(Court TV) — “That ’90s Show,” Netflix’s spinoff series of Fox’s “That ’70s Show,” dropped today leaving many fans questioning, will Danny Masterson, who played Steven Hyde, join the other alums expected to reprise their roles.

Among those returning are series regulars, Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp, as Red and Kitty Forman. Also appearing as special guests are Topher Grace (Eric Forman), Mila Kunis (Jackie Burkhart), Ashton Kutcher (Michael Kelso), Laura Prepon (Donna Forman), and Wilmer Valderrama (Fez), according to Netflix. 


A name not mentioned by Netflix is Danny Masterson, whose rape case ended in a mistrial after a deadlocked jury failed to reach a verdict.

Masterson, 46, is charged with the rape of three women, including a former girlfriend, at his home between 2001 and 2003.

Prosecutors say they will retry Masterson on the three rape counts they previously failed to get half the jury to convict him on.

The judge tentatively set the retrial to begin in late March.
