It has also been confirmed that Mark-Paul Gosselaar is set to reprise his role as Zack Morris. Tiffani Thiessen may also return. In the video that Mario posted, they were on a set that looked like “The Max,” the diner that the gang used to hang out at on the show.

Saved by the Bell previously ran from 1989 to 1992, but remains a cultural television icon. The new reboot series plot is, “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 over-privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.”
The show will also have some fresh faces, including Josie Totah who will play “Lexi, a popular cheerleader admired and feared by her fellow students.” There is no premiere date for the show yet, but it will air on Peacock, NBC’s new streaming service. Peacock will debut in April 2020.
