2015 has seen some pretty awesome reunions of the casts of some of our favorite movies and TV shows. We can now add another to the list. Kelso, Fez and Hyde from That 70s Show enjoyed a boys night out this past Friday. Ashton Kutcher posted a pic with Wilmer Valderrama and Danny Masterson on his Instagram account with the caption “Fam”. Wilmer posted his own pic of the meeting with the caption “Three woes walk into a bar…#Family.” Danny didn’t post the pic, apparently Xenu won’t let his followers have Instagram accounts. Ahem.

Three woes walk into a bar… #Family

This reunion serves as an unofficial sneak preview for Ashton and Danny’s upcoming series for Netflix, The Ranch. The comedy, which will debut later in 2016, stars Ashton as a former semi-pro football player who returns to his hometown in Colorado to help run his family’s ranch, along with his brother, played by Danny. Debra Winger and the still sexy Sam Elliot (who will always be Gar from Mask to me) play Ashton and Danny’s parents. Eliza Cuthbert (whom I still miss from Happy Endings) plays Ashton’s ex, a former cheerleader. Netflix has ordered 20 episodes of the series, which are going to be released in two 10-episode batches next year – great news for all of my fellow binge watchers.

In addition to Ashton and Danny working together again, the show also reunites Ashton with his former Two and a Half Men producers Don Reo and Jim Patterson. There are also unconfirmed rumors that Men creator Chuck Lorre may also be involved with the series. And, who knows, maybe Ashton’s former on-screen and current real-life spouse Mila Kunis will show up.

Don’t worry about Wilmer, he’s keeping busy too. He is on the FOX drama Minority Report and is voicing Prince Charming in the upcoming animated feature Charming, co-starring his current lady love Demi Lovato, along with Ashley Tisdale and Avril Lavigne.

    All of it sounds nice! I also miss Elisha Cuthbert and Happy Endings, it was such a funny show!
    Looking forward to this, sounds like fun.

      Like a lot of shows I never watch them when they are actually on. I get hooked on them when they are off the air and watch the reruns. Happy Endings is one of those shows. I loved it and am so sad it was cancelled. I need more episodes! It’s all my fault too since I didn’t help the ratings when it was on. Dammit!

    • funcakes says:

      This and the B from apt23. Happy Ending will always have a special place in my heart. Amazing that “2 broke girls” is still stinking up the airwaves. If that laugh track breaks that show will be in big trouble.

      • lucy2 says:

        I LOVED Apt 23, when it came on Netflix I rewatched and was so sad all over again it didn’t survive. Happy Endings was good too.

      • Erinn says:

        I refused to watch Apt 23 for the longest time because everything else I’d seen Krysten Ritter in – I didn’t like her. But I absolutely love her now. She was THE BEST in that show – I couldn’t believe how funny it was.

        And Happy Endings will always be one of my all time favorites. Such a good cast.

    They look good.

    I am ridiculously excited for The Ranch, I f*king loved That 70’s show – all these years later, it’s still my favourite sitcom of all time! I think Ashton and Danny will be amazing together. And I hope Mila shows up – the 70’s fan in me will be in heaven!

    • Kitten says:

      That 70s Show is hands-down one of the most underrated, straight-up hilarious show that TV has ever seen. All those characters were so perfectly-cast and say what you want about Kutcher, but that was his first acting role and he brought some serious brilliance to that show. He had a real knack for comedic timing and physical comedy that most people didn’t appreciate.

      I’m super-psyched to check out The Ranch.

      • MisJes says:

        Kitten, I’m with you 100%!

      • littlestar says:

        I agree with all of you, That 70s show was HIGHlarious (sorry for the bad pun, but it was a fantastic show)!

      • vavavoom says:

        Agreed! I think Ashton is hilariously goofy and charming and cute all at the same time. I didn’t watch him on ‘men’, but that was an awful show to begin with. He had a few really funny movies, too. I especially loved the one with Brittany Murphy. I don’t get why so many hate on him. I’d watch almost anything he’s in. Looking forward to the show!

  4. Mia says:

    I love that 70s show!!
    had a huge crush on hyde back in the days

  5. Anna says:

    * Elisha Cuthbert not Eliza!

  6. Lucy2 says:

    Minority Report is most likely being cancelled.
    I have really enjoyed Netflix’s original series, but I can’t stand Ashton.

    • doofus says:

      and I can’t support $cientology. seems others can, though.

      so, apparently, Tom Cruise = bad, but Masterson = OK for some folks.

      • Kitten says:

        For me, I would never not watch a show/movie because I disapprove of one actor’s religion so at least I’m consistent 😉

        I’m assuming you don’t watch Orange Is The New Black because Laura Prepon is Scientologist? So all the good work by actors like Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Samira Wiley etc is irrelevant in the face of one actor’s private beliefs?

        I’m of the opinion that just because one actor belongs to a religion (cult?) that you don’t approve of doesn’t mean you should punish every other amazing actor, brilliant director, or slew of incredible writers that are responsible for making a great show/film. I guess that’s one of many problems I have with taking that approach to things–you inevitably end up penalizing hundreds of other artists that way.

        As far as Cruise goes, I have an unintentional boycott of his movies simply because none of them tend to interest me–has nothing to do with the Scio shit.

      • doofus says:

        I used to watch OITNB, and don’t anymore. yes, because of Prepon, when I found out she was a $ci nut. doesn’t mean their good work is “irrelevant”, it just means I won’t be watching it. and it’s not a religion, it’s a cult. a destructive cult that abuses and imprisons people, employs slave labor and splits families. private beliefs can be anything from belonging to a cult to being a bigot, anti-semite, misogynist, etc. and yes, I will boycott a show if any ONE of a group of actors is one of those things and is vocal about it.

        I am hoping that by boycotting anything that has a $ci nut in it, they will stop being cast in things.

        a girl can hope.

      • Bridget says:

        It’s an interesting question. One of my biggest issues with supporting shows that a Sci is in is the fact that the money they make is going directly to their “Church”. But even more than that (though I can’t believe that’s not enough) for me is the fact that the most public Scientology folks are either odious or straight up weird, and that totally ruins any suspension of disbelief I have. Tom Cruise. Kirstie Alley. Jenna Elfman. Giovanni Ribisi. John Travolta. And I’d incluse Danny Masterson in their, because supposedly he’s a total piece of work himself.

      • lucy2 says:

        For me, I feel like Tom is in a leadership position there, well aware of the abuses, and happy to continue those practices so long as it benefits him. Plus the whole dispensing of medical advice on national TV didn’t sit well with me. I don’t feel comfortable buying a ticket to his films anymore.
        The rest of them, with the exception of Masterson who I’ve never liked or watched, seem to keep their beliefs fairly private and separate from their work.

      • Kitten says:

        Fair enough. Doesn’t change my mind though. Movies, shows, any form of art is entertainment for me. I feel no need to politicize it or to let the private lives of actors dictate how much I enjoy watching something.
        To each his own though.

  7. Mgsota says:

    Sam Elliot….yes, a thousand times YES!!

  8. funcakes says:

    A big old pot of douche stew:
    Danny FU if you don’t understand Scientology
    Wilmer who never met a teenage girl he never liked.
    Ashton(Need we say more)
    All we need is Topher “I’m going to be a Movie Star” grace.
