On April 15, NBCUniversal released the teaser for the highly anticipated Saved By the Bell reboot for its new streaming service, Peacock. The series, which sees Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley returning to their Bayside roots as AC Slater and Jessie Spano, follows a new group of Bayside High students that also involve the children of Jessie as well as Zack and Kelly.

The teaser includes AC as a gym teacher and retelling a story to two students, Zack’s son and Jessie’s son, of how he and his best friend fought over a girl. “That was actually your dad, over your mom!” AC then says he went after another girl and hooked up with her. “Oh, wait. That was your mom!” A student does Zack’s infamous “Time out” phrase, and The Max, still in its wonderful ’90s theme, is also seen.

In the reboot, California Governor Zack Morris will once again be finding himself in trouble, only this time for closing too many low-income schools. The proposal is that the affected students will be sent to the highest-performing schools, including Bayside High. Mark-Paul Gosselaar is set to reprise his role as the mischievous preppy, while TV wife Tiffany Thiessen was still recently negotiating coming back as Kelly Kapowski.

Saved By the Bell ran on NBC from 1989-1993 and was followed by two spin-offs. Saved By the Bell: The College Years ran for a single season, while Saved By the Bell: The New Class had seven seasons. Both the OG and The College Years are currently available to stream on Hulu. The reboot will premiere on Peacock sometime after the streaming service launches in July.
