As hard as it is to believe, That '70s Show is twenty years old! The show left its teen years behind, and the cast of the series took to social media to celebrate the occasion. And as luck would have it, the momentous event lined up with Throwback Thursday. Among the stars to take to social media were That '70s Show's leading man, Topher Grace. On Twitter, the actor posted a nostalgic picture of the cast with an appreciative caption. See it below:
That '70s Show premiered on August 23, 1998. The sitcom was a hit for Fox and subsequently ran for eight seasons. Topher Grace starred in seven of them, leaving the show during the finale of its penultimate season. While talk of Eric was omnipresent despite his being off-screen, he did return for the series finale. Grace's breakthrough turn as Eric Forman jettisoned his career to a new level. And he was not alone. The show's other cast members enjoyed tremendous success in its aftermath.
Among them was Laura Prepon, who starred as Donna Pinciotti on the series. Like her co-star and on-screen love interest Topher Grace, Prepon has not forgotten about the show that gave her career its big break. Prepon also took to Twitter to share a Throwback Thursday picture of the cast. Replete with a caption expressing her awe at the show's success, she showed off a photo from their first press tour.

Joining his cast mates in celebrating the show's 20th anniversary was Wilmer Valderrama, who starred as Fez on the series. Like Prepon, Valderrama remained on the show throughout its entire eight-season run. Valderrama took to both Twitter and Instagram to commemorate That '70s Show's special day. On Instagram, Valderrama utilized the social media platform's more generous character count. He shared a portrait of the cast with a caption that thanked and acknowledged numerous people for their contribution to the show.
On Twitter, Wilmer Valderrama's message was shorter, albeit just as celebratory. He also included a bonus picture not seen in his Instagram post. You can check it out in the Tweet below:
With That '70s Show celebrating a milestone anniversary this week, it would not be surprising if it has conjured some nostalgic sentiments for a reunion among fans of the comedy. Given the current commitments of the cast, though, a Will & Grace-style multi-season revival seems out of the question.
When recently asked about the potential for a That '70s Show revival, Topher Grace seemed open to the idea citing the close-knit cast as one of the alluring factors. Whether it actually comes together or not sometime in the future, fans will always have the original, which we've now had for 20 years!
