Tiffani Thiessen says a Saved by the Bell reboot is 'never going to happen'

'You’d never be able to do a reboot of that show and do a good job with it,' the 'Dinner at Tiffani's' host tells EW

Nothing to cheer about here, Bayside Tigers fans.

According to Tiffani Thiessen, who played cheerleader Kelly Kapowski in Saved by the Bell, there will never be a reboot of that show, despite people always asking about it — and despite the near-daily announcements of TV shows getting either spin-offs or reboots.

“It’s never going to happen,” Thiessen tells EW with a laugh. “You’d never be able to do a reboot of that show and do a good job with it. The best thing we did was the Jimmy Fallon reunion last year. That’s as close as it will get!”

Still, last season she did have former SBTB cast mate Elizabeth Berkeley on her Cooking Channel show, Dinner at Tiffani’s, and this season plans on welcoming another former colleague: Zack Morris himself. (Cue screams.) 

“Of course!” she says, when asked if Mark-Paul Gosselaar would ever make an appearance. “He came on with his beautiful wife this year. There are some really fun dinner parties this year, along with all new recipes and some return guests like Tim Meadows and Matthew Ross, and new faces like Julie Benz and the Property Brothers. It’s been so fun.”
