‘Saved By The Bell’: Behind-The-Scenes Photos From Cast Reunion
It was a 90’s nostalgia overload on The Tonight Show on Feb. 4, with the long-anticipated Bayside High reunion finally taking place and hitting millions of viewers right in the childhood!
Even more surreal than seeing the cast of characters — including a very pregnant Kelly Kapowski — back in the halls of Bayside High were the behind-the-scenes snaps the cast shared after their perfect live performance.
Fans were floored to see Jessie and Slater reunited again on Instagram. Elizabeth Berkley, who played Jessie on the show, shared a backstage snap of herself and Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater) looking like a cozy couple once again.
“Get ready for some #Sbtb togetherness on @jimmyfallon tonight!!!! #friendsforever #imsoexcited,” she captioned.
Why Dustin Diamond & Lark Voorhies Didn’t Make The Reunion
While viewers were elated to see the gang all together again, many noticed that not everyone was present. The diva of the group, Lisa Turtle (Lark Voorhies) and their geek friend Screech (the infamous Dustin Diamond) were noticeably absent from the halls of Bayside High.
A source exclusively revealed to HollywoodLife.com why Dustin was absent.
“Jimmy has wanted to do this forever and the animosity between Dustin and the rest of the cast was way too much to handle. The rest of the cast was on board al along but they didn’t want to deal with Dustin‘s constant bullshit, so they set up what we saw last night without him,” our insider revealed. “He was not invited and they got it done without him.
Meanwhile, “Lark would have loved to be part of the Jimmy Fallon skit (as she is a big fan of the show), however due to an intense work schedule she was not available,”the actress’ publicist told E! News.
