Mark-Paul Gosselaar is ready to stroll down memory lane and Saved By The Bell fans will be thrilled to know MPG will be watching the first season of Saved by the Bell for the first time since he finished working on the series a couple of decades ago. The reason? He’ll be commenting on all the first season episodes for the new podcast “Zach to the Future,” with co-collaborator Dashiell Driscoll, creator and narrator of Funny Or Die’s “Zack Morris Is Trash” and admitted SBTB superfan. The two will talk about episodes in the weekly podcast, discussing highlights, lowlights and behind-the-scenes stories. There will also be featured guests appearing in episodes.
In a statement to Variety, Gosselaar’s explained, “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.”
The actor also posted a three-minute intro to the podcast with the announcement on his Twitter account.
