Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley reacted Saved By Bell roles in a playful teaser for a reimagined version of the late Eighties / early Seven sitcom.
The show, which follows a new harvest of students at Bayside High, features Berkley as Jessie Spano, mother of football team captain Jamie (Belmont Cameli); Lopez rode as AC Slater, now a school gym teacher.
“Do you remember all the dances we had at this gym? Do you want to come back?” Jesse asked Slater in the clip. “Sure,” he replied, leading to a breeze featuring the teen’s new cast. The trailer sparked a callback to a frequently parodied episode from the original show, while Jesse began taking some caffeine pills from a student.
“At first they were entertaining. And then it was even more exciting,”; he warned.
Executive producer Tracey Wigfield described her vision for the show on the Television Critics Association on Monday.
“It’s not even a reboot; it’s reimagining,” he said, as USA Today report. While the original show was a Saturday morning show for kids, it was a single-camera, kind of edgier comedy … if you haven’t seen the (original), it’s a funny show about high school in 2020. “
The series will be aired on NBC’s streaming service Peacock. No date of the first has been announced, and the final run of the episodes has reportedly not been watched by the film due to a pandemic-related pause.
