Saved by the Bell celebrated its 30th-anniversary last month, and ran for four seasons on NBC between 1989 and 1992. The new Saved By the Bell comes from Emmy Award victor Tracey Wigfield and feature original cast members including Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez.
Although no official release date has been announced yet, the show is said to be apart of the lineup for a new streaming service called Peacock, owned by NBCUniversal. Esmail is a big fan of the franchise, and asked for a shot at BSG as part of his new, 4-year deal with NBCU.
Along with the Saved by the Bell reboot, Peacock will also be the new home to all episodes of The Office and Parks and Recreation, both of which now stream on Netflix. And while it's likely that we'll be introduced to an entirely new generation of Bayside students, Lopez and Berkley's characters will be navigating the highs and lows of parenthood. It was about a teen sociopath named Zack Morris (played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar) who drugged, prostituted, and sexually harassed his friends and who once put a baby in a gym bag (before losing said bag).
Aside from Lopez and Berkley, it's unclear if any other OG cast members will be featured in the sequel. After that came the short-lived spin-off series "Saved by the Bell: The College Years ' and seven-season long "Saved by the Bell: The New Class".
The service will launch in April 2020, and while pricing was not revealed it is expected to be free with ads for those with cable or live streaming subscription, with an additional fee to remove ads. Wigfield will executive produce the comedy alongside original series creator Peter Engel and Franco Bario, so it's definitely in good hands.
The return to the realm of Battlestar Galactica will be overseen by Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot), and while details are slim on the straight-to-order series, it is expected to be an updated vision of the story inspired by Syfy's 2004 run rather than the 1978 original series.
