You guys, I have been lamenting since the mid-July launch of NBC’s streaming service, Peacock. Because we got the first trailer for the Saved By The Bell reboot so many months ago, I thought the show was going to be premiering with the service. This hadn’t been confirmed, but it seemed to line up and be feasible. I know everything slowed down this Spring and Summer due to the pandemic, but I had high hopes.
We still don’t have a date for the updated series, but we do have a new teaser for you to check out today, and it’s definitely going to hold me over for a little longer! Check it out:
The first thing that got me pumped in the trailer was seeing the return of Ed Alonzo as Max, the magician/waiter from the restaurant hangout, The Max. He looks just the same! Then to hear Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley) intervening when she sees a student about to take caffeine pills, saying it’s exciting, then more exciting, then scary, is just the freaking best! Everyone loves to poke fun at that scene, and good ol’ Jessica Spano herself isn’t above the mockery.
I can’t wait for this show to come out. The original series was my absolute favorite growing up, and I am hanging on to every happy thing I can these days.
Are you looking forward to the new Saved By The Bell?
