All your friends are getting married. Some of them are having kids. And now, in case you didn’t already feel like an overgrown child whose life is passing him by, Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence have a preteen daughter. Yes, for the past week, the internet has been abuzz with the news that a Boy Meets World sequel is in the works. Called Girl Meets World, it will focus on young Riley Matthews and her “edgy friend,” Maya. While we’re not sure that revisiting ABC’s TGIF lineup is the best idea, the update on Cory and Topanga has made us wonder what some of our other favorite ’90s teen TV characters might be up to in 2012. After the jump, we check in on (by which we mean, “we imagine”) what they’ve done since last we saw them.
Zack Morris, Saved by the Bell
The last time we saw Zack (well, except for that one Jimmy Fallon appearance), he had just managed to marry his one true love, Kelly Kapowski, despite a disastrous wedding trip to Las Vegas. Unfortunately, after a few years and the birth of a beautiful daughter, the couple called it quits. We’re sure you recall how hot-and-cold they were in high school, and how many girls Zack dated when they were on the outs. So did you really think he’d be ready to settle down before his 20th birthday?
These days, fast-talking Zack is the head of sales at a very important international electronics brand (he was an early mobile phone adopter, after all). He’s been married two more times and fathered at least eight more children, but he’d like to call a “time out” on this post to inform you that what he has with his latest 22-year-old girlfriend is the real thing. Rumor has it he’s reuniting Zack Attack for next spring’s 20-year Bayside reunion — if he can get Kelly to take his phone calls, that is.
