Saved By The Bell was a beloved sitcom television show that debuted in 1989 and existed until 1993. The audience loved its characters, humor, and storyline throughout the show’s running and many were incredibly sad to see it end. Since then, there have been some spin-offs and continuations of the show that have been made.
But a new version of the show has been planned to begin this year on Peacock that has fans buzzing. What exactly is happening with the new version and what can you expect?
Well, here’s everything you need to know about the new Saved By The Bell.
Creator Sam Bobrick decided to get this idea in the works, where a continuing plot of the original Saved By The Bell comes into play. The show was taken on by television network Peacock, and the first episode aired in late November.
Many fans have already spoken up with admiration for the choices made in casting as well as the story and are excited for the rest to come, so it’s certainly gaining some popularity.
Cast wise, a handful of the original members are being brought in to bring it full circle. Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Governor Zack Morris) has been contracted for a few episodes as well as getting producer credit.
Tiffani Thiessen is also planned to be back as her role of Kelly alongside Mark. Mario Lopez’s role as A.C. Slater continues in this adaptation but has developed to age into a new position that fits his previous character (no spoilers). Elizabeth Berkley is back to play her role as Jessie Spano who has a son in the show now as well, which is an interesting way to develop her character. Plenty of other fan-favorites and original members have been brought into this new version of Saved By The Bell.
Not only have some of the old loved cast come back into the picture for this production, but some big names in the industry have been cast as well. This includes Dexter Darden from the Maze Runner series, Haskiri Velazquez from projects like Blue Bloods and The 40-Year Old Virgin has a character and others. Some amazing progress was also made in the fact that the show cast a transgender girl named Josie Totah for a female role, which is something that the actress spoke up very proudly about being able to do. She spoke about how little trans representation is present in the industry and how happy she is to be able to be that for transgender youth through her role as well as other roles.
You can find places to watch this series on multiple platforms. It’s available for watching on Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, Vudu, Google Play Movies, and more. Wherever you prefer to stream the show off of cable you most likely will be able to find it.
