Fans are wondering if more That 70s Show cast members will appear in the spinoff series. PopCulture.com spoke to Laura Prepon in April 2020 and said she “doesn’t” think she would reprise her character as Donna Pinciotti. “I mean, look, I love that show,” Prepon said at the time. “That show is like, it was my first thing, and I did it for eight years, and I love that show. I love that cast. I loved the crew, and I learned so much from our director, David Trainer, who directed every episode except for the pilot. He was like our father. That show was so special to me, but it’s kind of like in a time capsule.”
