"Praying for him & his family and for a speedy recovery", Lopez, who starred as A.C. Slater, added.

"We can confirm that Dustin does have cancer".

Diamond's team confirmed his diagnosis Thursday via Facebook after the actor was admitted to a hospital in his home state of Florida last week. He was also suffering from shingles and had discovered a lump in his throat, which led to the cancer diagnosis.

"By next week, we'll have a much better understanding of the severity of his condition and what treatments he will need so that he's comfortable". They continued: "He was fading in and out, feeling sleepy and exhausted".

"We ask everyone to respect Dustin's privacy during this hard time", his team added.

A Saved By the Bell reboot is now streaming on Peacock, but Dustin wasn't invited back for the new series.
