Saved By The Bell reboot brought back original cast
Saved By The Bell's return to television was exciting news for fans of the popular sitcom, which originally began airing in 1989. Several cast members from the show made appearances in the reboot, even coming together in a season 2 episode to honour the late Dustin Diamond, who played "Screech" in the original series.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played the role of "Zack Morris" in Saved By The Bell, expressed his dismay about the series' cancellation on social media. "So disappointed by this news," Gosselaar tweeted. "So many talented individuals in all departments creating something original from a reboot." According to Deadline, the cast were informed they would not be returning for season 3 a day prior to the news being shared.
Saved By The Bell's reboot brought nostalgia to audiences as they returned to the halls of Bayside High, while also adding plenty of new faces to fill out the cast. A spokeswoman for Peacock has made a statement about the show coming to an end, calling it "a cultural mainstay for more than 30 years." She also mentioned how the reboot "seamlessly continued the show’s legacy, all while allowing more audiences to feel seen."
