INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Saved by the reboot.

Word is the popular '80s and '90s television series "Saved by the Bell" is coming back with new episodes and some of the original actors, according to NBCUniversal.

NBCUniversal’s new streaming service "Peacock" will offer a new take on the beloved show with Mario Lopez (AC Slater) and Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano).

NBC released the following description of the upcoming series:

"When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality."

It's unclear if the other original actors will make an appearance including Mark-Paul Gosselaar.

"Saved by the Bell" celebrated its 30th anniversary in August 2019, and the cast reunited for dinner in celebration.

The streaming service will begin April 2020 and feature a stocked lineup of classic shows, including "Parks and Recreation," "The Office, "Will & Grace," "Cheers," "Frasier," "Saturday Night Live," "30 Rock" and "The King of Queens," according to Today.
