He’s baaaccckkk. And yes, we’re talking about Zack Morris on Saved by the Bell.
Actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar recently confirmed that he’s reprising his role on the all-new revival, and he’s not the only original cast member who’s returning to Bayside High. From the O.G. characters to the new stars, keep reading for everything we know about the Saved by the Bell reboot.
1. How do I watch the 'Saved by the Bell' Reboot?
While there’s no premiere date (at least not yet), the Saved by the Bell revival is expected to launch later this year. The show will be exclusively broadcast on NBCUniversal’s forthcoming streaming service, Peacock, which is scheduled to debut in April.
2. Who's in it?
Multiple original cast members—including Gosselaar (Zack Morris), Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater) and Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano)—will reprise their roles in the upcoming reboot.
“Everybody can sleep well at night,” Gosselaar joked shortly after the announcement, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The 45-year-old actor also said that Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski) will most likely be involved “in some capacity.”
3. What about newcomers?
We recently learned that Josie Totah (Champions) will not only serve as an executive producer, but she’ll also play the lead role of Lexi. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the character is described as “a beautiful, sharp-tongued cheerleader and the most popular girl at Bayside High, who is both admired and feared by her fellow students.”
John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect) is also joining the cast as Bayside High’s new principal, Principal Toddman, so prepare for a new batch of pranks. Hey, hey, hey. What is going on here?
4. What's it about?
The story line will center around grown-up Zack Morris, who is in over his head. You see, he now works in real estate and closed too many low-income high schools, leaving him with no other option than to the send the students to better schools in the area, like Bayside High.
5. Who's writing it?
Tracey Wigfield (Great News) will not only write and executive produce the revival, but she’ll also serve as showrunner. Lopez and Berkley will also produce alongside Franco Bario (Sorry for Your Loss) and original series creator Peter Engel.
