The Saved By the Bell Cast Had a Reunion and Fans Are Demanding a Revival

The Saved By The Bell cast had a mini reunion over the weekend -- or at least most of the cast did. Mario Lopez shared an image of himself with former co-stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Elizabeth Berkley, Tiffani Thiessen and their spouses at dinner, captioning the special moment "Friends forever." Indeed, it's been 30 friggin years since the series we know and loved started airing on NBC and, wading through the comments, fans seem to think they've all held up pretty well. (Some commenters threw plenty of Dustin Diamond shade, but we're gonna take the high road and ignore that.)

This wasn't their first time reuniting. Jimmy Fallon brought the crew back together in 2015, putting Slater (Lopez) back in his famous black unitard and having Jesse (Berkley) say she was "so excited, so scared," in a reference to that iconic episode when Jesse got hooked on caffeine pills.

Of course, in this time of reboots and revivals, the cast's reunion set tongues wagging about bringing the show back in another iteration. And while fans clamor for a revival series is surely understandable, it's a long shot: apart from the sheer incredulity of those kids being back together as adults, Gosselaar currently stars on of the 'pretty goodiest new show of the season' and red carpets literally cannot exist without Mario Lopez standing on them.

Saved By the Bell is currently available for streaming on Hulu.

Relax, Game of Thrones Fans, the Night King Was Just Arrested in Norway

Norwegian authorities have taken matters into their own hands when it comes to protecting the Realm from the icy wrath of the Night King.

The police department in Trondheim, Norway apprehended the snowy Game of Thrones villain after receiving multiple reports of destructive and threatening behavior from the blue-and-grey baddie.

"The police have received many complaints about a man from the northern region involved in criminal activity," they explained in a Facebook post (H/T IndieWire) alongside images of him being taken into custody and booked like the subzero perp he is. "Complaints include animal cruelty and property damage (there have been reports of a wall being destroyed), as well as threats to lay vast areas of land desolate. Our night watch has now apprehended the man to deter any further criminal activity on his behalf." Phew!

Of course, this is all just for fun -- no, this wasn't a Night King copycat trying to ice blast anyone's fences -- and the post is meant to help garner some good will for the station in the case that the public's assistance is needed for real future crimes.

So, for now at least, the northern threat is still very much imminent for our heroes in Winterfell and beyond. But still. It's sort of cathartic to see even a fake(r) Night King taken down a peg, no? If only it were that simple.

In a related bit of news, actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright seems to have thrown some cold water on the theory that the youngest living Stark will become the Night King before the show is over. In a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actor said that he thinks Bran is fighting for the home team right now.

"I think he's the Three-Eyed Raven, who is definitely on the side of the living," he explained. Hempstead-Wright then added that while he'd heard the theory that Bran will warg into the Night King "many times," he could "neither confirm nor deny" the veracity of that idea.

Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9/8c on HBO.

Don't adjust your screens if Selina Kyle looks a little different during this week's series finale of Gotham.

Actress Camren Bicondova has confirmed that her last appearance in the show took place during last week's episode of Fox's DC-centric series.

In a statement posted to Twitter, Bicondova confirmed that the Season 5's second-to-last episode, which aired on April 18, was her final appearance as Selina, writing, "It's important to me that I'm the one to tell you this because it was a choice that I made [...] I wanted to give (the character) Selina Kyle as much respect as possible. Some will say that giving her respect would include seeing the character through the end of the show, which I understand. But, I firmly believe that part of leaving a legacy and being part of a legacy means knowing when to pass the torch to someone else."

"I was blessed to be the vessel for Selina Kyle for her formative teen years, and it only felt right to give someone else that torch for her adult self," Bicondova added.

The final episode will journey ahead to 10 years after the events of the penultimate episode, with Bruce (David Mazouz) returning to his eponymous hometown as the Dark Knight.

Taking over the role of Selina Kyle for the series finale will be Lili Simmons, whom Bicondova said made her "cry tears of joy" because of her fitness for the role and enthusiasm for the role.

"Playing Selina Kyle has taught me so much about myself and what it really means to stand firm and win life," Bicondova added as a token of thanks to fans of the show. "Thank you all for trusting me with her fragile indominitability, her witty comebacks, her ardent fight scenes, and her tasteful style."

A first glimpse at Simmons taking over the role has been revealed by Entertainment Weekly.

The Gotham series finale airs on April 25 at 8/7c on Fox.
