006.

“That ’70s Show” was a delightful trip down memory lane, much like “Happy Days” was for the ’70s, as it playfully looked back at the ’70s from the perspective of the ’90s. With characters like Eric Forman (Topher Grace), Red (Kurtwood Smith), Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp), Donna (Laura Prepon), and the rest of the gang, it offered a humorous take on the era, complete with circular pot conversations, trippy segues, and memorable guest appearances by ’70s icons like Charo, Shirley Jones, and Alice Cooper.

Now, with the arrival of “That ’90s Show,” which includes appearances from many of the original cast members, we can’t help but wonder what our beloved ’70s crew has been up to all these years. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and find out where they are today.

Topher Grace quickly won our hearts as Eric Forman, the central character of “That ’70s Show.” After leaving the show in 2005 (though he returned for the finale), Grace explored various roles in movies like “In Good Company” and “Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!” He also delivered a memorable performance as Venom in “Spider-Man 3” and appeared in prestigious projects like “Interstellar” and “BlacKkKlansman.”

In 2021, Grace made a return to television, starring in the ABC family sitcom “Home Economics.” Fans were thrilled when he reprised the role of Eric Forman for the pilot episode of “That ’90s Show” in 2023.

In addition to her acting career, Prepon co-wrote “The Stash Plan: Your 21-Day Guide to Shed Weight, Feel Great, and Take Charge of Your Health” in 2016 and authored a 2020 memoir titled “You and I, as Mothers: A Raw and Honest Guide to Motherhood.” She also made a return as Donna in several episodes of “That ’90s Show.”

Ashton Kutcher, who portrayed the lovable goofball Michael Kelso, bid farewell to “That ’70s Show” in 2005 (but returned for the finale). He embarked on a journey in rom-coms with films like “What Happens in Vegas” and “No Strings Attached.” Kutcher also made a name for himself as a tech investor, getting in early on companies like Uber, Airbnb, and Spotify.

Returning to television, Kutcher took on the role of Steve Jobs in the biographical film “Jobs” in 2013 and joined the cast of CBS’ “Two and a Half Men.” He also reunited with his “That ’70s Show” co-star Danny Masterson on Netflix’s “The Ranch” and starred in various films, including “Vengeance” and “Your Place or Mine.”

Mila Kunis, who famously fibbed about her age to land the role of Jackie Burkhart, transitioned smoothly into adult roles after “That ’70s Show.” She lent her voice to Meg Griffin in “Family Guy” and starred in films like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Black Swan.” Kunis even led the “Bad Moms” movie franchise.

In 2022, she appeared in the film adaptation of Jessica Knoll’s “Luckiest Girl Alive.” Interestingly, Kunis married her former on-screen boyfriend Ashton Kutcher in 2015, and they have two children together. In real life, Jackie and Kelso found their happily ever after.

Danny Masterson (Steven Hyde)

Danny Masterson, who portrayed the enigmatic Steven Hyde, continued his acting career after “That ’70s Show.” He had a prominent role in Netflix’s “The Ranch.” Unfortunately, Masterson faced serious legal issues as multiple women accused him of sexual assault.

In 2020, Masterson was arrested and charged with three counts of rape. While his first trial ended in a mistrial in 2022, a retrial in 2023 found him guilty of raping two women, resulting in a 30-year to life prison sentence. His legal troubles prevented him from appearing in “That ’90s Show” and participating in a 25th-anniversary display at Comic-Con.
