The trailer for the Saved By The Bell revival has been released, and it’s drumming up nostalgic feelings for fans of the original teen TV sitcom. The reboot, which is set to debut on NBC Universal’s new streaming service Peacock, released its first full trailer Monday.
… In the clip original stars Mario Lopez (who plays AC Slater on the show) and Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano) are seen reminiscing about their days at Bayside High. In a later snippet, Jessie, who is now a Bayside guidance counselor in the reboot, confiscates caffeine pills from a student — actually her old pal Zack Morris son’s — in the hallway as the Pointer Sisters’ 1982 classic I’m So Excited plays in the background. Jessie asks, “Are those caffeine pills? At first, they’re so exciting and then it gets even more exciting but after that, it gets so scary, and in the end, you ruin your girl group’s shot at a recording contract.” The iconic reference is a nod to the memorable Saved by the Bell Season 2 episode, Jessie’s Song, when her character battled a pill problem.
