Saved By the Bell is back. Yes, the Saturday morning show that everyone has watched (but not everyone will admit to watching) is coming to the Peacock streaming site, debuting on November 25. The show is not a reboot, but a sequel to the series that featured a short-lived follow-up Saved By the Bell: The College Years, and a sequel Saved By the Bell: The New Class.
Here’s an official description of the new series, courtesy of USA Today:
“When California governor Zack Morris (Time out Governor Zack Morris?! Time in!) 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.”
The show stars Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez from the original Saved By the Bell series and will feature recurring appearances by Mark-Paul Gosselear and Tiffani Thiessen.
Here’s the trailer:
Horndogs from around the world will recall lusting over some of the show’s starlets once they graduated to other shows including Elizabeth Berkley and Tiffani Thiessen. Undoubtedly fans hit the jackpot when Elizabeth Berkley starred in the film Showgirls, proving once again that no one has ever gone broke underestimating the taste of the American public. The film was panned by critics, but loved by moviegoers looking for a way to see a skin flick without having to navigate old men in raincoats rubbing one out in their popcorn bucket at the local adult theater.
According to the website Deadline:
Saved by the Bell premieres on Peacock on November 25. Tracey Wigfield writes and executive produces alongside executive producers Franco Bario and Peter Engel. Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, produces the series.
