Here's Everyone Confirmed For The 'Saved By The Bell' Sequel So Far

Here's Everyone Confirmed For The 'Saved By The Bell' Sequel So Far

It's a show that gave us a love of fluoro jackets, loud-printed shirts and sideways caps.

Now NBC is rebooting hit 90s sitcom Saved By The Bell - and while we brace ourselves for all kinds of nostalgia, we've rounded up everyone confirmed for the series so far.

According to Deadline, original cast members Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater), Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano) and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), are returning for the series' return, alongside two fresh new leads, Josie Totah and Dexter Darden.

Joining the original stars to fill out the cast are Haskiri Velazquez (The Birch), Mitchell Hoog (Harriet), Alycia Pascual-Pena (Chase) and Belmont Cameli (Empire).

The original show was a TV staple for most 90s kids, running for four series on NBC from 1989-92, with multiple re-runs.

Following the lives of young students Zack Morris, Kelly Kapowski, A.C. Slater and Screech as they climbed the ranks of Bayside High, the sitcom gave us broken hearts, epic fashion and cheerleader-and-jock stereotypes a-plenty.

So, who will the 2020 cast members play?

Hoog takes on the role of Mac Morris, "the handsome, charming, privileged son of Governor Zack Morris."

Pascual-Pena, meanwhile, plays Aisha, "Daisy's fun-loving, but ultra-competitive best friend. She grew up playing on boys' sports teams and causes a stir when she tries to play football at Bayside."


Velazquez plays Daisy, described as a "smart, ambitious sophomore who is excited at the prospect of attending Bayside High after her local school gets shut down."


Cameli is cast as Jamie Spano, "the captain of the Bayside football team and Jessie's sensitive man-child son."


Finally, Totah will play Lexi, "a beautiful, sharp-tongued cheerleader and the most popular girl at Bayside High who is both admired and feared by her fellow students."


We know what you're thinking - what about the plot?

Well, according to Deadline, the reboot - written and executive produced by Tracey Wigfield (30 Rock) - will focus on what happens when "California Gov Zack Morris (Gosselaar) gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools and proposes the affected students be sent 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."


Peter Engel and Franco Bario will also serve as executive producers.

The reimagined series is being produced by Universal Television for Peacock - but an air date is yet to be confirmed.

Bring on the return of Bayside High.
