There’s a Blossom reunion in the works! But it’s not a typical reboot. Mayim Bialik is rounding up the cast of the hit ‘90s series for an appearance in Call Me Kat. Blossom alums Joey Lawrence, Jenna von Oÿ, and Michael Stoyanov are set to appear in the season two premiere of the popular comedy series. As reported by People, they will appear as versions of themselves, making a stop in Kat’s town for a celebrity golf tournament.
Call Me Kat features Mayim Bialik as the titular character. Kat is a 39-year-old who is determined to prove that single women can live happy, fulfilling lives. Set in Louisville, the story follows her day-to-day adventures as she juggles her complicated life and her cat café. The series is based on the British sitcom Miranda created by Miranda Hart.
Call Me Kat is written by Darlene Hunt. The series premiered on Fox as a midseason entry in the 2020–2021 television season. Starring alongside Mayim Bialik as Kat are Cheyenne Jackson, Kyla Pratt, Julian Gant, Leslie Jordan, and Swoosie Kurtz in supporting roles. The second season is set to premiere on January 9, 2022.
Mayim Bialik is no stranger to television success and her fans will be excited to see her share the screen with her Blossom co-stars again. The coming-of-age comedy series was Bialik’s breakout television role. Created by Don Reo the series followed Blossom Russo, a teenager living with her father and two elder brothers (played by Lawrence and Stoyanov). Von Oy also played a key role as Six Lemeure, Blossom’s best friend. The show premiered on NBC in 1991 and ran for five seasons.
From 2010 to 2019, Mayim Bialik played neuroscientist Amy Farrah Fowler on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. For her role, she was nominated four times for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. She eventually won the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2015 and 2017. Most recently, Mayim Bialik received a very warm welcome from viewers as the new Jeopardy! host. During The Big Bang Theory star’s debut as temporary host of the syndicated version of the Sony quiz show, ratings rose by 6% from the previous week when Mike Richards’ short-lived tenure ended.
In a recent interview with Newsweek, Mayim Bialik revealed how she landed the highly coveted hosting gig. “Of course I was in touch with Mike as he was my boss at that time, and I don’t wish ill on him, or anyone,” she told the publication. But she also explained that the complexity of the situations is not something that can be summed up easily.
For now, Mayim Bialik is only a temporary Jeopardy! host, but she would love to make the position permanent. She told Newsweek there is no other job she’d rather have. The actress also joked that she would give up her first child to host permanently. “I think my son and I have a close enough bond that he will come back to me,” she said. If she continues to bring in Jeopardy! viewers, her wish might just come true.
