The 90’s are calling… they want their show back! But for real, they really do.
According to Buzzfeed, Lifetime is producing an original movie titled, The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story– a look at what life behind the scenes of the hit sitcom was like.

This comes just five years after Dustin Diamond (Screech) released Behind the Bell which accused the cast of threesomes, doing drugs and much more. While the movie is separate from Dustin’s book, it is based loosely on the same subject.
How much truth is there to his book, no one really knows. Dustin’s account can be completely false considering he’s the only one that didn’t become successful after the shows end. Maybe his tell-all was all about getting his name back in the headlines and making a few bucks?
The producers are also basing their story on inside interviews, which corroborate Dustin’s story. Their hoping to show the the reality of the hit 90’s sitcom. (My question is who are these interviews with!)
Robin Lippin, the original SBTB casting director, was enlisted to help scout the actors to play the young Zach and friends. These actors are technically playing two different characters– the SBTB character and the actor that played said character in SBTB. I know, it’s super confusing.

The cast is as follows; Degrassi star Dylan Everett as Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), Shameless’ Sam Kindseth as Dustin Diamond, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones actor Julian Works as Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater), newcomer Alyssa Lynch as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski), Supernatural’s Tiera Skovbye as Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano), and Blink’s Taylor Russell McKenzie as Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle).
Really, I don’t believe anyone can actually take on the role of Kelly Kapowski. Alyssa Lynch has some big shoes to fill. I can’t wait to hear some statements from some of the original cast as I’m sure they aren’t too thrilled about this. Some things are just better left in the past!
The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story airs Monday, Sept. 1 on Lifetime.
What are your thoughts? Will you watch the movie? Do you believe Dustin’s story?
WATCH: Freeform Drops ‘The Bold Type’ Fifth and Final Season Trailer
Raise a glass to the final season of The Bold Type.
Freeform unleashed a trailer for the final 6 episodes of the fashion-focused drama and things are heating up between old flames, while new ones are also on the horizon.
Kat is still trying to get over her problematic hook-up with Ava, while her ex, Adeena, is back in her life.
After a disagreement about children, Sutton and Richard ended their brief marriage. But it seems that all is not lost as the teaser shows them having trouble letting go (and still hooking up).
I have faith that Sutton and Richard will figure it out because they’ve always been #relationshipgoals.
Jane’s continuing to find her voice and is possibly, definitely developing feelings for a writer that’s “under her.”
Watch the trailer below now:

WATCH: ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4 Trailer Focuses on Eleven’s Past
A new promo for the upcoming Stranger Things Season 4 is putting the focus back on Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).
Netflix released a new video, which dives into Eleven’s dark and heartbreaking past.
It also marks the return of her “papa,” Dr. Martin Brenner.
The craziest part is that it seems like Eleven isn’t the only supernatural child in Hawkins. Do they have the same powers as she does?
Or is this exploring her origin story? A shot of the door marked “11” indicates that this may be a look into the past.
Watch the teaser now:
As fans patiently wait for new episodes — which were delayed due to COVID — a former teaser revealed that Hopper is alive and a prisoner in Russia.
How do these two things connect?
