A “Saved By The Bell” Reboot Is In The Works, Here’s Everything We Know
NBCUniversal's streaming service, Peacock, will launch in 2020.
For as long as I can remember, Netflix has always been the number one streaming service option in North America. Sure, we've had some beef with the app when it raised prices or canceled our favourite shows, but overall, Netflix has done a lot of good for its users. As of late though, Netflix has had some serious competition with other streaming services announcing awesome content. A Saved by the Bell reboot is happening, here's everything you need to know.
Earlier today, September 17, it was announced that the beloved 90s sitcom Saved by the Bell will be making a comeback. Usually, when get revived so far down the line, an entirely new cast is put together to tell the story, but it looks like we're going to be seeing a lot of the original faces!
Mario Lopez, who played A.C. Slater, and Elizabeth Berkley, who played Jessie Spano in the original series have both signed on for the reboot, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar is in talks to reprise his role as heartthrob Zack Morris.
If Gosselaar does sign-on, the show will follow Morris as a California Governor who's closed too many low-income schools, proposing they send the students to high-performing schools. Those schools then get a taste of reality as they deal with the new, very diverse student body. Lopez and Berkley will play the roles of student parents.
Although no official release date has been announced yet, the show is said to be apart of the lineup for a new streaming service called Peacock, owned by NBCUniversal. Peacock will be launching in the U.S. in 2020. A spokesperson from NBCUniversal told Narcity that "NBCUniversal will launch in the U.S. in April 2020, and will make it to other countries down the road".
Other shows that Peacock will be offering include The Office, 30 Rock, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and Saturday Night Live, just to name a few.
