Mario Lopez And Elizabeth Berkley Set For 'Saved By The Bell' TV Sequel

We're heading back to Bayside!

NBCUniversal's streaming service, Peacock, has added a straight-to-series sequel of 'Saved By The Bell' which will feature key cast members of the original Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley.

The series will be helmed by 'Great News' creator and '30 Rock' scribe Tracey Wigfield. The 'Hollywood Reporter' also claims the service is in talks with other original cast members including Mark-Paul Gosselaar to come back to the series, which makes sense considering the current plot details released.

Gosselaar's Zach Morris has gone from high school dreamboat to California Governer but is in a bit of trouble after closing too many low-income high schools. Gov Morris decides to send the students affected by the closures to other schools around the state including -- you guessed it -- Bayside High.

Lopez and Berkley will be returning to their iconic roles as AC Slater and Jessie Spano -- this time as parents.

The pair shared the news with fans on social media with Berkley referencing her storyline where she became addicted to caffeine pills, culminating in a harrowing performance of "I'm So Excited".

Back in April, Lopez and Berkley reunited with Gosselaar and castmate Tiffani Thiessen to celebrate three decades of 'Saved By The Bell'. The get-together sparked rumours of a reunion, and now fans are hoping other original cast members decide to join in the fun.
