On Aug. 20, 1989, several of Miss Bliss’ former students enrolled at Bayside High — and a teen franchise was born.
Now, 31 years after Saved by the Bell first launched on T-NBC, a new semester is set to begin on the NBCUniversal streaming service Peacock. The highly anticipated revival will pick up 27 years after Zack, Kelly, Slater, Jessie, Lisa and Screech graduated, and more than 20 years since the last extension of the popular comedy. (What, have you forgotten about The New Class?)
Since the SBTB sequel series was first announced last September, several legacy cast members have signed on to reprise their iconic roles. Other have not been approached. And while news continues to trickle in about the modern-day followup, so much remains unknown. For instance: Are Zack and Kelly still married? What ever happened to Jessie’s evil stepbrother Eric? And when was the last time anyone — and we mean anyone — spoke to Tori?
Rather than speculate about what we don’t know, TVLine has compiled the following guide that contains everything we do know about the revival, which we will continue to update as we learn more. In the meantime, scroll down to find out just how present our favorite alumni will be on an episode-to-episode basis, who among them are now parents to members of Bayside’s current student body, and why the show is poised to have a slightly different look and feel than you’re expecting. We’ve also rounded up previously released teaser trailers and quotes from the cast.
