‘Saved by the Bell’ revival with Mario Lopez as a gym teacher gets premiere date

The original high-school sitcom — which launched Mario Lopez, 46, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar, 46 — aired on NBC from 1989 to 1993, and saw a sequel series called “Saved by the Bell: The College Years,” which aired from 1993 to 1994.

More than three decades later, there will be some changes to the big return to Bayside High. For one, the original show’s studio audience and canned laughter will be nixed. Instead, it will be a single-camera comedy in a similar vein to “The Office.” For another, the teens from the original are obviously all grown up — so some are now parents, and others are now pillars of their community.

The plot of the revival will follow Zack Morris (Gosselaar), now the governor of California, who finds himself in a political controversy after he closes too many of the state’s low-income schools. As an attempt to recover, he proposes sending the students who are impacted to well-funded schools such as Bayside.

This story includes new characters such as Zack’s son Mac (Mitchell Hoog, “Roswell, New Mexico”) and Jessie’s son Jamie (Belmont Cameli, “Empire”). A.C. Slater (Lopez) returns and is now a gym teacher at the school.
