According to The Hollywood Reporter, the straight-to-series comedy will debut on NBCUnviersal's new streaming service, Peacock.

It will see Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley reprise their roles as A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano. Other stars of the iconic sitcom, like Mark-Paul Gosselaar, are said to be "in talks" about a possible return.

The series would explore what happens when California Gov. Zack Morris gets in trouble after closing too many low-income schools.

He ends up suggesting that the students who are affected be sent to the highest performing schools in California - which, in this case, would include Bayside High.

Lark Voorhies as Lisa Turtle, Ed Alonzo as Max, Tiffani Thiessen as Kelly Kapowski, Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Zack Morris, Dennis Haskins as Mr. Richard Belding, Elizabeth Berkley as Jessie Myrtle Spano, Dustin Diamond as Screech Powers, Mario Lopez as A.C. Slater.

The new students give the privileged students of Bayside High a "much-needed and hilarious" reality check.
