Oh, sweet nostalgia! What’s old is new again in the latest trailer for Peacock’s Saved by the Bell continuation and it offers up our first look at Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tiffani Thiessen reprising their roles of Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski, respectively.
We already saw a look at the return of Mario Lopez as A.C. Slater and Elizabeth Berkley Lauren as Jessie Spano from previous trailers but this latest preview gets the old gang back together with the addition of Gosselaar and Thiessen. The trailer is basically speaking to the fans of the original Saturday morning series with several callbacks from the original show as well as what looks like a “Zack Attack” reunion in the style of Zack’s dream about his band.
Peacock’s Saved by the Bell isn’t just about catching up with old friends as a new generation of students begins to take center stage. On the new show, Governor Zack Morris (Gosselaar) closes a number of underfunded high schools which leaves its students to be absorbed by those in more affluent areas, namely Bayside High School. Morris’ son Mac (Mitchell Hoog) and Jessie’s son Jamie (Belmont Cameli) attend Bayside, as does the rich and popular Lexi (Josie Totah). Slater (Lopez) is now working there as a gym teacher and he’s pumped for the new kids (Dexter Darden’s Devante, Alycia Pascual-Pena’s Aisha, and Haskiri Velazquez’s Daisy) to arrive so he can share his story of entering the halls of Bayside as a new kid and finally finding a place he truly belonged.
