Fans of 1990s sitcoms got a little taste of nostalgia with teaser trailers for Peacock’s reboots of Punky Brewster and Saved by the Bell this week. The streaming service posted the trailers on Thursday, take a look!
Saved by the Bell stars Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley reprise their roles as A.C. Slater and Jesse Spano in the first teaser trailer for the beloved sitcom’s reboot. California Governor Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) will find himself in trouble for closing too many low-income high schools and then propose that the affected students be sent to the highest-performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students will give the overprivileged Bayside kids a much-needed dose of reality.
Punky Brewster is a ten-episode reboot of the 1984 NBC sitcom. Produced by UCP and Universal Television, original series star Soleil Moon Frye set to reprise her role as the titular character, alongside Cherie Johnson, reprising her role as Punky’s best friend, and new stars Quinn Copeland (Waitress the Musical), Lauren Donzis (No Good Nick), Oliver De Los Santos (Occupation: Rainfall), and Noah Cottrell (Skyscraper). Freddie Prinze Jr. (I Know What You Did Last Summer) guest stars in the pilot as Punky’s ex-husband.
As of now, Peacock is set to launch July 15, 2020. Both series are expected to be available sometime this year with no word yet on whether production shutdowns have affected the reboots’ launch dates.
