Peacock announced the reboot of the 1990s sitcom Saved by the Bell will launch on the platform Wednesday, November 25. That’s the day before Thanksgiving, so you’ll have something exciting to watch on turkey day (in addition to football, of course.)
In the new series, 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.
While it’s not quite a total reunion, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Mario Lopez are back in the new Saved by the Bell series, reprising their roles as Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater. The other familiar cast member coming back to the reboot is John Michael Higgins in his role as Principal Toddman.
