Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley, who played A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano on the series, were the first to announce the revival. It will be “a single-camera comedy that explores what happens when Zack, who is now the governor of California, gets into hot water 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.” Lopez and Berkley will be reprising their roles as well as serving as producers in the upcoming series. There is no word yet on whether Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle or Dustin Diamond, who played Samuel “Screech” Powers and was recently serving time in a Wisconsin prison, will be returning.
