Lark Voorhies WILL Be in ‘Saved by the Bell’ Reboot After All!

Lark Voorhies will reprise her role as Lisa Turtle in the “Saved by the Bell” reboot.

On Thursday, Entertainment Weekly shared the first look at Voorhies in the highly anticipated Peacock series.

“When the show picks up with Lisa, she is thriving with a successful career in fashion,” said the NBC streaming service.

It is unclear how many episodes Voorhies will appear in.

In a February episode of “Dr. Oz,” she admitted to being “hurt” when she said she was not invited to the reunion.

“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, as well as other cast members’ events,” said the actress, who was previously diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. “Yet of course, I also realized that having this puzzling disorder may have played a major part in that factual decision.”

EW reports that at the time, neither Mark Paul Gosselaar (who played Zack Morris) nor Tiffani Thiessen (who portrayed Kelly Kapowski) had been asked to return either.

In the new series, Zack Morris 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, the new students give the privileged kids a much-needed dose of reality.

In addition to Voorhies, Gosselaar, and Thiessen, OGs Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez are set to make appearances.

However, Dustin Diamond, who played Screech, is not expected to return.

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

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

The “Saved by the Bell” reboot will premiere Wednesday, November 25, on Peacock.
