Calling on all our favorite binge-watchers! We've got some good news for you. The reboot of Saved by the Bell has officially been renewed for a second season, and the cast and crew can't wait to get started on it! Ten new episodes will be available for streaming on Peacock, so get ready to go back to Bayside High with the iconic cast.
Season one of the hilarious reboot showed the original characters going back to their old stomping grounds, but this time, they ruled the school, literally. Slater became the gym teacher, and Zack Morris is now California's Governor, while a new group of teens transferred from their old school to Bayside after Governor Morris closed too many schools in the district. The cast will pick up where they left off in the high school halls in the next season.
"Saved by the Bell brought a fresh and modern take to the beloved original series that resonated with viewers of all ages," said Lisa Katz, President of scripted content for NBCUniversal. "Season 1 tackled topical, relevant issues with wit, heart, humor, and just the right amount of nostalgia. And we look forward to bringing fans back to Bayside next season."
"I'm thrilled that Saved by the Bell has been renewed," said executive producer Tracey Wigfield. "I've been blown away by all the love for the show and can't wait to go back and make more episodes." Season one of the reboot first premiered back in November of 2020, and Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkely Lauren, Mark-Pail Gosselaar were ecstatic about it.
Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, who plays Jessie Spano, is also a producer of the reboot series and said that being back on the set of Saved by the Bell felt like "home," and she's thrilled to be back at Bayside High. "It's a very special thing we share," she said of the cast. "It's touching to have all these years of people that you care about and that you're rooting for."
When it came time to creating the reboot, "we wanted to introduce a new cast but also give fun winks and nods for the true fan," Elizabeth explained. Stay tuned for more episodes of the iconic and hilarious cast.
