11 Reunions That Every '90s Kid Is Waiting For, From 'Clarissa' To The Spice Girls
If there's one thing better than rewatching or relistening to your '90s favorites, it's seeing that the stars of your favorite '90s TV shows, movies, and bands have reunited in present day. While we have had many '90s reunions already, there are still many reunions that every '90s kid is waiting for, because they would just be so good. Because even with the relentless march of time, it's fun to see these groups get back together for old times' sake.
Previous reunions have been so much fun. On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon reunited cast members of Saved By The Bell, Good Burger, and Full House in an epic sketches. In 2014, Jimmy Kimmel brought together former Friends co-stars Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, and Courteney Cox on his late night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live, two years before most of the cast would reunite at a tribute to sitcom director James Burrows. In 2015, the cast of Gilmore Girls reunited at the ATX TV Festival in Texas, before news of the news of the Netflix revival series A Year in the Life broke and later premiered on the streaming service in 2016.
Although fans have been treated to many fun '90s reunions, these are the ones that need to happen — pronto.
1. 'Clarissa Explains It All'
How is it that we haven't had a Clarissa reunion yet? Talk of a reunion or sequel series heated up in 2014, when series creator Mitchell Kriegman wrote a sequel novel Things I Can't Explain, which follows Clarissa into her 20s.
In 2015, Clarissa star Melissa Joan Hart told E! News she would approach a potential reunion or revival cautiously. "I think it would have to be done really right," she said. "You can only go back to the well so many times...it's either going to be done really well and people will only know me as this one character for the rest of my life, or it's going to be really embarrassing and I'll never work again."
2. The Full Cast Of 'My So-Called Life'
Various cast members of the short-lived '90s teen drama have reunited over the years, but there has never been a full cast reunion which has included Claire Danes and Oscar winner Jared Leto. Red hair and flannel would be optional, of course.
3. The Full Cast Of 'Friends'
I'm thankful for the Friends reunions that we have gotten over the years, but I'm also disappointed that none of them have included all six cast members. In 2016, Matthew Perry was unable to make the reunion at the James Burrows tribute. Friends is a comedy series in which each cast member is a crucial part of the group, so I think it's worth another shot to get all six buddies in the same place at some point.
The '90s hit medical drama had a revolving door of cast members throughout its 15-season run, but a reunion of some of the original cast — which included Noah Wyle, George Clooney, and Julianna Margulies — would be pretty cool to see.
Earlier this year, former band member Lance Bass teased a reunion of the full group, but it turned out to be just that, with no actual reunion tour planned. But the band is set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year, so a reunion of all band members — including Justin Timberlake — could be on the horizon.
6. 'Fight Club'
Just imagine how cool — and intense — it would be to get Brad Pitt and Edward Norton back in the same room together. In a 2011 interview, Norton has said they he and Pitt definitely wanted to work together again.
“It’s a possibility," Norton said, according to the UK's Film News. "We’ve talked about it but me and Brad being in something together is a complicated thing to put together.”
7. 'Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead'
Christina Applegate and Josh Charles starred in this hilarious comedy about a teen who masquerades as a career woman during summer vacation after the family babysitter dies unexpectedly. It's one of my '90s favorites and it would be so cool to see the cast together again.
8. Spice Girls
Fans have been clamoring for a second Spice Girls reunion since the band last reunited at the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. But alas, another full reunion may not be in the cards, according to the latest comments from Victoria Beckham — at least, for now.
9. Smashing Pumpkins
If you used to sing along to "Tonight, Tonight" and "Today" back in the '90s, you're hoping for a reunion of the original members of this band, too. Last year, frontman Billy Corgan said in a Facebook video, "There’s excitement there that surrounds the idea that maybe there’s the possibility that we will get back together.”
The band gave us such hits as "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova," but Noel and Liam Gallagher had a pretty big breakup in 2009. Perhaps once the dusts settles, these two can get the band back together and make music again.
11. The Full Cast Of 'She's All That'
Last year, stars Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cooke had their own mini-reunion — which Prinze posted about on social media — but what about the rest of the cast? A reunion with the rest of the cast, which included Matthew Lillard, Dule Hill, and Anna Paquin, would totally awesome.
So here's hoping '90s kids can get their wish and see these reunions happen in the near future.
