Back to Bayside: How the 'Saved by the Bell' reboot blends old and new

"Saved by the Bell" is getting the reboot treatment. Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley), A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez) and the rest of the gang are - to varying degrees - getting back together.

NBC's Peacock streaming service is debuting the new show which is helmed by "30 Rock" vet Tracey Wigfield. Berkley and Lopez spoke to Yahoo Entertainment about making the show feel contemporary while also infusing it with nostalgia.

"I feel like a reason why maybe the show resonated because it was a simpler time and more innocent time," said Lopez.

"It was really important to maintain and embed in the DNA of this show all the things that mean so much to people," Berkley said. "But [also] really represent something fresh and progressive and new."
