The old gang is back together again! Peacock’s Saved by the Bell releases its newest trailer offering a first look on the rebooted series.
Original cast members Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tiffani Thiessen reprise their roles Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski, respectively. Mario Lopez also returns as A.C. Slater, and Elizabeth Berkley as Jessie Spano.
In the recent version of the famed ’90s Saturday sitcom, Zack is a governor dealing with students transferring to Bayside High School. His own son attends Bayside, along with Jessie’s son. Slater is Bayside’s gym teacher.
In a true reference to the old series, A.C. calls “Yo, mama!” on Jessie, who’s now the school’s guidance counselor. “How do you think this year is gonna go for these new students?” she asks. A.C. then responds back, “I’m psyched.”
It also featured a new generation of Bayside High students, and those four original cast members gathered for a reunion.
In a rather amusing clip, the new students poke fun at A.C. who is partying with the kids.
“You’re the man, coach. When I grow up I want to be just like you — a single, childless adult, who parties with kids,” one student quips to Lopez’s character.
Saved By The Bell Cast
Saved By The Bell stars Mario Lopez as A.C. Slater, and Elizabeth Berkley as Jessie Spano. While the previous two return full time in the reboot, Gosselaar and Thiessen will only make guest appearances during season 1.
Meanwhile, the reboot will follow new students, including Zack’s son Mac Morris (Mitchell Hoog), Jessie’s son Jamie Spano (Belmont Cameli). They will be joined by Daisy (Haskiri Velazquez), Aisha (Alycia Pascual-Pena) and Lexi (Josie Totah).
Saved By The Bell Plot and Release Date
The show’s official synopsis reads:
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.
