Mark-Paul Gosselaar Reacts to News of 'Saved By the Bell' Reboot: 'I Haven't Been Approached'

Mark-Paul Gosselaar found out just like everyone else about the upcoming Saved By the Bell reboot!

The 45-year-old actor, who played Zack Morris on the hit show, revealed that he has not been contacted about the newly announced revival on NBC’s streaming service, Peacock.

“I haven’t been approached, so I’m not involved at the moment,” he revealed to E! on the red carpet.

In the new Saved By the Bell, Governor Zack Morris gets in hot water for closing too many low-income schools. To combat the bad press, he orders California start bringing affected students to the highest performing schools, including Bayside High.

Mark-Paul isn’t sure about his role’s inclusion in the plot.

“I find that odd too ‘cause when I read that I thought, ‘Huh, I’m on mixed-ish,” he went on to say.

“I said, ‘You know this isn’t Mario Lopez that you just texted,’” he said he said to a friend who alerted him via text message of the show’s revival.

However, he did say he’d return if the timing is right.

'Saved By the Bell' Revival in the Works with Mario Lopez & Elizabeth Berkley Set to Star!

NBCUniversal’s new streaming service, Peacock, is reviving Saved By the Bell!

So far, Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley are signed on for the series to originate their roles as A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano. THR reports that they will play parents! The publication also notes that the producers are in talks with other original Saved By the Bell cast members, including Mark-Paul Gosselaar, to also return.

The show would center around California Governor Zack Morris (Gosselaar), who “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.”

Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Lark Voorhies, and Dustin Diamond also starred in the series, which ran from 1989 to 1993.

Deadline is reporting that in addition to the Saved By the Bell sequel, a Punky Brewster reboot has also been ordered by NBC’s streaming service!

Saved By The Max is L.A.’s Hottest New Pop-Up Restaurant

You have to check out Los Angeles’ hottest new pop-up, Saved By the Max, which is a nod to 1990s TV show Saved By the Bell.

The restaurant is modeled after the hit show, and is totally bringing us back to the days of Zack, Slater, Screech, Lisa, Kelly and Jessie.

Diners can make a reservation to eat at either The Max (the hip diner from the show) or in Mr. Belding’s office.

Inside the pop-up, which was created by Derek Berry, Zack Eastman, and Steve Harris, there’s a wall full of real props and memorabilia from the show like dolls, pillows and lunchboxes!

You can also check out the characters’ lockers, and the attention to detail is unbelievable! Zack Morris’ locker has a bulky 80s cell phone, while Kelly Kapowski’s locker has makeup and a cheerleading outfit and Jessie Spano’s locker has books and appropriately, caffeine pill bottles (from THAT famous episode!) In addition, Lisa Turtle’s locker has crutches from the “dance off” episode where she breaks her leg, while Screech’s locker has a pair of rainbow suspenders, and AC Slater’s locker has a football and hilariously, hairspray!

Even the bathrooms have been given such amazing detail. They’re gender specific and show pictures of Zack Morris for boys and Kelly Kapowski, Jessie Spano and Lisa Turtle for girls. The men’s bathroom even has funny graffiti poking fun of the school’s principal that reads, “Belding stinks!”

Be sure to make a reservation to get your chance to bring you back to your childhood!

If you don’t know, Saved By the Bell’s first episode aired in 1989 and starred Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski), Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater), Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano), Dustin Diamond (Samuel ‘Screech’ Powers), and Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle).
