It’s been 29 years since the crazy antics of Zack Morris, AC Slater, Kelly Kapowski, Jessie Spano, Lisa Turtle and Samuel Screech Powers first came into our lives on the hit television series Saved By The Bell. While that might seem like a long time, it certainly looks like the cast has managed to still stay friends forever!
On Wednesday, Mario Lopez (who played AC Slater on the series) subbed in for Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show and he even brought his own co-host. Lopez invited his Saved By The Bell classmate Tiffani Theissen (who played Kelly Kapowski on the series) to join him for a segment.
Theissen has a cookbook which she as promoting, so the two reunited and then made some yummy and delicious adult beverages together. After toasting to their nearly 30 years of friendship, Lopez and Theissen sat down to talk about their time spent on the series. They even talked about introducing Saved By The Bell to their own children. Theissen’s kids enjoyed it and wanted to watch more meanwhile Lopez’s kids just wanted to know why their dad’s hair looked like that.

Saved by the Bell underwent many iterations throughout its time on television but it’s best known for the seasons which took place at Bayside High. The series followed a group of teenagers growing up in the 90s and dealing with every day high school pressures such as dating, drug use, alcohol and more. The series first premiered in 1987 with the Good Morning, Miss Bliss class and ran for six seasons after that. It also yielded several spinoffs including The New Class.
Currently, all Saved by the Bell episodes can be streamed through NBC’s streaming app for a limited time.
