Some of Peacock’s most anticipated upcoming shows, including Saved By The Bell, Punky Brewster and Battlestar Galactica, revisit beloved television series that aired on NBCUniversal’s airwaves more than a decade ago. And while Saved by the Bell will feature plenty of Easter eggs for fans of the original series, the upcoming series hopes to look and sound very different from the original.
