Back in the day when life was simple, we had no idea what a “Covid” was, and cell phones looked like shoeboxes only the suuuuper rich people owned—you know, the ’90s—Saved By the Bell was LIFE.
I used to go over to a friend’s house after school where we’d pull up rolling upholstered chairs to the kitchen table, turn on the fancy 24″ boxy TV in the corner, and catch up with Zack, Kelly, Slater, Jessie, Lisa, Screech and the gang at Bayside High for a glorious half an hour of sitcom magic. We watched them go to prom, we watched Zack get in endless trouble with Mr. Belding, we watched them eat hundreds of cheeseburgers at The Max, we watched Jessie have that infamous breakdown—we watched it all.
Now a brand new generation of kids is in for a trip down memory lane with their ’90s kids-turned-parents because the trailer for the Saved By the Bell “reimagining” on NBC’s streaming app Peacock is officially here.
Peacock released the full-length trailer today, and it’s going to transport you right back to that nostalgia of the ’90s:
The official series description reads:
When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many underfunded high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the most well-funded schools in the state – including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the privileged Bayside kids (who never have a problem that can’t be solved in twenty-two minutes) a much-needed dose of reality.
And so many of our old friends are back, this time as the grown-ups guiding a new set of Bayside High students. There’s Mario Lopez as A.C. Slater, now teaching gym at Bayside High; Elizabeth Berkley reprising her role as a grown-up Jessie Spano; Mark-Paul Gosselaar as (Governor of California!) Zack Morris . . . and did we spy a glimpse of Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly Kapowski?
The possibilities down this ’90s television rabbit hole are endless.
The series is set to drop Wednesday, November 25th—just in time for Thanksgiving binge-watching. Saved By the Bell will be streaming only on the Peacock app.
