Twenty-seven years after the show ended, its stars continue to enjoy fame and success. Let's take a look at some of the cast members' lives then and now.

MARK-PAUL GOSSELAAR

In 1989, Mark-Paul Gosselaar was cast on "Saved by the Bell," as precocious Zack Morris, the role that launched him into stardom. The actor, who started his acting career at 10, said of the reboot:

"It looks amazing and the content is great."
