Zack and Kelly Will Be in the Saved By the Bell Revival ... Somehow

It wouldn't be the same without them

Megan Vick

The Saved by the Bell revival won't go without Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen) after all. The famous duo will be part of the new series in "some capacity" according to new reports.

After telling reporters last fall that he hadn't been contacted about the revival at all, Gosselaar told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazettethat he and Thiessen will be showing up in the new series. "Everybody can sleep well at night," he said. "It looks like you will have us in some capacity."

Gosselaar also said of Tracy Wigfield's new take on the story, "I'm happy to be a part of it. What I've read so far, I'm good." According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gosselaar will appear in three episodes and has also been added as an executive producer to the series. Thiessen's role in the new series is still being ironed out.

Everything We Know About the Saved by the Bell Revival

The logline of the series, which will premiere on NBC's upcoming streaming service Peacock, says that Zack has become governor of California and lands in hot water closing too many low-income schools. When he suggests sending the affected students to the highest-performing schools in the state -- including his alma mater Bayside High -- the new students "gives the over-privileged Bayside kids a much-needed and hilarious dose of reality."

Original cast members Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez have already signed on to the series. Championsstar Josie Totah will lead the student cast as a cheerleader that is beloved and feared by her fellow students.

Saved By the Bell is available to stream on Hulu.
