[via press release from FOX]

FOX RENEWS "THAT '70s SHOW" FOR AN EIGHTH SEASON

Fox Broadcasting Company has ordered an eighth season of the comedy series THAT '70s SHOW, it was announced today by Gail Berman, President, Entertainment. The nostalgic series airs Wednesdays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT).

"THAT '70s SHOW is one of the strongest comedies on television," said Executive Producer Tom Werner. "I am thrilled that this outstanding ensemble is returning next season. After all, it's only 1979."

THAT '70s SHOW revolves around a group of friends growing up and becoming young adults in the suburbs of Wisconsin. But rites of passage aren't all that easy at a time when jumpsuits and platforms are the epitome of cool. The gang includes: Everyman ERIC FORMAN (Topher Grace); his independent girlfriend DONNA (Laura Prepon); the good-looking but gullible KELSO (Ashton Kutcher); conspiracy theorist HYDE (Danny Masterson); Hyde's peppy girlfriend JACKIE (Mila Kunis); and FEZ (Wilmer Valderrama), the foreign kid who's soaking up American culture like a sponge. There's also Eric's stern father RED (Kurtwood Smith); upbeat mother KITTY (Debra Jo Rupp); and Donna's dad BOB (Don Stark), who has a penchant for perms and medallions.

THAT '70s SHOW continues to feature the signature elements that made it a hit, including the surreal dream sequences, the 360-degree basement scenes and the classic '70s score. Over the years, the series has hosted numerous guest stars/'70s icons, including Brooke Shields, Gloria Gaynor, Paul Anka, Shirley Jones, Danny Bonaduce, Alice Cooper, Marion Ross, Eve Plumb, Valerie Harper and Roger Daltrey. Other guest stars include Luke Wilson, Lindsay Lohan, The Rock, Jack Osbourne, Seth Green, Jessica Simpson and Fred Willard.

THAT '70s SHOW is a Carsey-Werner production created by Bonnie Turner, Terry Turner and Mark Brazill. Executive producers are Jeff Filgo, Jackie Filgo, Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner.
