(WTVO) — Following a trend in which everything old is new again, the 90’s TV series “Saved by the Bell” is coming back with new episodes and some of the original actors.

The Wrap reports that the series will air on NBCUniversal’s new streaming service “Peacock”.

The new series will star original actors Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley.

According to a press release, “When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.”

Zack Morris was played on the original show by Mark-Paul Gosselaar, but NBCUniversal did not say if he would be making a return appearance.

The NBCU streaming service will also be featuring reboots of “Punky Brewster” and “Battlestar Galactica”.

The “Peacock” service will be available in April 2020 with more than 15,000 hours of content.
