Mario Lopez says ‘Saved by the Bell’ reboot will include 'Easter eggs and throwbacks' to the original


Bayside High is almost back in session.

With the premiere of the “Saved by the Bell” reboot only weeks aways, Mario Lopez is dropping more hints of what the iconic show’s fans can expect.

The actor described his excitement of getting to revisit his former high school jock character A.C. Slater.

"It's a lot of fun to see what he's become," Lopez said during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” "They did a very cool blend of mixing the nostalgia with the very 2020 version of the kids these days too. It's shot beautiful, single camera."

The reboot will reunite Lopez alongside original cast members Elizabeth Berkley (Jesse Spano), Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris) and Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski).

He continued, "It was a lot of fun and just seeing everyone with the old gang, the OGs, and then with the new set of kids and kind of being in that teacher mentor role."

The ageless 47-year-old also hinted there will be multiple references to the show’s original run from 1989 - 1993.

"There's a lot of little Easter eggs and throwbacks," he teased. "There's a lot of dancing, some splits, some other stuff."

Last month, Peacock disclosed that Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) would be making a surprise appearance on the reboot after initial reports claimed the actress was not involved with the project.

"When the show picks up with Lisa, she is thriving with a successful career in fashion,” the streaming service said, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The reboot circles around Zack, now the California governor, and his decision to close underfunded schools and consolidate student populations in more greatly funded schools like Bayside.

“Saved by the Bell” will start streaming on Peacock on Nov. 25, with all 10 episodes.
