Peacock Renews Saved By the Bell for Second Season

Peacock has renewed "Saved By the Bell" for a 10-episode second season. 

Writer and executive producer Tracey Wigfield commented on the news, saying, "I'm thrilled that Saved By the Bell has been renewed. I've been blown away by all the love for the show and can't wait to go back and make more episodes. Hopefully, we stay on Peacock for many more seasons, and then in 30 years, somebody does a reboot of our reboot and invents the threeboot."

The series is a reboot of the classic NBC series of the same name, which originally aired from 1989-1993. It stars original cast members Elizabeth Berkley Lauren (Jessie Spano) and Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater), along with John Michael Higgins (Principal Toddman), Belmont Cameli, Dexter Darden, Mitchell Hoog, Alycia Pascual-Peña, Josie Totah, and Haskiri Velazquez.

Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television, and Streaming, said, "Saved By the Bell brought a fresh and modern take to the beloved original series that resonated with viewers of all ages. Season 1 tackled topical, relevant issues with wit, heart, humor and just the right amount of nostalgia. And we look forward to bringing fans back to Bayside next season."

"We are immensely proud of Tracey's innovative reimagining of Saved By the Bell for a new generation. The stories told in Season 1 are both authentic and meaningful and are elevated by outstanding performances from our cast. We are grateful to our partners at Peacock and the fans for their continued support of the series. We can't wait to be back next semester at Bayside High - a place where all are welcome!", said Erin Underhill, President, Universal Television.
