It seems that people just can’t get enough of Bayside High School as Saved By the Bell is coming back for a season 2 at Peacock.
Peacock has handed an order for a 10-episode second season to Saved By the Bell. It marks the second series the streaming service has renewed after a fourth season of A.P. Bio.
“I’m thrilled that Saved by the Bell has been renewed,” executive producer Tracey Wigfield said in a statement. “I’ve been blown away by all the love for the show and can’t wait to go back and make more episodes. Hopefully we stay on Peacock for many more seasons, and then in 30 years, somebody does a reboot of our reboot and invents the threeboot.”
The renewal isn’t a huge surprise as Saved By the Bell is the top rated series at the newly launched Peacock.
“Saved By the Bell brought a fresh and modern take to the beloved original series that resonated with viewers of all ages,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “Season 1 tackled topical, relevant issues with wit, heart, humor and just the right amount of nostalgia. And we look forward to bringing fans back to Bayside next season.”
“We are immensely proud of Tracey’s innovative reimagining of Saved By the Bell for a new generation. The stories told in Season 1 are both authentic and meaningful, and are elevated by outstanding performances from our cast,” said Erin Underhill, President, Universal Television. “We are grateful to our partners at Peacock and the fans for their continued support of the series. We can’t wait to be back next semester at Bayside High – a place where all are welcome!”
No premiere date has been announced for Saved By the Bell season 2 as of yet.
