Peacock announced today that Saved by the Bell has been picked up for a second season. Coming less than two months after its premiere, the good news was seen as inevitable, as the comedy is currently the top original series on the streaming service.

A reimagining of the beloved 1990s sitcom, the half-hour series follows a new group of students at Bayside High, which recently integrated some new students after California governor Zack Morris closed a bunch of underfunded high schools. This influx of new students gives the privileged Bayside kids a much-needed reality check.

Peacock has ordered another 10 episodes of Saved by the Bell for Season 2, matching the length of its freshman run. Look for a return later this year.
