Hard-core Saved by the Bell fans have been waiting 20 years for this.
Lifetime has released the first glimpse from The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, but so far, there's nothing scandalous – the trailer depicts a normal group of teenagers dealing with hormones.
The clip shows the Elizabeth Berkley character (who played Jessie Spano) trying to de-escalate the competition between Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) and Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski) for the attention of Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), while Dustin Diamond (Screech Powers) tries to keep up with the physical prowess of Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater). And all the while, the six teens ignore adult direction – pretty much your average high school dynamic.
Diamond's 2009 book, Behind the Bell told of less-PG activities, like drug use and sex, but Lifetime claims their story is unrelated to the tell-all, and is instead based on new interviews with those associated with the show.

Despite what Public Enemy may have said, 1989 wasn't just "another summer". Though history is rarely that neat, the final summer of the '80s saw the slow fade of many of the decade's icons, as well as the launch of some of the '90s' most enduring pop-culture institutions.
In terms of cultural legacy, the summer of '89 might not be able to compete with its predecessor of two decades prior – Woodstock and Bryan Adams will do that – but 25 years later, we're still feeling its impact.
Whether you remember it or not, relive the summer of acid wash, hair metal and Do the Right Thing below.

As Zack Attack sang on Saved by the Bell, Elizabeth Berkley and her former costars are indeed "friends forever."
"It's amazing," Berkley, 41, told PEOPLE backstage Monday at Dancing with the Stars. "I don't know if you have people from high school who you're still close with, [but] even if we don't see each other for a long time, it's a connection that we'll have forever."
"Luckily we do check in, and we always have each other's backs," she adds. "It's a really special thing."
