“Saved By The Bell” is getting the reboot treatment with Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley attached to star.

The show logline reads, “When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.”

Lopez (who played A.C. Slater) and Berkley (Jessie Spano) are both coming back to the reboot. The two played love interests on the series. Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris) is reportedly still unconfirmed for the show. The other cast included Dustin Diamond (Screech), Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) and Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski).

The outlet reports deals for other cast members are still being negotiated.

“Saved By The Bell” was on the air from 1989 until 1992. It focused on the students of Bayside High School in Palisades, California.

NBC’s streaming service, Peacock, is also rebooting the 80’s sitcom “Punky Brewster”. Actress Soleil Moon Frye is coming back as an adult version of her character.

Peacock is set to launch in April 2020 and will compete with Netflix, Apple+ and Disney+.
