The Peacock comedy from Tracey Wigfield that combined the old cast of the original 1990s Saved by the Bell with a new group of high school students to offer "a much-needed dose of reality" has been canceled after two seasons. Saved by the Bell, premiering to mostly good reviews during Thanksgiving Weekend in 2020 and reportedly performing well for Peacock, addressed important topics such as race, inclusion, class and education. It returned for its second season for Thanksgiving Weekend 2021. “We are so proud to have been the home of the next iteration of Saved by the Bell for both new and OG fans," Peacock said in a statement. "Saved by the Bell has been a cultural mainstay for more than 30 years and the new series, led by Tracey Wigfield’s superfan enthusiasm and signature witty humor, seamlessly continued the show’s legacy, all while allowing more audiences to feel seen. We’re grateful to Tracey, Franco Bario, our partners at UTV, the beloved cast, and the fans who have continued to champion one of the most iconic shows of all time." UPDATE: Mark-Paul Gosselaar is "disappointed" with the cancelation: "So many talented individuals in all departments creating something original from a reboot," he tweeted. "Respect and admiration to everyone involved and thanks to the viewers."
