Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley Spotted in Character for 'Saved by the Bell' Reboot


After three decades, A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano are back in action and they haven’t missed a beat.

Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley were spotted reprising their beloved early '90s characters on the set of the upcoming “Saved by the Bell” revival on Monday.

The Daily Mail obtained some of the first photos of the actors getting into character again.

Lopez was seen wearing a tank top and jeans, while Berkley donned professional business attire.

The two appear to be standing on a football field, so it’s possible that Lopez’s athletic Slater is now a coach.

Lopez and Berkley’s characters dated in the beloved sitcom, which ran from 1989 to 1993, but it’s unclear if they are still romantically involved in the revival or if Slater is the father of Jessie’s son, Jamie Spano, played by “Empire’s” Belmont Cameli.

Jamie is described as “the captain of the Bayside football team and Jessie’s sensitive man-child son.”

The duo aren’t the only two to reprise their iconic characters.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar is returning as Zack Morris, who went from popular, preppy jock to the governor of California.

The series, debuting on NBC’s streaming service Peacock, will center around the consequences of Morris’ decision to close too many low-income schools.

According to the official logline: “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.”

Mitchell Hoog has been cast as Mac Morris, Zack’s “handsome, charming, and privileged son."

It’s also unclear if Zack’s high-school sweetheart, Kelly Kapowksi (Tiffani Thiesen) is Mac’s mom, but she is set to reprise her role in “some capacity,” according to TV Line.

Peacock is set to launch this summer.
