Saved by the Bell will be getting a reboot thanks to NBCUniversal‘s new streaming service, Peacock. On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter shared that NBCUniversal will be teaming up with the original stars of the show Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley for the series. Sources report that the streamer is currently “in talks with other cast members, including Mark-Paul Gosselaar, to potentially return.”

The “straight-to-series” comedy will center around what happens when California Gov. Zack Morris (Gosselaar) creates conflict after closing low-income high schools. Bayside High gets involved as Morris proposes that students from the low-income school be sent to the highest-performing schools in the state. Lopez and Berkley reportedly will reprise their roles as A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano, but they will possibly be parents.

Saved by the Bell originally began airing back in 1989 and ran until 1993. Created by Sam Bobrick and developed by Peter Engel, the show followed Zack Morris and his group of friends at Bayside High School. Topics on the show included dating, drugs and more.

Spearheading the reboot is writer Tracey Wigfield from Universal Television. She will serve as showrunner and executive producer of the show alongside original series creators Peter Engel and Franco Bario, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Lopez and Berkley are also set to produce the new show.
