The Saved By The Bell reboot will be renewed for a second season on Peacock!
The streaming service announced on Thursday that an additional 10 episodes have been ordered for the reboot series. “I’m thrilled that Saved by the Bell has been renewed. I’ve been blown away by all the love for the show and can’t wait to go back and make more episodes,” writer and executive producer Tracey Wigfield shared in a statement.
“Hopefully we stay on Peacock for many more seasons, and then in 30 years, somebody does a reboot of our reboot and invents the threeboot,” she added jokingly.
The reboot tells the story of the original Bayside High crew as adults. Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s Zack Morris is now the governor of California and decides to send students from a low-income high school to some of the state’s best schools, including Bayside High.
Mario Lopez’s A.C. Slater, who is now Bayside’s gym teacher, and Elizabeth Berkley’s Jessie Spano also appear in the reboot and reunite at the school alongside the group of new students. Lark Voorhies and Tiffani Thiessen have also reprised their roles as Lisa Turtle and Kelly Kapowski.
The original Saved by the Bell ran on NBC for four seasons from 1989 to 1993. The sitcom followed a group of high school friends, played by Gosselaar, Lopez, Berkley, Thiessen, Voorhies, and Dustin Diamond.
