The cast of My So-Called Life met on Zoom while in quarantine – with the exception of Jared Leto, who didn’t attend the virtual reunion.

“So… This happened the other night,“ Wilson Cruz, who played Rickie Vasquez on the teen drama, wrote on his Twitter with a photo of the cast together. ”Most of the #MySoCalledLife cast was available for what turned out to be a very comforting, sweet, heartfelt and overdue reunion.”

“We all have such love for each other”, he continued. “Even 26 years later. It was overwhelming to see all of those faces together.“

Although Jared Leto, who played Jordan Catalano in the iconic Nineties show, appeared not to have made it, a large amount of the cast was there.

Cruz was joined by Claire Danes (who played Angela Chase), Bess Armstrong (Angela's mom, Patty), Devon Odessa (Angela's former bestie, Sharon), Tom Irwin (Angela's dad, Graham), Mary Kay Place (Sharon's mom, Camille), Devon Gummersall (Brian Krakow), AJ Langer (cool-girl Rayanne), creator Winnie Holzman and her husband Paul Dooley (Angela's grandpa, Chuck).

The teen drama aired on ABC from August 1994 to January 1995 and it followed the ups and downs of Angela Chase and her friends.

Though it only ran for one season, My So-Called Life was one of the first of its kind to tackle homophobia, alcoholism and adultery.

Last year, Danes said of her time on the series: “We were all kind of venturing forth into a big unknown.

“I had just gone through junior high school. I felt bludgeoned, navigating my way through those social gymnastics. I was so bad at it”
