“Saved by the Bell” was the first teaser Peacock dropped, and it showed new looks at some of the original Bayside cast members all grown up. Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley reprise their roles as A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano. Mac Morris (Mitchell Hoog), the son of Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen), and Jamie Spano (Belmont Cameli), Jessie’s son, also appear in the teaser.
The “Punky Brewster” revival also got a brand new first look, with star Soleil Moon Frye back in her role as Brewster. She has a new home with three kids who help her rediscover her “Punky power,” and Freddie Prinze Jr. also stars in the series as her ex-husband Travis.
The new streamer also unveiled teasers for the new “Psych” movie titled “Psych 2: Lassie Come Home,” the TV adaptation of the classic novel “Brave New World,” the new season of “A.P. Bio” and the kids’ animated series” “Madagascar: A Little Wild,” a prequel to the original “Madagascar” movie. Teasers for the dramas “Angelyne,” “The Capture” and “Intelligence” were also included in the Twitter thread.
An “early preview” of the ad-supported version of Peacock Premium began rolling out Wednesday to Comcast’s video customers for no extra charge, with a nationwide launch slated for July.
With the coronavirus pandemic shutting down Hollywood productions, Peacock chairman Matt Strauss said the bulk of the streaming service’s originals slate has been pushed to 2021. Strauss said he’s “very, very optimistic” about premiering a handful of Peacock originals later in 2020, including the reboots of “Punky Brewster” and “Saved by the Bell,” “Psych 2” and “Brave New World.”
