The specter of TV revivals has never loomed larger in the wake of Netflix reunions like Fuller House or Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, but if Bayside ever gets back together for more Saved by The Bell, the reunion may not be a happy one. Producer Peter Engel reveals some surprisingly unhappy endings for the original six, as well the actual potential to return.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar as a villain? Stranger things have happened, but yes, the artist formerly known as Zack Morris is Bruce Willis’ latest foe in his newest action-thriller, which surprisingly isn’t going direct to VOD and Redbox. And yet, the first trailer for Precious Cargo looks like your typical, modern Bruce Willis action flick, aka “Bruce needs a quick paycheck.”
It's not like we could ever forget about the legendary Zack Morris and his uncanny ability to slow the whole of time for reasons he didn't nearly often enough take advantage of, but it sure does seem like Mark-Paul Gosselaar is popping up quite a bit these days. We already knew both that TNT's 'Franklin & Bash' had been court-appointed for a third season, as well as that the actor would appear on tonight's 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' premiere as himself, but now it seems that the one-time 'Saved By the Bell' star is putting another ABC sitcom under his belt.
Talk about going meta. In its first season, 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' (or however you're supposed to say that) surprised viewers by including 'Dawson's Creek' star James Van Der Beek not as an original character, but as a hackneyed, has-been version of himself! So now that season 2 sees the down-and-out Dawson looking to cash in on his former fame with a 'Dawson's Creek' reunion, what former child sitcom stars will split the 'Middle' and get 'Saved By the Bell?'
