I hate to say it, but the golden years of the multi-camera sitcom are long gone. It’s a style of comedy with a long and respectable history on network television, ranging from All in the Family to Cheers to Seinfeld, but not too many notable examples from recent years (especially outside of CBS). One of the last great sitcoms of the modern age came in the form of Fox’s That ‘70s Show, which ended its run in 2006. Although the show ended almost a full decade ago, it seems that the cast remains close, as they recently reunited on the set of The Ranch for a picture that's as nostalgia-inducing as That '70s Show itself.

As you can see from actress Laura Prepon’s Instagram post above, the central cast of That ‘70s show recently came together on the set of Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson’s new Netflix series The Ranch. Complete with a caption referring to everyone as “family,” the picture shows Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama all grown up and back together a full ten years after That ‘70s Show came to an end. If this moment conjures up insanely powerful pangs of the past, fret not; you aren’t alone in that feeling.

It’s not a huge stretch of the imagination to assume that everyone in this picture has fond memories of That ‘70s Show. After all, the wildly popular Fox sitcom ran for eight seasons and served as the jumping off point for each of their careers. Although they’ve all gone on to experience their own individual successes, we as fans will always remember them as the kids who would sit around getting high in the Forman’s basement.

Of course, there’s one notable absence in this photograph that any fan of That ‘70s Show will instantly pick up on: Topher Grace is nowhere to be found. As Eric Forman, Grace represented the face of the series until his departure to work on Spider-Man 3 at the end of Season 7. The show ultimately found a replacement for him in the form of Josh Meyers’ Randy Pearson, but fans of the series widely panned the introduction of the new character. Grace ultimately returned to the series as Eric in 2006 for the series finale, lending a sense of closure to his multi-year character arc on the series.

As a long time fan of That ‘70s Show, it’s undeniably awesome to see (almost) everyone back together again. The classic FOX sitcom captured the spirit of an iconic decade, and if they decide that they want to reunite for an actual reunion show, then we’re completely on board. In fact, that could be a possibility moving forward. More on how That '70s Show cast members could reunite on the next page.
