Get ready to go back in time to Bayside High, because Saved by the Bell has a reboot coming to NBC's Peacock streaming service! The reboot trailer just dropped and there's a lot to unpack. 

The new show will follow up with the original cast...30 years later! Some of the original cast members including Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar who will all be reuniting for the reboot.

Exciting... we know! Here are all the details we have so far:

  • Who will be in the cast of the reboot?

    Mario Lopez will reprise his iconic role as Slater, who is now a middle-aged PE coach at Bayside reliving his glory years. In the trailer we see Slater giving out 'hook-up' advice to his fellow students only to be put in his place by Dexter Darden's Devante: "You're a gym teacher and I saw you eating soup in your car."

    As Elizabeth Berkley's Jessie also appears, new characters are introduced. Mitchell Hoog will appear as Zach Morris's son, Mac, and Belmont Cameli as Jessie's son, Jamie. Missing from the trailer is Mark-Paul Gosselaar's Zack who is now the governor of California in the show. 

    Other new faces expected to appear on the show include Josie Totah, Haskiri Velazquez and Alycia Pascual-Pena. Totah came out as transgender in 2018 and is well known for her reoccurring role on Disney's hit series, Jessie, as Stuart. Totah is set to play a popular cheerleader at Bayside high who is admired and fear by fellow peers. 

    The plot.  

    "When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest-performing schools in the state—including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the overprivileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality,” according to Glamour. 

    When will the reboot of Saved by the Bell premiere?

    Amid this strange and unusual time during the Coronavirus pandemic, all productions for NBC's Peacock have been put on hold since March. However officials are hoping that the revival of 'Saved by the Bell' can still premiere sometime this year, Variety reported. The reboot will most likely launch sometime after Peacock becomes available to everyone on July 15, 2020. As of right now, only Comcast customers, and Xfinity 1 or Flex subscribers have access to the new NBC streaming service. 

It’s about time we revisit Bayside High. With the Bayside High crew getting back together, what can be better? Will this reboot be as successful as the original?
