Before there was the "Modern Family," there was "Full House."

Hearts were broken when everyone's favorite '90s bands broke up and teen dramas went off the air, but have no fear, because some of those beloved '90s hits are back.

Some are even better than ever. Click through to see what '90s sensations have gotten back together for old time's sake or have plans to do so.

'Full House' Cast, 25 Years Later

The cast of the popular '90s show "Full House" -- minus the Olsen twins -- got together this weekend for a bit of dancing, drinking and catching up in Los Angeles.

The "Full House" cast, flanked by two unidentified men, included clockwise from left, Candace Cameron Bure, John Stamos, Lori Loughlin, Dave Coulier, Andrea Barber, Bob Saget and Scott Weinger.

Barber, who played Kimmy Gibbler, Tweeted this picture with the comment: "Love my Full House family. Full heart."

Spice Girls at the Olympics

The '90s pop sensation, The Spice Girls, reunited for the closing ceremony at the London games. Their performance was a big secret, but photos leaked four days early of Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Mel Chisholm rehearsing for the big night. In the much anticipated performance, the ladies rode on bedazzled cabs around the Olympic Stadium.

In June, the former chart-toppers also announced the launch of their new musical, "Viva Forever." Although the real Scary, Baby, Posh, Ginger and Sporty will not make an appearance in the musical, their hits, like "Wannabe" and "Spice Up Your Life," will.

The Spice Girls reunited briefly in 2007-2008 for a reunion tour and a performance at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

The all-girl pop group sold more than 75 million albums worldwide before they disbanded in 2000.

Dawson and Friends Heading Back to Capeside?

Dawson, Joey, Jen and Pacey may be heading back to the creek.

"Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23," starring James Van Der Beek as himself, will be holding a mini-"Dawson's Creek" reunion in season two when Busy Phillips guest stars as herself. In the season premiere, Van Der Beek will attempt to reunite his former cast mates. Creator Nahnatchka Khan told TV Guide he'd love to see "Creek" alums Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson and even Katie Holmes guest star as well.

Although there are no solid plans for an actual "Dawson's Creek" reunion, the former stars have spoken out about wanting to go back to Capeside.

"I've always said that I would really love to and I think, independently, we've all been saying that," Williams, 31, said during a Comic-Con press conference in June. "So at some point I hope that it does happen [as] ... a way to honor the past and what a big deal it was for the four or five of us, and what a big deal it was for the people who watched it."

"It would be fun," Holmes, 33, told "Good Morning America" last fall. "I had so much fun working on that show and I loved everyone so much, and I think about it with such fond memories."

Us Weekly even started a petition to get the former best friends on screen again.

'90210' Reunites for Old Navy

You can catch the gang from the most popular zip code on your televisions right now. Former "Beverly Hills 90210" stars Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley and Luke Perry star in Old Navy's new back-to-school commercial promoting their "famous jeans."

The commercial is scary similar to old episodes of the teen drama in which Garth's character, Kelly, had to choose between Perry's character, Dylan, and Priestley's character, Brandon.

"She didn't want to choose between favorites," the commercial says before showing a shot of Perry and Priestley.

"The choice is yours," Perry says.

"So what's it going to be?" Priestly says.

But sorry boys, Garth goes for the jeans instead.

"Beverly Hills 90210" went off the air in 2000 but the show was revived in 2008 with a whole new cast of teens taking over Beverly Hills on the CW's "90210." Former cast members Garth, Tori Spelling, Joe E. Tata and Shannon Doherty have all made an appearance on the show, which is still on the air.

Colin Farrell's New 'Total Recall'

Colin Farrell stepped into Arnold Schwarzenegger's muscles, and shoes, in an uber-sexy remake of the 1990 sci-fi film "Total Recall." Farrell plays Douglas Hauser, the same character Schwarzenegger played 22 years ago.

"I remember all of his films growing up, from 'Commando' to 'Red Heat,' Terminators, 'Running Man' -- and 'Predator,' which still stands to this day as one of the great action films," Farrell told Celebuzz. "So I had an idea of what I was getting into."

The new film hit screens Aug. 3 but only brought in $26 million its first weekend, according to Yahoo.

Critics knocked the new film, calling it "totally unnecessary" when Schwarzenegger's original was not a huge hit.
