Ashton Kutcher is on a nostalgic trip. More than 15 years since That '70s Show ended, the series star is back for the upcoming Netflix spinoff, That '90s Show.

In a new interview with Variety, he revealed that being back on set after so many years was quite the trip. There was a lot of nostalgia and fun times to be hard with his wife, Mila Kunis, and their former co-stars.

There are only a few months left before 'That '90s Show' hits Netflix.

The series, which is set in 1995, follows Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna’s (Laura Prepon) daughter Leia Forman (Callie Haverda) as she spends a summer with her grandparents in Wisconsin.

This means the return of Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp AKA Red and Kitty.

With an all-new cast, there are lots of new faces to get to know.

This includes Haverda, Ashley Aufderheide, Mace Coronel, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Reyn Doi, and Sam Morelos.

Fans will also be delighted to know that most of the show's original cast members are returning.

They are set to reprise their roles in guest appearances.

Kutcher will once again play the dumb but loveable Michael Kelso. He'll be joined by Grace, Prepon, Kunis, and Wilmer Valderrama, who are all ready to step back into time.

One person who will be noticeably absent is Danny Masterson.

It's been confirmed that he will not reprise his role as the grumpy Steven Hyde. There's currently a criminal trial against him for multiple rape and assault allegations from 2018.

He was also fired from The Ranch, the Netflix comedy he did with Ashton.

It's hard to say whether the show will explain his permanent absence or just skip over it entirely. They may have to, considering the original cast is returning.

Now that Ashton has been back on set, he's ready to spill all the groovy details on what the experience was really like.

“It was really nostalgic to be back on the set," he said in an interview with Variety.

“It’s all the same folks that made ‘That ’70s Show’, so it was pretty bizarre.”

Ashton explained that he and his wife, Mila Kunis, whom he met on the show, were "contemplating" the decision to come back and reprise their roles.

"We thought, Listen, we’re only in the position that we’re in because of that show, so let’s just go back and do this."

"We just went back and had fun for a week. It was so random and fun," he added.

Ashton also gave a promising update on the show.

“It’s really funny. The new cast is phenomenal," he said. That '90s Show isn't the only reunion he's had lately.

The actor recently reunited with The Office's B.J. Novak 20 years after they worked on Punk'd.

After he read the script for 'Vengeance,' he couldn't pass the opportunity up.

In it, Kutcher plays Quentin Sellers, a Texas music producer. He gets interviewed by Novak's character, a journalist and podcaster who is trying to investigate the death of a former flame.

"I worked with B.J., 20 years ago on Punk'd, and he reached out about doing this, and I read the screenplay and I thought it was one of the best screenplays I'd read in a really long time," Kutcher said.

"And I was like, 'Absolutely, I'll do it,' and the character was fun, and it seemed interesting and worthwhile," Kutcher said.

While there are still a few months to wait for That '90s Show, Vengeance hits theaters July 29.
