During the episode, Lopez told viewers that Diamond had been like a "little brother" to him. They had both been young teenagers when filming the 90s TV show "Saved by the Bell."

Diamond had gone to hospital after experiencing a mystery illness. The doctors ran a few tests, and he was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell carcinoma.

He underwent chemotherapy on January 21. However, he passed away suddenly a couple of weeks after receiving the diagnosis. His friends and fans were all shocked by the news.

Diamond's other "Saved by the Bell" co-stars shared their shock surrounding his death and diagnosis.

Lopez said that the two former co-stars had been in discussion about a possible reunion for Diamond's character Samuel "Screech" Powers on the Peacock reboot version of the show.

He had admitted to trying to persuade Diamond to do something in the reality TV business, which he would have produced. Unfortunately, nothing is possible now, Lopez explained:

"Unfortunately that won't come to fruition now, but he was in good spirits at least. He was pretty positive and optimistic last I spoke to him."

Lopez shared a tribute for the late Diamond on his Instagram page, which featured recent photos of the two together and a message about life's fragility.

Diamond's other "Saved by the Bell" co-stars shared their shock surrounding his death and diagnosis. Tiffani Thiessen and Tori Spelling both shared their own tributes for him.
