In a statement, Gosselaar said, "For years I have been asked by the dedicated fans of Saved by the Bell to revisit the show. I couldn't wrap my head around an idea that would keep the audience entertained and celebrate the beloved series we created over 30 years ago, mostly because I can't remember a thing about making it, and I am thrilled to say I have found the answer."

"I've been told there are other TV shows besides Saved by the Bell, and someday I hope to watch one of them--they sound fantastic," he said.
