Wilmer Valderrama celebrated his return and the confirmed news of a partial That ‘70s Show reunion set to take place on upcoming Netflix sequel spin-off That ’90s Show in iconic Fez style.
Taking to Instagram, the 42-year-old actor posted a video clip set to the stains of Gloria Gaynor’s ‘70s disco anthem I Will Survive, complete with additional sound effects.
Opening with a shot of a dusty box marked ‘Fez 70’ and a rack of vintage clothes, seemingly in the garage, it cut to the star zipping up some flares, spinning to show off his behind and cocking his hip towards the camera.
Wilmer then buttons up his silky orange shirt before pausing, shaking his finger and deliberately unbuttoning his wide-lapel shirt to give a proper glimpse of chest hair, as would be expected.
Donning a zipped blue jacket for the vintage double denim look (the first time around), the camera then pans out to reveal the actor in his full Fez glory as a voice over adds to a round of applause: ‘Yep, still fits!’
The Encanto cast member wrote in the caption: ‘Red? Let’s try this Amédica word again.. 😏 #HelloWisconsin’

Wilmer was clearly marking the news that five of the six original main cast of That ’70s Show have closed deals to return for the 10-episode sequel series, which follows Leia, daughter of Topher Grace’s Eric Forman and Laura Prepon’s Donna Pinciotti, in Wisconsin in 1995.
Topher, Laura, Wilmer and real-life married couple Mila Kunis (Jackie Burkhart) and Ashton Kutcher (Michael Kelso) will each make guest appearances in the sequel series, following prolonged negotiations.
No details have yet been announced as to the details of their appearances, and if they will be together or separately.

His pals were delighted by the hilarious upload, with Topher commenting ‘Missed this guy’, while Twilight actor Kellan Lutz wrote: ‘Yes!! Can’t wait.’
‘Haaaa! Awesome!’ added singer Christina Milian.
Danny Masterson, who played sixth main cast member Hyde, will not be returning as he awaits trial on several counts of rape, all of which he denies.
The spin-off will be overseen by original series creators Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner, while cast members Kurtwood Smith and Debra Jo Rupp return as now-grandparents Red and Kitty
They will both also serve as executive producers, Netflix has said.
There is no streaming date set for That ’90s Show yet.
