First Zack Morris, now Kelly Kapowski?? In the latest episode of "here comes another '90s reboot we never asked for but is happening," it appears Tiffani Thiessen was clueless about the Saved by the Bell reboot on the way. And yes, that's quite problematic as she was one of the main stars of the teen series.

  • Tiffani recently revealed no one told her about the upcoming 'Saved by the Bell' reboot.

    In case ya missed it, Saved by the Bell is coming back on NBCUniversal's new streaming service, Peacock. Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez, both producers on the upcoming series, are slated to make their return as Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater. Apparently, the new series will center on Zack Morris, the new governor of California, making a decision to integrate students in underperforming high schools into higher-performing ones -- like Bayside High.

  • "I don't know anything about it," she told the outlet. "Literally, Mark-Paul and I were like, 'Oh, wow! I didn't know that was happening.'"

    "But it seems like everyone is doing a reboot, these days. It's, like, popular, I guess.

    "I'm a girl that likes the originals. But that's me, though. I'm nostalgic that way," she continued. "But I’m sure people are going to be excited about it. It seems almost popular to redo a show."

    When asked about the possibility of a cameo, Tiffani says her Netflix show, Alexa & Katie, is keeping her pretty busy that likely won't make it a possibility.

  • Like Tiffani, Mark-Paul Gosselaar was left out of the loop about the new 'Saved by the Bell' show.

    "I read it in the trades just like everybody else," he said in an interview with Variety about being left in the dark. "Honestly, I was never approached. I woke up to the news this morning with a kind of 'huh' response."

    Sidenote: How is there going to be a Saved by the Bell show that needs a Zack Morris and doesn't reach out to ... Zack Morris?

  • We're gonna need some answers as most of the original Bayside High gang still hangs out.

    Seeing as Mario, Elizabeth, Mark-Paul, and Tiffani -- and their respected spouses -- all broke bread together back in April, how on Earth could Kelly Kaposwki and Zack Morris be left in the dark about the project?

    It makes no sense.

  • We don't know how we feel about this one ...

    Lies -- we do: This is effed up.

    Even if Tiffani and Mark-Paul are busy and decide not to join in the reboot (or do a cameo), give them the chance to say no -- or that they're too busy. Zack and Kelly were two of the biggest characters on the show (their love story seeped into the spin-off series and had a special, for heaven's sake). They need to be included.
