From Hollywood mainstays to child stars! Mayim Bialik, Joey LawrenceWhen they appeared on television, more actors helped pave the way for long-lasting careers. Blossom in the early ‘90s.
The sitcom ran on NBC for five seasons — from July 1990 to May 1995. Bialik (Blossom Russo), Lawrence (Joey Russo), Jenna von Öy (Six Lemeure), Michael Stoyanov (Anthony Russo), Ted Wass (Nick Russo), David Lascher (Vinnie Bonitardi), Portia Dawson(Rhonda Jo Applegate), Barnard Hughes, (Buzz Richman). Finola Hughes(Carol Russo). Courtney Chase(Kennedy Russo was the star of the series.
Bialik, for example, brought her experience as the titular role with her to her other defining TV role. The Big Bang Theory. “I think I’m the only one who didn’t steal anything [from the set] because I thought we’re not supposed to,” the actress exclusively told Us Weekly in May 2019 after wrapping the CBS sitcom. “That’s the thing. On Blossom, we weren’t allowed to take anything.”
Maybe she will get another chance. “We get asked to do [a revival]All the time. Mayim and I talk frequently,” Lawrence revealed to Us in July 2017. “Mayim is interested in doing some type of reunion with the show and so am I. If we can find the right piece and the right way in for a reboot/reunion, we’re both open to it. There’s a lot of talk around it, so we’ll see!”
The actor added at the time: “We’ve talked about [it] and it’s about the public’s excitement continuing to grow, and we’re trying to find the right way in. Then we’re down!”
In June 2014, fans got a taste of what they had hoped for. Bialik, Lawrence, von Oÿ and Stoyanov reunited to shoot promos for the show as it prepared to return in syndication on the Hub Network. The former costars offered a glimpse at the gathering via Twitter.
“Um…@joeylawrence @MikeStoyanov @JennavonOy,” Bialik wrote at the time. “We still look like young whippersnappers.”
Meanwhile, Lawrence tweeted that it was “so awesome” being with his former castmates again: “Feels like no time has passed. Love you all.”
