The original Saved by the Bell series ran for four seasons from 1989 to 1992. There was also a spinoff titled Saved by the Bell: College Years, which lasted for one season from 1993 to 1994.

The show starred Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Zack Morris; Mario Lopez as A.C. Slater; Elizabeth Berkley as Jessie Spano; Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly Kapowski; Dustin Diamond as Screech Powers; and Lark Voorhies as Lisa Turtle.

The reboot will explore conflict stemming from when Zack, who is now governor of California, gets into trouble for closing too many low-income high schools and proposes the affected students be sent to the highest-performing schools in the state — one of which is Bayside High.
