Lil Yachty Remade The Saved By The Bell Theme Song
NBC is reviving Saved By The Bell on their new streaming platform Peacock, and they recruited Lil Yachty to record a new version of the theme song. “We were so excited to have Lil Yachty update the original Saved By The Bell theme song,” executive producer Tracey Wigfield told Entertainment Weekly. “Besides being cool and catchy, his music has a great sense of humor, which I really appreciate. I was less excited when he said he wanted to do it because his mom was a big fan of the show because that made me feel 100 years old.”
The new Saved By The Bell is a direct sequel to the classic ’90s show. After Governor Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) shuts down some underfunded high schools, the affected students are moved to Bayside High. Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley Lauren once again play A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano, now a physical education teacher and a school counselor at their alma mater. Tiffani Thiessen also returns as Kelly Kapowski, now Zack’s wife, and Lark Voorhies reprises the role of Lisa Turtle.
The show also features a new cast of high schoolers including Zack and Kelly’s son Mac Morris (Mitchell Hoog), Jessie Spano’s son Jamie (Belmont Cameli), their friend Lexi (Josie Totah), and incoming students Daisy (Haskiri Velazquez), Aisha (Alycia Pascual-Pena), and Devante (Dexter Darden), plus new addition John Michael Higgins as Principal Toddman.
