Then-and-Now Photos of Your Favorite ’80s TV Show Stars


Our favorite ’80s TV shows may no longer be on the air, but they certainly haven’t been forgotten! This decade of big hair and flashy pop stars spawned some iconic ’80s fashion, like Catherine Bach’s famous Daisy Dukes or Tom Selleck‘s bright colored Hawaiian shirts. Whether you enjoyed a good comedy, like Night Court or a family sitcom like Who’s The Boss?, there was always something good on TV. But little did we know just how big of a mark these famous and much beloved faces were going to leave on the world, long after they moved on to other roles and jobs.

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 30 years since shows like Miami Vice ran, but it’s a testament to their popularity that a lot of these hit shows, like Cheers, launched spinoffs that ran into the next decade! And even if some much loved shows weren’t renewed for another season, the stars moved on to other popular roles. In fact, some actors and actresses have found a place in the hearts of a brand new generation, like Married…with Kids star Ed O’Neill, who’s known to younger audiences as the patriarch Jay Pritchett on ABC’s Modern Family. It’s no surprise, then, when your kids settle down to watch some TV, you might find yourself experiencing more than a little deja vu!

Today, many of our favorite ’80s heartthrobs, like Don Johnson and Harry Hamlin, are happily married with kids of their own. They may be a few decades older, but if you ask us, these ’80s hunks are still pretty handsome. Even if they have a little (or a lot) less hair than they did back in the day!

Scroll through to see what happened to the beloved stars of your ’80s tv obsessions and what they look like today.
