Saved By The Bell Reboot To Feature Zack And Kelly 'In Some Capacity'

You remember Saved By The Bell, right? Big hair, colourful clothes, corny lines.

Well, the American high school sitcom is getting rebooted more than 30 years on from when it first aired and it looks like Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack) and Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly) will feature in it.

The sweethearts were central to everything at Bayside High School and Gosselaar has indicated that he and Thiessen will be involved in the reboot too.


According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the 45-year-old said: "Everybody can sleep well at night. I think Tiffani has been engaged with. It looks like you will have us in some capacity."

Of course, Zack will no longer be a student - that would be weird. In the new show, the blond-haired boy has grown up to be a Californian governor.

When the revamp was announced, a synopsis for the show read: "When California governor Zack Morris (Time out Governor Zack Morris?! Time in!) gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state - including Bayside High.

"The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality."


Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley, who played A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano in the original show, will also be returning, but this time around they will be parents of students who attend Bayside High.

There's no word as of yet though with regard to Lark Voorhees, who played Lisa Turtle, and Dustin Diamond, who played Screech.

The show is set to return as part of NBC's new streaming service, Peacock, which launches in April.


Bonnie Hammer, who will be in charge of the service, said: "The name Peacock pays homage to the quality content that audiences have come to expect from NBCUniversal.

"Peacock will be the go-to place for both the timely and timeless - from can't-miss Olympic moments and the 2020 election to classic fan favourites like The Office."
