NBC is joining the streaming service war over the next year and the network is pulling out all the stops. It was announced today that the network has ordered a sequel series for the classic sitcom Saved By The Bell.
The new series is set to feature a cavalcade of familiar faces. Series originals Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez have already signed on to reprise their roles of Jessie and AC. Mark-Paul Gosselaar is also in talks to return as Zack Morris.
Take a look at the synopsis below!
“The new straight-to-series comedy explores what happens when California Gov. Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools and proposes the affected students be sent 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 original series is a cult classic. It ran from 1989-1993. This new series, however, will serve as the third sequel series. Previously, Saved by the Bell: The College Years & Saved by the Bell: The New Class had run on NBC throughout the ’90s. The series has also spawned two feature-length films, Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style & Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas.
NBC’s streaming service has officially been dubbed Peacock. It will feature a bevy of new content as well as the exclusive streaming of classic shows The Office and Parks and Recreation.
