Get ready to go back to Bayside! NBCUniversal recently announced the addition of a Saved By the Bell reboot to its new streaming service Peacock—and it’s not your only childhood fave to get an update.
Peacock, which will launch in April of 2020 with 15,000 plus hours of old faves and brand-new originals, has a slew of content in the works. Along with sci-fi dramas such as Battlestar Galactica reboot and unscripted programs from superstars such as Jimmy Fallon and Lorne Michaels, NBCUniversal’s service will also include new Saved By the Bell and Punky Brewster shows.
As of now, Saved By the Bell stars Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez are already attached to the project. Reportedly, the show’s premise will follow what happens when fictional California governor Zack Morris closes too many schools and has to move new students to his alma mater Bayside High.
Even though the reboot is slated to focus on Morris, there’s still no word on whether Mark-Paul Gosselaar will reprise the role.
Not only is NBCUniversal bringing the Bayside gang back, but the new streaming service will also feature an original reboot starring Soleil Moon Frye as the adult version of her iconic Punky Brewster character.
