Watch the new trailer for the Saved by the Bell reboot
Original characters are back and now their kids are in high school!
Feel like going back to Bayside? The fictional Southern California high school returns as the setting for a new version of Saved by the Bell.
The original teen sitcom aired on NBC from 1989-1993. It spawned two sequel movies and spinoff shows Saved by the Bell: The College Years and Saved by the Bell: The New Class.
NBC is also producing the 2020 version but not for traditional television. The show will debut on the network’s new streaming platform, Peacock.
Several actors from the original series reprise their roles. Mario Lopez, who plays A.C. Slater, features most heavily in the trailer and, presumably, on the new show. Slater now teaches gym class at Bayside High, where the students remind him he’s not as cool as he thinks he is.
Because it’s just a teaser, we don’t get much information about the plot of the show.
However, the synopsis reveals that original main character Zack Morris is now the Governor of California and has gotten in trouble for closing too many schools in working class neighborhoods. He then sends those kids to the highest performing and most privileged schools in the state, one of them being Bayside.
Watch the new trailer below and let us know what you think.
