Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley, who played the characters on Saved by the Bell and a few of its assorted spinoffs, were both spotted on the set of the series’ upcoming revival.
By the looks of the photos obtained by The Daily Mail, it would appear that neither character has changed that much over the past several years.
Lopez’ Slater, known as a sensitive jock, was sporting a sleeveless top and jeans, while Berkley’s perpetually-overachieving Spano skewed much more business formal. The two characters were an item during the original run of the beloved 90s sitcom, so it’ll be interesting to see how their characters pick up where they left off.
Lopez posted a video to Instagram to confirm that they’d just shot a promo for the revival.

Along with Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley, Mark-Paul Gosselaar will also be reprising his role as Zack Morris, only he’s ascended from Bayside’s most popular preppy to the governor of California. The revival will find Gov. Morris in hot water after closing too many low-income schools across the state.
It was also announced last month that Josie Totah will lead the new cast of characters. Totah will play Lexi, a beautiful, sharp-tongued cheerleader who also happens to be the most popular girl at Bayside High. The actress previously starred alongside Mindy Kaling and Anders Holm in NBC’s short-lived sitcom Champions.
The Saved by the Bell revival is slated to premiere on Peacock, NBC’s upcoming streaming platform which will launch this summer.
