‘Saved by the Bell’ Reboot Gets Premiere Date!

Class is in session for the students of Bayside High!

Per a video posted to its YouTube page Tuesday, Peacock revealed that the “Saved by the Bell” reboot will premiere Wednesday, November 25, on the streaming platform.

In the clip, a peacock roams the hallways of the iconic high school.

In the new series, Bayside High alum Zack Morris, played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar, is the governor of California and is met with criticism when he closes too many underfunded high schools.

After he proposes to send the affected students to well-funded schools, such as Bayside High, the new students give the privileged kids a much-needed dose of reality.

Aside from Gosselaar, OGs Elizabeth Berkley, Mario Lopez, and Tiffani Thiessen will reprise their respective roles as Jessie Spano, A.C. Slater, and Kelly Kapowski.

However, original cast members Dustin Diamond, who played Screech, and Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle, will not be returning.

The program will also feature a brand-new cast including Josie Totah, Mitchell Hoog, Belmont Cameli, Haskiri Velazquez, and Alycia Pascual-Pena.

In May, Lopez — whose character is now Bayside High’s gym teacher — revealed to People that the reboot is “a little edgier” but “not naughty.”

“It’s going great. We have like two or three more episodes to go to finish it up, and I think people are gonna like it,” he told the outlet at the time.

“It’s a little edgier and updated, but not naughty by all means,” he added. “It’s a lot of fun and I’m having fun with it.”

The original series ran for four seasons on NBC, from 1989 to 1993.
