NBCUniversal is set to roll out a pair of series for the nostalgia set. A new Saved By The Bell series will join previously announced Punky Brewster sequel featuring the original series’ star, Soleil Moon Frye. The shows will stream on NBC’s newly named service, Peacock, with Saved By The Bell stars Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley, and potentially Mark-Paul Gosselaar, set to return for the sequel series.
More details via The Hollywood Reporter:
The new straight-to-series comedy explores what happens when California Gov. Zack Morris (Gosselaar’s role) gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools and proposes the affected students be sent 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.
