Zack & Kelly From ‘Saved by the Bell’ Are Probably Divorced By Now

We ’90s kids grew up learning about love from couples like Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski. But Saved by the Bell executive producer Peter Engel recently revealed to TVLine that Zack and Kelly probably didn’t last.

Bayside’s cutest couple eloped in Las Vegas one year after their high school graduation, and their marriage apparently didn’t last long after that. 

When asked if Zack and Kelly would still be married today, Engel said, “Probably not. Well, they’d be married—but not to each other.”

We don’t think we can get on board with Engel’s predictions for the gang, especially if it means kissing a Zack-and-Kelly coupledom goodbye. In our minds, they’ll always be high school sweethearts who made it work.

With an addiction to books and coffee, Sarah hopes to take the world by storm as a book editor. Or social media marketer. Or blogger. (She hasn't quite made up her mind yet, but that's okay because who says you have to be just one thing?)
