Several of the main characters from That ‘70s Show reprised their roles on the Netflix spinoff That ‘90s Show. But did Danny Masterson make an appearance as Steven Hyde amid his rape trial and guilty verdict? Keep scrolling to find out if ​Masterson appeared, which original stars reprised their roles and more.

Did Danny ​Masterson Appear on ‘That ‘90s Show’?

Despite starring as Hyde on Fox’s That ‘70s Show from 1998-2006, Masterson did not appear on That ‘90s Show amid rape allegations made against him. He was eventually convicted of two counts of rape on May 31, 2023, after a mistrial left the case in limbo.

While several flashback sequences from the original show were featured during the first season of That ‘90s Show, Hyde was not included in any of the archived footage. Additionally, his absence wasn’t addressed.

What Did Danny Masterson Do?

In June 2020, the Los Angeles Police Department charged Masterson with three counts of rape following a three-year investigation. He’d been accused of raping one woman in 2001 and two women in 2003, the victims identifying themselves as Chrissy B., Jen B. and N. Trout.

The first trial took place in November 2022, though it was declared a mistrial after the jury could not come to a conclusion. On November 18, 2022, Judge Charlaine F. Olmedo told the deliberators to take a week-long break and come to a consensus after Thanksgiving.

By November 30, the jury was not able to come to a consensus and they remained divided after seven voting attempts.

“While we are disappointed with the outcome in this trial, we thank the jurors for their service,” the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office told In Touch in a statement at the time. “We also want to give our heartfelt appreciation to the victims for bravely stepping forward and recounting their harrowing experiences. We also are thankful for the hard work of the prosecution team and we will now consider our next steps as it relates to prosecuting this case.”

The May 2023 jury eventually convicted Masterson of sexually assaulting N. Trout and Jen B., but could not come to a verdict in the allegations made by Chrissy B. The actor was promptly taken into custody and is now facing 30 years to life in prison.
