Baywatch was one of the most popular TV series during the 90s. Good times. It is an action drama series about the Los Angeles County Lifeguards who patrolled the beaches of Los Angeles County. The sun, sand, and fine-looking lifeguards made the perfect mix for the debut of the show in 1989. Unfortunately, NBC wasn’t completely satisfied with the characters and storyline so it was canceled abruptly after one season. But miraculously it was given a second chance in 1991 and it became one of the most-watched television shows in the world. The cast members and red swimsuit beauties quickly became household names and transformed formerly unknown actors into international superstars. So maybe now you’re wondering what happened to your favorite lifeguards? Do they still look steamy in their swimwears or is it better to just look back on the good old glory days? Let’s take a look at our favorite Baywatch lifeguards and see what they’ve been up to since their last big rescue.
