mark paul gosselaar lisa ann russell Mark Paul Gosselaar, Lisa Ann Russell finalize divorce just as 'Franklin & Bash' premieres on TNTFor all you girls born in the early 80s, Zack Morris is back on the market. Cue the audience “wooooo” sound effect.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar and now-ex-wife Lisa Ann Russell (pictured above, in 2006) have finalized their divorce after nearly 15 years of marriage, reports TMZ. The couple filed the papers on May 27 in the Los Angeles County Superior Court and are keeping the custody agreement private. The couple has two children together, Michael, 7, and Ava, 5.

Perhaps Gosselaar can find solace with his new on-screen bromance partner Breckin Meyer. The two star in TNT’s new lawyer series “Franklin & Bash” and Gosselaar tells Zap2it that the characters are realistic in their friendship.

“These are true characters and through out the season they progress and
you realize, ‘OK, these are guys that I like watching, because they have
a lot in common with me. I know a guy like this guy.’ They’re not these
completely broad characters who are untouchable,” says Gosselaar.

“Franklin & Bash” premieres Wednesday night (June 1) at 9 p.m. ET on TNT.
