for fans of That 70’s Show, it can be hard to come to terms with the fact that the time period in which the sitcom initially aired is now considered a flashback era for the sequel series. Set in the same house in Point Place, Wisconsin, 15 years after the events that ended. That 70’s Show, that 90s show follows the teenage daughter of Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon), Leia (Callie Haverda), and the mischief she gets up to with the new friends she meets in town.
What was supposed to be a quick visit with her grandparents Red and Kitty (Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp, reprising their parenting roles) turns into a summer that spares Leia from having to attend Space Camp with her dad. Lonely nerd Leia finds herself with a group of teenage outcasts that she’s a perfect fit with precisely because none of them really fit. During the 10-episode first season, some characters have already become fan favorites.
it would that 90s show to be without a Kelso? While Michael (Ashton Kutcher) and Jackie (Mila Kunis) make a brief cameo in the first episode, it’s their son, Jay (Mace Coronel), who is the show’s main character. Like his father, he is a handsome ladies’ man with a history of being a “player”. But he instantly takes a liking to Leia.
Jay, however, shows a bit more depth than her father did in the original show. While Michael Kelso was dumb, it seems like Jay acts more to live up to his dad’s “cool” reputation, but he’s a lot smarter and emotionally more savvy than he lets on. With plenty of room to grow, Jay is likely to continue to be a fan favorite if the series is picked up for a second season.
Andrea Anders, who fans may recognize from her many supporting roles in movies like dad’s house 2 Y Energeticas well as TV shows like young sheldon Y Modern Family, plays Forman’s new neighbor, Sherri, who rents the old Pinciotti house. The aimless and struggling single mother of half-siblings Nate and Gwen is revealed to be dating Fez (Wilmer Valderrama returns in a recurring role).
Sherri quickly makes herself at home in the Formans’ house, accepting Kitty’s offer to use her shower until hers is fixed, going “shopping” in her fridge, and getting relationship advice from the all-too-kind Kitty. She perfectly fills the nosy, annoying neighbor sitcom trope. But there’s something about Sherri’s thick Wisconsin accent, her ’90s-style high ponytail, and her carefree attitude that makes her likeable despite her invasive nature.
Every group of teenage friends on a show like this needs that bookworm friend. The person is the achiever who is happy to get up to all the silly mischief, but when all is said and done, school and their future are a priority. On this show, that’s Nikki, played by Sam Morelos.
She’s ambitious, smart, and as typical high school rules dictate, she’s dating the school jock, Nate. The odd couple have physical chemistry, but it’s clear that they will eventually follow very different paths in life. Still, fans love Nikki’s maturity and kindness, like her when she helps Kitty update her resume to apply for a school nursing job. Nikki is making the most of her youth and enjoying her every moment of high school life. But unlike the others, and even at such a young age, she’s already thinking several steps ahead and is aware of (and preparing for) something bigger in her future.
4. Red shape
One of two main characters to return to the show (although there are plenty of nostalgic cameos, including main and guest stars from the original), Red Forman hasn’t changed one bit. Happy to live a quiet life reading his newspaper in the kitchen and tending to his garden, “old” Red goes out as soon as he sees his child, or any small child, wandering around the house to disrupt existence. peaceful from him.
From the flowing insults and glares to “a foot up your ass” threats, Red’s comic relief is just as funny decades later as it was in the ’90s. What makes Red so likable, though despite his surly demeanor, underneath the tough exterior, he has a heart. and not just for Kitty and Leia, but for everyone else as well. The instances in question include when she went out of her way to help Sherri and quietly gave Nate an old plaid shirt that she knew he liked.
One of the funniest characters in that 90s showOzzie (Reyn Doi) is the outcast who apparently doesn’t mind not fitting in. He’s content to be himself, rarely shows emotion, and loves to chat with his French-Canadian boyfriend, Etienne, who lives in Quebec (and no one believes he exists).
Despite not being a part of the drama going on with the rest of his friends, Ozzie is always there to offer sage advice or make a scathing comment. He approaches the idea of a young man being gay in the 1990s in an honest way, acknowledging the difficulty he will have coming out to his parents. Fans love how confident he is and how comfortable he is in his own skin.
2. Kitten Forman
Just as Red hasn’t changed a bit, neither has Kitty. While Red reveled in having an empty house, Kitty is in her element when she learns that Leia is staying and that there is a new group of local friends to make use of the lonely and iconic basement. She is quick to invite them anytime they want (much to Red’s chagrin) and begins planning a list of snacks to buy: this includes “Doritos, Tostitos, and all the itos.”
Kitty’s blissful innocence is sometimes offset by her ability to enforce the rules when necessary, even if she always does so with her trademark high-pitched voice and jovial demeanor. Kitty has some standout moments in the first season, including her heart-to-heart with Ozzie when he decided to come out to her (before telling her parents) and her dental surgery tattoo incident. It’s impossible not to like Kitty, that she’s always so warm and welcoming, and she’s happy to let her basement, her shower, and even her groceries for whomever she needs.
Leia is the perfect combination of Eric and Donna. She’s ditzy but, when it comes to pushing, she can also be fiercely confident. Younger than her parents were at the beginning of That 70’s Show (Leia turns 15 during the first season), she still has a lot to learn, and plenty of coming-of-age challenges. But she can relate to anyone who knows what it’s like to not fit in, especially at such a crucial and difficult age.
Her innocence is what makes Leia so endearing, from admitting she’s never kissed a boy before to failing to pick a movie for movie night, to the point that her peers might consider her “trendy” and ” cool”. While Leia is open to trying new things, she’s always just out to have a good time and push her own limits, never because she’s giving in to her peer pressure.
