Streamer Peacock has announced it is moving forward on a second season of its reboot of high school-set comedy “Saved by the Bell”, with an order for 10 new episodes. The show is a sequel to the 1990s teen comedy and features several original cast members but focuses on a new set of students at Bayside High.
“I’m thrilled that ‘Saved by the Bell’ has been renewed. I’ve been blown away by all the love for the show and can’t wait to go back and make more episodes,” said showrunner and executive producer Tracey Wigfield. “Hopefully we stay on Peacock for many more seasons, and then in 30 years, somebody does a reboot of our reboot and invents the threeboot.”
In the new “Saved by the Bell”, Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), now governor of California, gets into political trouble for closing too many underfunded high schools and proposes sending affected students to some of the more affluent schools — including his alma mater, Bayside.
The cast includes Josie Totah, Haskiri Velazquez, Josie Totah, Alycia Pascual-Peña, Mitchell Hoog, Belmont Cameli, Dexter Darden and John Michael Higgins. Original cast members Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Mario Lopez are also regulars.
