  • Zack Morris was scheming, amusing, and his friend A.C. often called him preppy. Time out! Did we just say preppy? We meant cool and charming. He is also fondly remembered for introducing the world to those Zack Morris brick phones.

    Gosselaar's character started off in a short-lived Disney sitcom, Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which later turned into Saved by the Bell. In 2001, Gosselaar joined the cast of NYPD Blue and played Detective John Clark for four years. In 2011, he starred in the TNT series Franklin & Bash.

    Gosselaar revealed during an interview with People that he dated his three female co-stars while Saved by the Bell was in production. He married former model Lisa Ann Russell in 1996, and they had two children. The couple divorced in 2011, and Gosselaar married advertising executive Catorina McGinn in 2012. They also have two children together.

  • Bayside High's star athlete, A.C. was the quarterback of the football team, an excellent wrestler, and even on the basketball team in one episode. A.C. was originally written as Zack's rival for Kelly Kapowski's affection, but he became Zack's friend and developed a strong attraction to Jessie Spano, who often criticized him for his insensitive remarks.

    Lopez took some time off after all the Saved by the Bell spin-offs before returning in 1997 to star as Olympic diver Greg Louganis in Breaking the Surface, a TV movie about the legendary athlete. In 2006, he joined The Bold and the Beautiful and in the fall of that year, signed on as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. He would finish in second place.

    Lopez has also served as host on a number of shows, including The X-Factor, America's Best Dance Crew, and Extra. He is married to Broadway dancer Courtney Mazza and has two kids. In 2018, he was named father of the year.

  • Screech was the school nerd at Bayside High. He'd been best friends with Zack since kindergarten and was extremely loyal to him. In exchange for doing Zack's homework and tagging along on his various schemes, Zack protected Screech from school bullies. Despite his belief that he was a ladies man, the other students made fun of his eccentricities. He was goofy, clumsy, and very smart, and had an unrequited love for Lisa Turtle.

    Following Saved by the Bell, Diamond appeared in a number of movies like Pauly Shore is Dead and Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star. In 2006, he directed and released his own sex tape (though he later said a stunt double was used). Diamond also began doing stand up comedy and toured once Saved ended.

    He has also appeared in a number of reality TV shows and, in 2009, published a behind-the-scenes book about the cast and crew of Saved by the Bell from his point of view. The book mentions unflattering and sordid events that his colleagues refuted. Diamond later admitted the book was ghostwritten and parts of it were fabricated. He is also the bass player for his band called Salty the Pocketknife

    On Christmas Day 2014, Diamond was arrested for stabbing a man in a brawl at a bar in Wisconsin and sentenced to four months in jail.

  • The fashionista and gossiper of Bayside High, Lisa was friends with Zack since grade school. There was also some suggestion that she had a small crush on him. One of the running gags of the show was Screech's unsuccessful attempts to woo Lisa, who often responded to him with insults and jokes.

    Following Saved, Voorhies guest starred on The Bold and the Beautiful in 1995 but was released a year later when she refused to act in sex scenes, citing her religious beliefs as a Jehovah's Witness. 

    Voorhies also guest-starred on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Family Matters, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. She has also written several books. In 2015, she opened up about her battle with lupus and denied reports that she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
