Saved by the Bell returns to our TV screens Wednesday, November 25 on Peacock, and a new generation can now join those of us who grew up with Zack, Kelly, Lisa, Slater, Jessie, and Screech.
Peacock’s new series introduces a new class of kids — and unlike the 1990s Saved by the Bell: The New Class, these characters actually are unique and not just carbon copies of those who came before. Additionally, this series lovingly pokes at some of the aspects of the original show that didn’t make much sense.
So, below, meet Lexi, Mac Morris, Jamie Spano, Daisy, Aisha, Devante, Principal Toddman, and the actors who will be ensuring that things will continue to be “all right” at Bayside in the year 2020… and come back to KSiteTV in the coming days for our review of the new show!
When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many underfunded high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the most well-funded schools in the state – including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the privileged Bayside kids (who never have a problem that can’t be solved in twenty-two minutes) a much-needed dose of reality.
Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Mario Lopez star in the new SAVED BY THE BELL series, reprising their roles as Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater. John Michael Higgins also stars as Principal Toddman alongside the new class featuring Belmont Cameli, Dexter Darden, Mitchell Hoog, Alycia Pascual-Peña, Josie Totah and Haskiri Velazquez.
Tracey Wigfield serves as writer and executive producer for the series, alongside executive producer Franco Bario. Peter Engel also serve as executive producer. SAVED BY THE BELL is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
