The much-awaited Saved By The Bell reboot is finally coming to our screens next month!
NBC Universal confirmed on September 29, that the anticipated reboot will air on November 25 on Peacock, NBC's new streaming service.
NBC teased the release date with a short clip of a peacock walking in the show's iconic high school corridors.
Watch the clip below.
Saved By The Bell was a popular American sitcom that aired from August 20, 1989, to May 22, 1993.
It follows a group of high school friends in Bayside High School as they navigate through the complexities of high school life, including dating and drugs.
The hilarious scenes resonated so much with the teen audiences of the '90s that the show managed to run for 4 seasons as part of a Saturday morning block on NBC.
The show ended with graduation but managed to get two spin-offs Saved by the Bell: The College Years and Saved by the Bell: The New Class, plus a pair of TV movies.
The sitcom celebrated its 30th-anniversary last year and treated fans with the reboot announcement.
The reboot will bring back the original cast members including Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley who will reprise their roles as A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano.
The two will now play the role of new parents, THR revealed last year.
We're also expecting to see other fan favorites Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), and Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen) for the upcoming reboot.
Former teen-heartthrob Mario Lopez revealed way back in May 2020 that the reboot will be edgier and more fun.
In an interview via PEOPLE, Lopez revealed: ‘It’s a little edgier and updated, but not naughty by all means. It’s a lot of fun and I’m having fun with it. The old gang’s gonna be back together, the new cast we have is great and very creative. It was like we picked up where we left off.’
Unfortunately, other fan favorites Screech (Dustin Diamond) and Lisa Turtle (Lark Voorhies) will not be able to join the reboot.
Voorhies expressed how she felt 'a bit slighted and hurt' for getting excluded in the reboot. Voorhies is reportedly suffering from Bipolar disorder, a diagnosis which she first denied in 2012.

Appearing to Dr. Oz, Voorhies said: "I have to admit I did feel a bit slighted and hurt when I was not invited to be part of the 'Saved by the Bell' reunion as well as other cast members events," she read. "Yet of course, I also realized that having this puzzling disorder may have played a major part in that factual decision."
Save the date! Saved By The Bell premieres November 25 on Peacock.
