Saved by the Bell Reboot Happening for NBCU Streaming Platform

Saved By The Bell

A Saved By the Bell reboot has been officially saved by NBCUniversal’s upcoming streaming platform.

After rumors surfaced, Peacock, the name for NBCU’s service, revealed its programming lineup Tuesday morning and a Saved By the Bell revival is onboard.

30 Rock writer and Great News series creator Tracey Wigfield heads the reboot, which will feature original cast members. Elizabeth Berkley (who played Jessie) and Mario Lopez (who played A.C.) are the only names mentioned, as of now.

NBC released the following description of the upcoming series: “When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.”

It’s unclear if the other original actors will make an appearance including Mark-Paul Gosselaar.

“Saved by the Bell” celebrated its 30th anniversary in August 2019, and the cast reunited for dinner in celebration.
