Saved By The Bell Reboot Teaser Trailer (HD) Peacock TV series

The cool kids are headed back to Bayside High for a Saved by the Bell sequel series, and now we have our first look at the upcoming Peacock show.

The new Saved by the Bell series planned for NBCUniversal’s streaming service, Peacock, will reunite original series stars Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley for a show that explores the former high school classmates lives’ after they left Bayside, and bring them back to their beloved alma mater. Both Lopez and Berkley are confirmed to reprise their roles, while Mark-Paul Gosselaar is also expected to return for the show.

Peacock released the first trailer for the new Saved By the Bell series on April 15.

The series’ premise has Zack Morris (Gosselaar) elected the governor of California, only to get in trouble for closing many of the state’s low-income schools. His decision to send the students from those schools to Bayside and other wealthy school districts sets the stage for a clash between the privileged Bayside kids and the new arrivals to their school, and Morris’ former classmates A.C. Slater (Lopez) and Jessie Spano (Berkley) soon find themselves dealing with the fallout (for reasons yet to be revealed).

The new Saved by the Bell series comes from Emmy-winning 30 Rock writer Tracey Wigfield, who previously created, wrote, and appeared in the series Great News, and will serve as the showrunner on the sequel series. Wigfield will also executive produce the series alongside original Saved by the Bell creator Peter Engel and Great News executive producer Franco Bario. Lopez and Berkley will also serve as producers.

Originally airing on NBC from 1989 to 1993, Saved by the Bell chronicled the adventures of a group of high-school students navigating life, love, and high school drama at their affluent California school. Along with Lopez, Berkley, and Gosselaar, the series also starred Dustin Diamond, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, and Lark Voorhies. The show was a major hit for NBC, and spawned a pair of spinoff series, Saved by the Bell: The College Years and Saved by the Bell: The New Class, which followed the later years of some of the core characters and a group of new students at Bayside High, respectively.

The Peacock streaming service launched April 15 for Comcast and Xfinity subscribers, with a public launch scheduled for July 15. There’s no official word on when the first season of the new Saved By the Bell series will arrive on Peacock.

The Wolf of Wall Street is popular on Netflix right now. Here’s why you should watch it (again)
Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street.

There are so many weird, strange, and even obscure films that find their way to the top of the most popular movies on Netflix that it's refreshing to see a terrific film like The Wolf of Wall Street march up the charts. While we could give you several reasons why this is the single best movie to watch in September, we're going to narrow it down to three reasons to watch The Wolf of Wall Street on Netflix.

This film is also a timely choice because director Martin Scorsese and his frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio are reteaming soon for The Killers of the Flower Moon later this year. Scorsese and DiCaprio have made some great films together over the past two decades, but we believe that The Wolf of Wall Street is a superior choice because it breaks the mold from Scorsese's previous movies while also giving DiCaprio a chance to play a very different kind of leading man. This flick also happens to have the star-marking turn for the actress who headlined the highest-grossing movie of 2023: Margot Robbie. So sit back and relax as we share our three reasons to watch The Wolf of Wall Street on Netflix this month.

The best mysteries on Netflix right now
Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner as Jane and Cory in the forest in the film Wind River.

It's no mystery why so many of the best mysteries are on Netflix. Mystery has turned out to be one of the most popular genres among Netflix subscribers who are looking for a few extra thrills from their movies. There is also an allure to playing armchair detective while attempting to solve the unfolding mysteries before the protagonists get a chance to figure it out.

Our latest update for this list includes Wind River and Prisoners, both of which feature Marvel actors spreading their wings into more dramatic and intense territory. Considering the way they shared the screen in the Avengers movies, it's kind of bizarre to see Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner with such a different dynamic in Wind River. Meanwhile, Prisoners has one of the darkest turns by X-Men star Hugh Jackman in his performance as an aggrieved father who will do anything to find his missing daughter.
