This morning, Peacock dropped the new trailer for the upcoming Saved By the Bell reboot/Revival. Before we say anything specific, we will say that we have some hope for the show as it’s showrunner is Tracey Wigfield, who worked had previously worked on 30 Rock. With that said, this trailer feels more like a parody sketch than a real show.
Slater is the single man/ high school gym coach. Zack is now the governor of California. Jesse is, a businessperson we think?, and Kelly is also there. Amazingly, their kids all go to Bayside. We’ll check it out when it drops, but we’ve got a feeling that the new series will last just about as long as last year’s Beverly Hills 90210 revival did.
The series, which drops on Peacock November 25th, possibly because it appears to be an obvious turkey, stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, Belmont Cameli, Tiffany Thiesson, Dexter Darden, Mitchell Hoog, Alycia Pascual-Peña, Josie Totah, and Haskiri Velazquez.
The highly anticipated reimagining of SAVED BY THE BELL will premiere on Wednesday, Nov. 25 on Peacock. 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. Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Mario Lopez star in the new SAVED BY THE BELL series, reprising their roles as Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater. John Michael Higgins also stars as Principal Toddman alongside the new class featuring Belmont Cameli, Dexter Darden, Mitchell Hoog, Alycia Pascual-Peña, Josie Totah and Haskiri Velazquez. Tracey Wigfield serves as writer and executive producer for the series, alongside executive producer Franco Bario. Peter Engel also serves as executive producer. SAVED BY THE BELL is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
