Disco may be dead, but don't start making funeral plans for "That '70s Show."
Heading into its seventh — and reportedly final — season, the long-running Fox comedy is showing signs it might return for an eighth.
"If we all want to give it another year, maybe we could," says Danny Masterson (search), who plays Steven Hyde, the wise-cracking, parentless cool kid who learns on this week's episode that his biological dad is black (played by guest star Tim Reid (search) of "WKRP in Cincinnati").
"As of right now we don't, but at the same time there'd be no reason not to — except that it's just kind of been planned since last year that this would be the last season."
Masterson, 28, says if there were to be another season, he'd like some sort of guarantee that the show would stay the same as it's been. "That '70s Show" is one of the few series that has managed to avoid getting too weird or going downhill as it's aged.
No matter where Fox has placed the show on its schedule over the years, the ratings for "That '70s Show" have always remained solid.
And since its debut in 1998, the show has brought fame and fortune to the its six stars — Masterson, Topher Grace (search), Mila Kunis (search), Laura Prepon (search), Wilmer Valderrama (search) and most especially Ashton Kutcher (search).
The group famously hang out together after work and have become something of a 21st Century Brat Pack.
"At this point ["That '70s Show"] set is like going to summer camp," Masterson says.
Adding to that sense of family, Masterson's brother Christopher ("Malcolm in the Middle") has dated and lived with Prepon for years.
But if the show really does pack it in next spring?
"I've never gone too long without a job," he says. "There's a large talent pool in my age group of really good actors. I have no problem hustling against any one of them."
