Welcome Back, Kotter: John Travolta and Cast to Reunite for TV Land Awards

4 March 2011 5:59 AM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

As part of the upcoming TV Land Awards, TV Land will be reuniting members of the cast of Welcome Back, Kotter. The ABC sitcom was a huge success and in its early years helped launch the career of John Travolta.

At this point, the reunion will include Travolta ("Vinnie Barbarino"), Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs ("Freddie 'Boom Boom' Washington"), Ron Palillo ("Arnold Horshack"), and Marcia Strassman ("Julie Kotter"). Other participants are still being added so hopefully that means that Gabe Kaplan ("Mr. Kotter") and Robert Hegyes ("Juan Epstein") will also take part.

I believe the last time there was a Welcome Back, Kotter reunion was as part of ABC's 50th Anniversary Celebration. For the 2003 event, Kaplan, Travolta, Hilton-Jacobs, Palillo, Hegyes, and Strassman all reunited on-stage. Travolta even briefly reprised his popular character for some shtick with Kaplan.
