We’re so excited for November 25th! That’s when Saved by the Bell returns with a new series, showing us the next generation of Bayside High, and bringing back such fan favorites as Zack, Kelly, Slater, and Jessie. The new show will be exclusive to the Peacock streaming service, and looks to be an affectionate return to the past that admits that yes, the original show was a little silly.
Here’s how the show is described:
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.
Today, Peacock released a new trailer which even includes an updated version of “Friends Forever” and classic characters like Max and Mr. Dewey! We met so long ago, when we both were young… See it below.
