“I read it in the trades just like everybody else this morning,” the Mixed-ish star told Variety at the ABC comedy's premiere last night. “Honestly, I was never approached. I woke up to the news this morning with a kind of ‘huh’ response.” Gosselaar's comment is notable since the Peacock streaming service's revival revolves around what happens when California Gov. Zack Morris "gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools and proposes the affected students be sent to the highest-performing schools in the state — including Bayside High." The Hollywood Reporter had reported Tuesday morning that NBC Universal was in talks with Gosselaar to return. But Gosselaar says he understands why NBC Universal didn't reach out. “I’m on ABC, so it doesn’t really fit into that considering Disney+, so I understand the business side of things,” he said. “But I had no idea it was that far along.” Asked if he'd be interested in reprising the Zack Morris role, Gosselaar said: “I’ve always been interested, of course."
