25 Years After Leaving Bayside High, Here's What The Cast of "Saved By The Bell" Are Up To Now

- Page 1


AOL TV named Saved By The Bell one of the "20 Best School Shows of all Time," and I'm sure everyone who's reading this article can agree with that sentiment.

The American TV sitcom aired from 1989 to 1993, but has recently been classified as "educational and informational." That's cool and all, but it was also super-duper funny.

It was one of the shows we looked forward to the most in the early '90s, and it helped launch the careers of some of these teen actors.

Here's what the main cast of the show have been up to!

Tiffani Thiessen - Kelly Kapowski

I'm sure most guys watched this show just to ogle at Tiffani's character on screen. The cheerleader was everything a teenage boy wanted in his life, and her popularity led her to continue working as an actress.

The 43-year-old mother of two has launched her own cookery show last year called Dinner At Tiffani's, and her guests included old co-stars like Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley.

Mario Lopez - A.C. Slater

Bayside's wrestling jock has had the most successful career after he left the show.

Lopez is now the host of Extra, MTV reality shows America's Best Dance Crew and MTV's Top Pop Group. He previously hosted The X Factor, Pet Star, Miss America pageant shows, and also co-hosted The Wendy Williams Show.

Jessie Spano - Elizabeth Berkley

Bayside's class president Jessie Spano had both brains and beauty. Berkley had more success playing in Saved By The Bell than in any other projects she's done to date.

The 45-year-old actress has made appearances on shows like New Girl, Dancing with the Stars, CSI: Miami, and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Although her acting career didn't kick off like she'd hoped it would, she had time to publish a guide for teen girls in 2011 called, Ask Elizabeth: Real Answers to Everything You Secretly Wanted to Ask About Love, Friends, Your Body... and Life in General.

But what's Screech, Zach, and Lisa been up to ever since they left Bayside?
