Late last year a sequel to the cult hit TV Show ‘Saved By The Bell’ was announced and now an official first glimpse into the revival has been released.
The sequel makes its comeback almost 30 years after the original show aired back in the late ’80s. The reboot’s trailer sees Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley reprise their roles as A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano.
‘Saved By The Bell’ is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from August 20, 1989, to May 22, 1993. The popular show followed a group of high school friends and their principal, primarily focusing on lighthearted comedic situations. The show occasionally touched on important social issues, such as drug use, homelessness, death, women’s rights, and even environmental issues.
The direct sequel to both television shows, ‘Saved by the Bell’ and ‘Saved by the Bell: The College Years’ and follows some of the same characters. Slater is now a gym teacher at the fictional Bayside High School, where the original show was set and Jessie is now a mum of one of the students.
Although he doesn’t appear in the teaser trailer below, another original cast member set to return is Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played Zack Morris. Despite it being 30 years on, the show appears to retain some of its 80s aesthetic. ‘Saved By The Bell’ 2020 will be directed by Great News creator Tracey Wigfield, and co-produced and written by original series creators Peter Engel and Franco Bario.
The show is set to air on streaming service Peacock, however, no release date has been announced as of yet. Watch the full trailer below and read more on the latest entertainment news right.
