14 Interviews With The Cast Of ‘That ’70s Show’ That Recall Why We Loved Hanging Out With Them

“That ’70s Show” became one of the most popular comedies and the finest teen shows in television history.

Created by Mark Brazill, Bonnie Turner, and Terry Turner, “That ’70s Show,” followed a group of teenagers growing up in the Wisconsin suburbs in the 1970s. They enjoyed hanging around, getting high, and drinking beer together. The series was well-received by both young and old audiences. “That ‘70s Show” became the launching pad for the acting careers of several of its actors including Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Ashton Kutcher, Mila Kunis, Wilmer Valderrama, and Danny Masterson.

After the success of “That ‘70s Show”, Fox tried to maintain the show’s momentum with “That ’80s Show,” but it was unsuccessful because it lacked the charm and skill that “That ’70s Show” possessed. In recent news, it was revealed that “That ’90s Show” will premiere on Netflix, although no release date has been set.

Before then, let’s take a look at 14 interviews with the cast of “That ’70s Show” and recall why we enjoy spending time with them.
