Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp were seen reprising their signature roles as Red and Kitty Forman in the new That ’90s Show teaser.

Netflix released the minute-long clip for the spin-off series to highly-popular early 2000s sitcom That ’70s Show and surely fans were delighted to see at least two familiar faces.

It seems like not much has changed in two decades as the set looked very similar but one major difference was welcoming their grand daughter Leia (Callie Haverda) who is the daughter of Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon).

According to the synopsis of the sequel series, it takes place in 1995 as Leia is visiting her grandparents for the summer ‘where she bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty and the stern glare of Red.’

Another exciting reveal was the return of the famous basement where Eric would hang out with his friends.

The new generation of teenagers certainly seemed to be enjoying partying there just like their predecessors including the infamous ‘circle’ where the gang would smoke marijuana.

According to the synopsis, Leia’s new pals consist of ‘dynamic and rebellious Gwen (Ashley Aufderheide). With the help of Gwen’s friends, including her lovable brother Nate (Maxwell Donovan), his smart, laser-focused girlfriend Nikki (Sam Morelos), the sarcastic and insightful Ozzie (Reyn Doi), and the charming Jay (Mace Coronel).’

They seem to get into similar hijinks as well as one seen showed many members of the gang hiding in the home.
