Popular 90s teen sitcom Saved By The Bell is the latest classic TV show to receive a 2020 reboot – and it’s out now on NBC streaming service Peacock. Fans of the original aren’t likely to be disappointed, with old favorites Zack, Slater, Kelly, and Jessie all back as adults, joining a host of new cast members that make up the Bayside High of the 21st century. Follow our guide as we explain how to watch the Saved By The Bell reboot online and stream Peacock’s 2020 version of the show from anywhere in the world today.
Those new cast members include John Michael Higgins as Bayside’s new boss-in-chief, Principal Toddman, while Haskiri Velazquez, Mitchell Hoog, Josie Totah, Alycia Pascual-Pena, Belmont Cameli and Dexter Darden star as the new crop of students.
Watch Saved by the Bell 2020 reboot
All episodes of the 2020 Saved by the Bell reboot are available now on Peacock in the US. Full global TV and streaming details are below. For anybody abroad and away from their usual broadcaster, you can always grab an A-grade VPN deal and stream just like you would at home.
From the old school, Mario Lopez reprises his role as lovable meathead AC Slater, now Bayside’s (what else) gym teacher, while Elizabeth Berkley’s Jessie Spano is now a parent, mother of the captain of Bayside’s football team, and the school counsellor.
They’re understood to have the largest roles of the original gang, but Tiffani Thiessen is also back as Kelly Kapowski and it just wouldn’t be Saved by the Bell without Zack – Mark Paul Gosselaar’s character coming back as the Governor of California, no less! Still married to Kelly (obvs!), their son Mac Morris (Hoog), is now a student at the school in the reboot.
Fans of the original can expect plenty of knowing references and in-jokes typical of the show’s humor, but the Saved the Bell reboot also promises to tackle plenty of serious issues. Its central storyline, for instance, is the integration of students from a recently closed low-income high school into the traditionally preppie Bayside fold.

How to watch Saved by the Bell reboot (2020) online in Canada today
NBC has a deal with Corrus Entertainment in Canada that allows the network’s channels to broadcast Peacock Originals in the Great White North after they’ve aired in the US.
