First there was the "Beverly Hills, 90210" spinoff "90210." Now "Boy Meets World" is getting a reboot with "Girl Meets World." Could a comeback for the cast of "Saved by the Bell?" be far behind?

Star Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played Zach Morris, thinks the door is open. He told TMZ last week that if "Boy" can do it, "maybe we'll do a reunion as well."

A day later, Dennis Haskins, who played principal Mr. Belding, seconded the notion.

"I have always supported a reunion of any kind, including all of us," Haskins told TMZ. "Honestly, the fans still love us and our show so much; they deserve it!"

Indeed, a whole generation of teens and tweens grew up on the escapades of Zach and his fellow Bayside students. "Bell," which premiered Saturday mornings in the late '80s and wrapped in 1994, launched the careers of Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, Tiffani Thiessen, Lark Voorhies and Dustin Diamond.

While the show's squeaky-clean story lines were tame compared with today's teen hits like "Gossip Girl," the real lives of the cast members became fodder for the tabloids and gossip magazines.

Diamond, now 36, went from class geek to porn star when a 2006 sex tape of him and two women in wedding garb was released. In 2009, he released the tell-all book "Behind the Bell" about sexual escapades, drug use and hardcore partying among cast members.

It's no surprise that Diamond is no longer close to the cast. When the stars reunited for a People magazine cover shoot shortly before his book's release, Diamond was noticeably absent. The others have reportedly stayed in close touch.

Here's the latest on Gosselaar, Diamond and the others:
