Mark-Paul Gosselaar & Dennis Haskins say they’d be down to visit the hallowed halls of Bayside High. Wouldn’t we all?
90210 did it. Boy Meets World is doing it. And now, it sounds like the door could be open for Saved By The Bell to make a comeback of its very own! Two of Bayside’s finest — Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played blond beauty Zack Morris, and Dennis Haskins, who (sort of) kept the gang in line as Principal Richard Belding — have recently spoken out, saying they’d love to do another reunion… or even a potential spin-off series.
TMZ caught up with Mark, 38, on Jan. 21 — and by “caught up,” I mean literally chased him down a Los Angeles street, camera in hand — and he said, “Maybe we’ll do a reunion.”
OK, so it wasn’t exactly a confirmation — or anything close to it — but it was enough to give a ’90s kid like me a glimmer of hope.
“I have always supported a reunion of any kind including all of us” Dennis told TMZ on Jan. 23. “Honestly, the fans still love us and our show so much; they deserve it!”
We do, Dennis! We really, really do.
Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time the Saved By The Bell cast will have reunited since the original series ended in 1993…
The Last ‘Saved By The Bell’ Reunion
Most of the original gang — Mark-Paul, Mario Lopez, Tiffani Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley and Lark Voorhies — posed for a People photo shoot in Aug. 2009, though Dustin Diamond declined to participate. (He was probably too busy writing another tell-all or filming his own sex tape. You know, important stuff.)
Jimmy Fallon tried to rally the troops for a reunion on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that October, and even though Mark-Paul was the only cast member who ended up doing it, he went above and beyond the call of duty. Dressed in full Zack Morris garb — including the golden hair — he played to the millions of fans at home, giving them a taste of what Zack and the gang might be up to today.
