The Today show had a treat for their viewers this morning, particularly for those with a nostalgic fondness for Saved by the Bell. Not only was Tiffani Thiessen (a.k.a. Kelly Kapowski) there and ready for a bit of TV trivia, but the segment featured a surprise appearance by Dennis Haskins, known for playing the Bayside High School principal on Saved by the Bell. Watch the video ahead.
It begins with Thiessen and the hosts lined up to play the TV trivia game, when Haskins shows up and interrupts, just as they're getting started.
TVGuide shared the above video and commented that Thiessen was "clearly not impressed" by Haskins' surprise appearance. I'm not sure I'd go as far as to say she was unhappy by it, but her smile did seem a bit stiff, which could be chalked up to surprise, if not displeasure. Either way, seeing the two actors on screen together may cause fans to hope even harder that we'll see the whole cast back together for some kind of reunion.
Last month, TMZ reported that Mark-Paul Gosselaar said if the Boy Meets World spinoff turns out to be good, "maybe we'll do a reunion as well." That might have just been a passing comment, but who knows what could happen?
Kelly joined CinemaBlend as a freelance TV news writer in 2006 and went on to serve as the site’s TV Editor before moving over to other roles on the site. At present, she’s an Assistant Managing Editor who spends much of her time brainstorming and editing feature content on the site.
