Blossom Reunion on The Hub; Mystery Girls Premiere Episode Switch on ABC Family

Blossom Reunion - Michael Stoyanov, Mayim Bialik, Joey Lawrence and Jenna von Oy

As we mentioned, reruns of the popular '90s sitcom Blossom are coming to The Hub in a few weeks (starting July 7). Now we have learned that most of the cast reunited for some promos and a photo shoot to celebrate the series returning in reruns. Reuniting were Mayim Bialik, Jenna von Oy, Joey Lawrence and Michael Stoyanov. They got together almost 15 years after Blossom ended. Bialik tweeted, "The HubTVNetwork shoot for the #blossomreunion is going great!!!!" She added, "Um...@joeylawrence @MikeStoyanov @JennavonOy. We still look like young whippersnappers @hubtvnetwork #blossomreunion" We can't wait to see the show back in reruns on July 7 on The Hub! The cast of The Wonder Years recently reunited as well for a piece on the upcoming Wonder Years DVD and of course Boy Meets World is coming back with a new series, Girl Meets World, at the end of this month. It's the return of the '90s, indeed! We're not getting a reunion or retrospective or anything for Blossom, but it's always cool to see a cast reunite, even just for a photo shoot and promos. Stay with us for continued updates! Whoa!


Mystery Girls

Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth reunite in ABC Family's new comedy Mystery Girls, premiering next Wednesday (June 25) at 8:30pm ET/PT. The premiere episode will now be a different episode. The sitcom follows Charlie Contour (Garth), a suburban housewife and mother, and Holly Hamilton (Spelling), who longs for her glory days in the 90's when she was on television starring with Charlie as the "Mystery Girls." Both of their lives are disrupted when Nick (Miguel Pinzon), a witness to a crime and a "Mystery Girls" fanatic, will only speak to the infamous duo, and the former friends must reunite and put their TV crime-solving skills to the test.

In the new premiere episode, "Death Becomes Her," Nick discovers an online rumor going around that Holly is dead, but instead of immediately correcting it, they start selling some of her unwanted belongings online to make extra money and find that someone is trying to sell a sex tape from her TV show days. The 'Mystery Girls' let the rumor flourish and throw a fake memorial service, complete with Holly in disguise, in order to track down the culprit. The actual pilot episode, "Pilot," which was slated to air on this night, will now air a few weeks later on Wednesday, July 16.
