Great news for all the fans looking forward to Saved By The Bell reboot series! After releasing its trailer last week, Peacock announces another cast member from the original drama joining in the revival show. Lark Voorhies returns to reprise her role as Lisa Turtle in the upcoming series.
In an Twitter post, the actress surprised her fans as she shared the exciting confirmation. She wrote, “Lisa Turtle is getting back together with her Bayside High fam! The countdown is on so mark your calendars!”
Voorhies’ character Lisa, is fond of fashion and gossip that she easily became a fan favorite in the original series. She has played the character since its first version, Good Morning Bliss in 1988. Then, she continued throughout the series’ original run, returning too for the specials Hawaiian Style and Wedding in Las Vegas. She also appeared in an episode of the series’ spin-offs, The College Years and The New Class.
In addition, Peacock reports “when the show picks up with Lisa, she is thriving with a successful career in fashion.” However, as to when we will be seeing her or how many episodes she will be on remains unknown.
In February, Voorhies confessed she was hurt when she wasn’t initially invited back to appear after the revival series was announced.
“I have to admit I did feel a bit slighted and hurt when I was not invited to be part of the Saved by the Bell reunion, as well as other cast members’ events,” said the actress who was diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder.
“Yet of course, I also realized that having this puzzling disorder may have played a major part in that factual decision.”
Saved By The Bell: The Reboot
As unveiled recently in its trailer, the new Saved by the Bell gets revamped in many ways. However, the show will still feature some of its original cast members in the upcoming series. Mark‑Paul Gosselaar, Elizabeth Berkley, Mario Lopez, and Tiffani Thiessen will reprise their iconic characters from the 1990s classic.
The story will follow a new generation of diverse students forced to enroll in Bayside High School. This is after Governor Zack Morris (Paul-Gosselaar) makes a controversial decision to close several low-income schools.
Saved by the Bell arrives on Peacock on November 25.
