Wilmer Valderrama on Fez’s Return to Netflix Spinoff, That ‘90s Show

Amidst all of the classic sitcoms getting new reboots recently, it was only a matter of time before That ’70s Show received one too.

And now that the spinoff, That ’90s Show, is officially in the works at Netflix, it had fans wondering whether they’d get to see some of the OG characters return as well.

Now, in a recent interview with TV Insider, actor Wilmer Valderrama has spoken about whether his character Fez from the original sitcom would return to Point Place, Wisconsin.

As the actor has his schedule packed for the year with CBS’s NCIS and ABC’s reboot of Zorro, he did not exactly promise Fez’s return but said that he would not hesitate to say yes if the timing wills it.

“I’m a little busy now, but I support them so much. I’m rooting for them. I wish them nothing but the best. If the timing is right, I’d never say no.”
