He continued to play Screech during the first run of Saved By The Bell on NBC from 1989 to 1993, and kept the character engaged in multiple revivals.
The California-born actor was part of the 1992 TV movie Saved By The Bell: Hawaiian Style and its 1993 sequel Saved By The Bell: The College Years.

Over the past two decades, Diamond has had his share of controversies, including his 2006 sex tape Screeched: Saved By The Smell which he himself directed.
During a Where are they now? specially on OWN seven years later, he said he put his face on a stuntman’s body for the tape.

He also said his 2009 memoir Behind The Bell was a “ disappointment of mine ” due to the descriptions of alleged drugs and sex during the making of the show.
Diamond said the book was written by ghostwriters, claiming, “I’ve talked to a guy a few times, so there is some truth in the book, and a lot of the stories were just sort of throw-aways.”
He said, ‘You know,’ Oh, well, kids were smoking weed and having sex behind the scenes. That stemmed from another just-discarded statement of, “ So was someone taking drugs or co-sleeping on set? ” Well, what do you think? There was a bunch of kids with hormones from, you know, 15, 16 years old. ”

Diamond claimed, ‘That turned into, you know, basically nonsense talking about everyone, which was real, I have nothing but good thoughts and memories for everyone. I was expecting to get a copy for proofreading and okay, or thumbs up or thumbs down, and I got the copy, “Oh, this is done.” ‘
Then in 2015, he spent three months in prison for his role in a bar fight in Wisconsin, in which one of the participants was reportedly stabbed.
He was acquitted of felony, recklessly endangering public safety, but convicted of two crimes: disorderly conduct and carrying a concealed weapon.
