LOS ANGELES — “It’s alright ‘coz I’m saved by the bell!” After a 27-year hiatus, the Bayside gang is back! Execs with NBC’s Peacock streaming service released the official trailer for “Saved by the Bell” and it looks interesting. The promo features original stars Elizabeth Berkley (Jessica Spano), Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater), Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris) and Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski). But cast members Dustin Diamond (Samuel ‘Screech’ Powers) and Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) were purposely omitted.

Both have had their fair share of problems so ostracism is hardly a surprise.

Dustin, who was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct, served 3 months in prison in 2015. Lark was diagnosed with a bipolar disorder and paranoid schizophrenia a few years ago. According to a close source, Lark’s team reached out to producers to see about her making a cameo appearance in the reboot for no remuneration and they still turned her down. If you recall, the 46-year-old actress appeared on “The Dr. Oz Show” a few months ago to address being blackballed.

“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,” Lark told Dr. Oz. “Yet, of course, I also realize that having this puzzling disorder may have played a major part in that factual decision. With that in mind, I am truly thankful for having had the chance to work on the show that has been so successful.”

An NBC exec said Lark could reprise her fashionista role sometime down the road.

They just want to make sure she’s not batshit crazy.

“Saved by the Bell” premieres November 25th on PeacockTV.com.

  1. I don’t care, show looks dumb anyway. Lisa dodged a bullet on this one.

  2. It’s weird without screech n lisa n mr belding

  3. The 1 WHYTE boy screech has more problems than any of them and they have the audacity to mess with the Queen. Fuk that show I won’t be watching either

  4. Way to ruin a classic

  5. It’s time that we let the networks know that black audiences matter also. Besides, reboots are just garbage.

  6. Why couldn’t it have been Stacy Dash that had the mental issues?

  7. I can’t wait for the day when Hollywood decides to stop making remakes of movies and tv shows and actually come up with new ideas

    I never really got into that bullshit show, as a teen. Way too corny for me. However, I thought Lark was fine. Didnt she date the White boy on the show, who was the star along with that faux whiteboy Mario Lopez. I wonder if the White boy spoke up on Lark’s behalf, after smashing back in the day. We know Mario didnt. If you aren’t White or light Hispanic, Mario ain’t got nothing for you. He has that Miami Cuban mindset.

    If that was the tall White girl, all of social media, not just Black Twitter would have formed a boycott due to discrimination, for having a mental health disease. The SBTB producers would have found a way to wedge her Becky azz into the mix, even if it required meds, therapists on the set, etc. Lots of Negro Wakeup Calls being administered by the Mayo Clinic in 2020.

  9. am i supposed to know what peacock is or where i would watch this if i wanted to?

  10. No one wants to deal with her crazy ass

  11. @Sixxx6: He’s not on it either lol and queen of what!? Y’all gotta stop throwing that word around

  12. I DON’T BLAME THEM SHE MIGHT SPAZZ OUT.
    BUT THEY SHOULD AT LEAST CUT HER A
    1 SEASON CHECK. SHE DESERVES IT.

  13. She was the only reason many people watched that lame ass show……SMDH the reboot/remake, whatever won’t last!

  14. Tabitha Freeman

    Aww. Where’s Screech?!🤷🏽‍♀️

  15. This looks absolutely horrible 🤦🏽‍♂️ I’ll pass on this one, doubt it will last long

  16. HandsomeBlackJesus(G.O.A.T.)

    Fuck Lisa. That shit look like it’s gonna be funny. She was never funny anyway. Hell it’s other blacks in it

  17. The reboot nobody wanted

  18. Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Screech ain’t there either so why the uproar? Just because she’s black?

  19. No Screech? No Lisa?

  20. There is no Saved By The Bell without Screech!!!

  21. Zack is here/Kelly is here/Slater is here/Jessie is here/Max is here but where’s Lisa/Tori/Screech & Mr. Belding in this reboot ?

  22. Here they go ruining a childhood favorite.

  23. This looks horrible.

  24. Well she’s a bit DIFFICULT ☹️ ‼️😬

  25. AntiBaboonDevice

    No Screech because he became a disgraceful reprobate.

  26. No screetch or Lisa is just not the same🤦🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

  27. I’m excited and ready! They all look exactly the same its actually scary, especially Mario Lopez & Elizabeth Berkley. Its like its still 1990 for them!

  28. This will be ruined by political correctness, wokeness, and forced diversity.

  29. Dont watch this sh***. Pisses me the f*** off the producers and the cast oughta be ashamed of themselves especially for not speaking out in defense of her.

  30. This looks like a mess

  31. I’m sorry girl but mental illness aint no joke.. and when these people become volatile they are really unpredictable.. I have experienced it with my mother… I say just move on and try something else.

  32. Daniel Salvador

    What a horrible idea. Can’t believe they spending money on this. 🥱

  33. Everybody knows she has mental issues, so They could of given her a small part; or even write it into the show to make that a teachable moment about mental health. Completly excluding her from the show isn’t gonna help her mental state. That’s gonna make her feel bad and cause her to feel depressed and maybe become even more crazy.

  34. @Danielle: They left screech off too, are you mad for both of them or just her?

  35. How many fuckin times they gonna reboot that lame shit? Nobody wanna see they old asses

  36. She might flip out. She does look kinda off. That clown makeup bothers me. Hope she does well tho

  37. She isn’t there because she suffers from mental illness and isn’t healthy enough to be on a show. Fuckin idiots always making drama.

  38. I loved saved by the bell but I’m not really feeling this trailer, I’m still gonna watch it tho.

  39. Halie Brandenburg

    I’m probably the only one but I really didn’t want Zack and Kelly to end up together. Kelly treated him so poorly in the original series, she constantly chose others guys over him….when she cheated with that Jeff guy that worked at the Max and the affair with her professor in college. Zack always loved her through everything but he was always her second choice. I just think he deserved better.

  40. Where. The. Hell. Is. Screech……

  41. Lark Voorhies was an important part of that show. She can’t help that she suffered with mental illness.

  42. I hope this means Lark is doing much better after her official diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder. It seems that going public with her diagnosis opened up doors and created more understanding. I have a lot of respect for her going public with it and doing her part to de-stigmatize mental illness. She was always my favorite on the show and I look forward to seeing her again.

  43. WE LOVE YOU LARK BABY!!!!!! WELCOME BACK!!!!!!
    WELCOME BACK!!!!!!
    WELCOME BACK!!!!!!

  44. Umm no thanks

  45. Sharissa Davision

    Well this show gon flop like 902010 did in 2019. For the last time leave the classics in the 90s please.

  46. Dezman Anderson

    Lisa Turtle was every young black boy’s (and perhaps white…lol) epitome of perfection!!! ❣❣ And she will always be. No bad headlines can ever tamper with that image!

  47. Marcos Echevarria

    Leave the past in the past. Please stop with this reboots trend and start making original content again. This show looks terrible! And is not even close to the original TV show.

  48. I’ll give the show a chance. At least most of the old cast is back and the show isn’t disregarding the original.
