Peacock has released a first look promo for their upcoming “Saved by the Bell” reboot.
Featuring returning stars Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley, reprising their roles as A.C. Slater and Jesse Spano, the revival had been filming right up until the coronavirus pandemic worsened at the end of March.
Per EW, “When the reboot premieres, California Governor Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) will find himself in trouble for closing too many low-income high schools and then propose that the affected students be sent to the highest-performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students will give the overprivileged Bayside kids a much-needed dose of reality.”
Newbies along for the ride include Josie Totah, Mitchell Hoog, Belmont Cameli, Dexter Darden, Haskiri Velazquez, and Alycia Pascual-Pena.
“Slater, who is now the high school’s gym teacher, has an interesting exchange with young Mac Morris (Hoog), son of Governor Morris and his longtime love Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen), and Jesse’s son, Jamie Spano (Cameli), in his office.”
Peacock recently announced that, despite production halting due to Covid-19, the show could still air this year.
