Saved By The Bell Is Getting A Sequel - Here's Who's Coming Back

Wednesday, 18 Sep, 2019

The return to the realm of Battlestar Galactica will be overseen by Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot), and while details are slim on the straight-to-order series, it is expected to be an updated vision of the story inspired by Syfy's 2004 run rather than the 1978 original series.

NBC announced Tuesday that a reboot of the beloved sitcom is coming to its new streaming service, Peacock, next year. THR reports that Peacock is in talks with other cast members like Mark-Paul Gosselaar to also return for the series, which seems likely considering the series' new logline.

If Gosselaar does sign-on, the show will follow Morris as a California Governor who's closed too many low-income schools, proposing they send the students to high-performing schools.

Unscripted shows will include a docuseries, "Who Wrote That", that pokes around the backstage world of Lorne Michaels' "Saturday Night Live"; a weekly late-night show hosted by "Late Night with Seth Meyers" writer Amber Ruffin; and a spinoff of Bravo's "Real Housewives" franchise.

Although making a sequel so many years after a show's initial success is risky, diehard Saved by the Bell fans don't have to worry.

It will also feature blockbusters and critically-acclaimed films from Universal Pictures, Focus Features, DreamWorks Animation, Illumination and other Hollywood studios.

NBCUniversal hasn't announced yet how much Peacock will cost, but it's believed Comcast subscribers will get it for free.

Just when you thought you were safe from being lured in by yet another streaming service, NBCUniversal is out here rebooting some of your favorite shows from decades ago.

While Peacock will officially arrive in the spring, the big push will come in the summer. BH90210 has already conquered the meta-angle, with the original stars playing heightened versions of themselves attempting to reboot their classic teen drama.
