HOLLYWOOD — “It’s alright ‘coz I’m saved by the bell!” Move over “Beverly Hills 90210.” There’s another 90s sitcom set to launch a reboot. After a 26-year hiatus, “Saved by the Bell” is coming back. The new Bayside High series is under construction and it will appear on NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming service. The cast is anchored by original stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano) and Mario Lopez (AC Slater). But their roles are much different this go round. After all… Elizabeth is 47-years-old. Mark-Paul and Mario are both 45.

There’s no question the storyline will have to account for their age. “Obviously we couldn’t be in high school still,” Mark-Paul explained during a recent chinwag. “So you’d have to be creative with the premise. But it’s fun to think about. And who knows? You never say never.”

When asked to expound upon a potential diegesis, Mark-Paul replied: “There’s talks, there’s always talks.” In addition to portraying their signature characters, Mario and Elizabeth will help produce the broadcast. Still no word on the involvement (or lack thereof) of fellow co-stars Tiffani Amber Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski), Dustin Neil Diamond (Samuel “Screech” Powers) and Lark Voorhies (Lisa Marie Turtle).

Are you excited about a reboot?

Will the show be the same without Kelly, Screech and Lisa?

    I’m so excited

  2. Zack was hot

  3. Saved By The Bell just won’t be the same without Screech and Lisa.

  4. Hollywood really has run out of ideas.

  5. They might as well. It’s not like any of them are A list celebrities.

  6. I don’t know about a saved by the Bell reboot how they going to do that without Lisa and screech

  7. Saved by the Bell reboot without Lisa? I won’t have it 😅

  8. Well 90210 is working out well.

  9. Oh god. All these reboots….sounds like trash

  10. They shud make a reboot but about Screech being a criminal.

  11. Priscilla Lopez

    I can hardly wait for the reboot and his new sitcom….#MIXEDISH

  12. Dammit! They should have made more episodes!! Even years later!!

    So glad they’re rebooting it but it needs to be on the main network instead of the stupid app.

    I’ll pass

  15. Quitt3rs never w1n

    Guys, Lisa fucked up her face with plastic surgery. She doesn’t even look like a human being anymore so she’s definitely not going to be cast on the reboot, and screech i believe is still in prison for stabbing someone in the stomach and almost killing them in a bar so he’s definitely not going to be cast so just put them out of your mind for the reboot

  16. No more reboots. Just let good things end. Create new stuff not based on anything

  17. Shirlee Bostrom

    Zack Morris is trash!

  18. I think if a show is going to be rebooted it should at least be a good show. Sbtb was fairly successful but it was also incredibly stupid. Come on you can’t just reboot anything! Enough already!

  19. I thought Lark Voorhes aka Lisa Turtle died? And isn’t Dustin Diamond aka Screech Powers in jail? And the show would flop. Just like you thought 90210 would flop even though it didn’t. Second season i think is in summer 2020.

    Battlestar Galactica would be awesome!!

    Without Lark Voorhies and Dustin Diamond they shouldn’t even do it…it’s gonna be wack.
