Lark Voohries re-emerges as Lisa Turtle in ‘Saved by The Bell’ reboot
The new series premieres on Peacock on November 25
It looks like Lark Voohries will be reprising her role as Lisa Turtle in the upcoming revival of Saved by the Bell that’s set to premiere on Peacock in November.
The actress, who suggested she was left out of the loop when talk of a reboot began, is looking quite happy in a photo released by the NBC streamer, meaning she’ll join her former friends and several new faces at Bayside High. According to reports, she’ll play an all-grown-up Lisa Turtle who has a thriving, successful career in fashion.
Lark Voohries has been battling Schizoaffective disorder and admitted her diagnosis may have had something to do with not being included in early talks on the new series.
“I have to admit I did feel a bit slighted and hurt when I was not invited to be part of the Saved by the Bell reunion, as well as other cast members’ events,” she said on the Dr. Oz Show in February. “Yet of course, I also realized that having this puzzling disorder may have played a major part in that factual decision.”
Several of the original stars of 90’s hit will return for the reboot, including Elizabeth Berkley, Mario Lopez, Mark-Paul Gosselaa, and Tiffani Thiessen. Aside from the OG’s, there’s a whole new batch of teens ready to get in on the action. The new in-crowd consists of Josie Totah, Dexter Darden, Mitchell Hoog, Haskiri Velazquez, Alycia Pascual-Pena and Belmont Cameli.
Here’s the official description:
When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many underfunded high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the most well-funded schools in the state – including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the privileged Bayside kids (who never have a problem that can’t be solved in twenty-two minutes) a much-needed dose of reality.
Saved by the Bell hits Peacock on November 25.
