Callie Haverda, who plays Red and Kitty’s granddaughter in That ’90s Show, has revealed that production on the first season has wrapped.
That’s a wrap on the first season of That ’90s Show. In development at Netflix, the upcoming sitcom serves as a sequel series to That ’70s Show with Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp returning as Red and Kitty Forman. Now in the 1990s, the couple will be watching their granddaughter, Leia Forman, who’s come to stay with her grandparents for the summer. Forman is played by Callie Haverda who shared a post to Instagram revealing that filming has now officially been wrapped on the show.
“and that’s a wrap on season one of that 90s show,” Haverda said in the caption. “this show has been my life for the past six? seven? months and the people working on it with me have not only become some of my closest friends but my family. I am so thankful for this experience and everyone who has been there along the way. I cant wait for you all to go back to the 90s to meet leia and the gang.”
Haverda’s co-star Max Donovan commented, “Also sobbing.”
Haverda’s Leia Forman is described by Netflix as a teenager craving adventure. She’s “just not quite sure where or how to start. Until she discovers a best friend in the most unlikely of places: Next door to her grandparents’ house in Point Place.” Donovan co-stars as Nate, the member of the group who lets the gang ride in his van with a smile. He is the older brother of Gwen (Ashley Aufderheide), a loyal but rebellious teen who serves as the unofficial leader of the group.
The new cast also includes Reyn Doi as Ozzie, the “gay and impatient” friend who’s “insightful, sarcastic, and has perspective beyond his years, according to Netflix; Mace Coronel as charming and flirty Jay, Nate’s best bud who works at the local video store and is an aspiring filmmaker; and Sam Morelos as Nikki, Nate’s girlfriend who’s “focused, smart, and driven.”
That ’90s Show Brings Back Red and Kitty
Watching over these kids will be Red and Kitty Forman with Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp reprising their roles. They’ll be bringing a lot of familiar faces with them for special appearances. Topher Grace and Laura Prepon are both respectively returning as Eric and Donna, the parents of Callie Haverda’s Leia Forman. Also confirmed to be returning are fellow main actors from That ’70s Show Wilmer Valderrama as Fez, Mila Kunis as Jackie, and Ashton Kutcher as Kelso. Tommy Chong is also back as Leo.
That ’90s Show does not yet have a release date set at Netflix. Because filming has been wrapped, let’s hope we are not too far away from seeing some footage from the sequel series. So far, Netflix has only released one official photo which reveals Red and Kitty Forman as they appear in the 1990s. Other returning cast members have teased their arrivals but no official images of them in character has yet been released.
