Mario Lopez shares first look at Saved by the Bell reboot
It’s officially time to go back to the Max.
On Friday, Mario Lopez took to Instagram to give fans the first look at the upcoming Saved by the Bell reboot. The nostalgic video featured Lopez and his costar Elizabeth Berkley on the set of the iconic diner as they prepared to film a promo for NBC’s streaming service Peacock.
On Friday, it was announced that Lopez and Berkley’s former costar Mark-Paul Gosselaar would be joining them in the Saved by the Bell revival as his original character Zack Morris. He will reportedly appear in three episodes and be a producer on the new show. Plus Tiffani Thiessen, who played Zack’s girlfriend and later wife Kelly Kapowski, is also in talks to reprise her role on the reboot. Lopez and Berkley will be reprising their roles A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano.
The reboot will explore the fallout when Zack, now governor of California, gets into trouble 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. Josie Totah will star in the lead role of Lexi, a popular and sharp-tongued cheerleader.
Peacock is set to launch in April 2020. A premiere date for the Saved by the Bell reboot has yet to be announced.
