Since last March, Jimmy Fallon has been trying to orchestrate a reunion of the Saved By The Bell cast. Over the past year, castmembers Dennis Haskins and Mario Lopez stopped by for skits. Elizabeth Berkley and Lark Voorhies supposedly agreed to appear and Mark-Paul Gosselaar even stopped by to resurrect his character, Zack Morris.
Everything seemed to be going well but then Fallon got scooped by People magazine who put together a photoshoot reunion in August. Haskins wasn’t there and Dustin Diamond was excluded but the rest of the cast (including Tiffani-Amber Thiessen) did take part. Now, a year later, Fallon has admitted defeat.
As a consolation however, he reunited the cast of California Dreams, the show that followed Saved By The Bell. Brent Gore, Kelly Packard, William James Jones, Heidi Lenhart, Jennie Kwan, Jay Anthony Franke, and Michael Cade all showed up last night to give an update on what they’re doing and to perform the show’s theme song.
Take a look…
What do you think? Was the California Dreams reunion a suitable replacement for Saved by the Bell? Which was the better show?
