Tommy Chong has revealed that he can be returning to his position as Leo Chingkwake for the Netflix reboot/sequel of That ‘70s Show, titled That ‘90s Show.

Chong’s casting was revealed in an interview on The Dark Mark Show podcast, later confirmed by Netflix in a Deadline article. On Dark Mark, Chong confirmed that his position includes “the grandkids,” and provides, “I don’t know what the grandkids did, but I’ve got a good idea.”

Chong then added that he wasn’t certain if Netflix or the producers wished him to disclose his position.

“They haven’t given me any instructions, so I’m not sure if I’m supposed to talk about it or not… I’ve got a big mouth, that’s what I’m known for.”

Chong confirmed the information on Twitter, calling it “So much fun!” and “Another winner!”

The different factor Chong is understood for is taking part in a stereotypical hippie stoner, first as a part of the ‘70s comedy duo Cheech & Chong, and later in films like Far Out Man and Half-Baked. In 2003, Chong was arrested for selling 7500 bongs and “water pipes” through the Internet, for which he served nine months in federal prison and was fined $20,000.

On That ’70s Show, Chong’s character Leo performed the burnout proprietor of a photograph processing stand at which Danny Masterson’s character Steven Hyde labored. Masterson, who has been accused of rape and can enter right into a felony trial in August, won’t be reprising his position.

70s co-creator Mark Brazill was not tapped by producer/creators Bonnie and Terry Turner to create That ‘90s Show. Instead, the husband and spouse crew opted to carry on daughter Lindsay and former That 70s Show showrunner Gregg Mettler.
