Details of the new Peacock exclusive series are scarce but we do know a few details about the original cast. A.C Slater and Jessie Spano are meant to return to the series. The two were spotted for the first time while on the set of the new series. The two look great, it's hard to believe it's been 31 years since the series first aired and now it's making its return. Mark-Paul Gosselaar is also set to make the return and Tiffani Thiessen currently in talks to see what her role would be in the series.

What to Expect

In the reboot, Zack Morris has become the governor of California. Mark-Paul Gosselaar will be back for at least three episodes. Governer Zack is under fire for closing down too many low-income schools, so he decides to transfer students from the affected schools to higher-performing ones in the richer neighborhoods. The reboot will revolve around a group of kids transferred to Pacific Palisades’ wealthy Bayside High, giving the main characters new territory to weave their way through. The new Saved by the Bell series already has its lead actor who will be played by Josie Totah, 18.

THR describes Lexi(the new main character) as “a beautiful, sharp-tongued cheerleader and the most popular girl at Bayside High who is both admired and feared by her fellow students.”

Since the show aired back in the '90s, the show continued to grow in popularity after that. It's become an iconic sitcom like many hits from back in the '90s. After the series, the cast went their separate ways continuing their careers in the industry. As of late, none of the original cast has been into much of the spotlight except for Mario Lopez who has taken more of a hosting role after his time on Saved by the Bell and has become one of the most beloved parts of the show.
