Mario Lopez gave fans a sneak peek at the upcoming “Saved By The Bell” reboot.

A Quick Preview
On the video, Mario said, “All right we just shot our first scene… well not really our first scene, it was like a promo for Saved by the Bell.”
Berkley then chimed in, “But I feel like only the people who have the history we have could drop right on in like that.”
Ed Alonzo, who played the role of Max, the owner of The Max, was also seen in the video. “Look, there’s old-school Max,” Lopez said as he focused the camera on Alonzo.
“Talk about like being in a time machine,” Berkley added.

What To Expect From The New “Saved By The Bell”
In the reboot, Zack is now the governor of California. However, he’ll be in hot water after closing too many low-income high schools. His solution is to send the affected students to go to the highest performing schools in the state such as the Bayside High.
NBC announced its plans to revisit Bayside High back in September. “Saved by the Bell” is a hit TV show in the 1990s that follows central characters like Zack Morris, Kelly Kapowski, A.C. Slater, and Screech from their high school and into their adult life.
