The network explained on Thursday that it’s film, “The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story,” is currently in the making in Vancouver. It is set to premiere on Labor Day.

Saved by the Bell is an American television sitcom that aired on NBC from 1989 to 1993. The show was a reconstruction of the Disney Channel series Good Morning, Miss Bliss.

It follows a group of friends and their principal, and although the series primarily showcases relaxed comedic situations, it also touches on serious social issues, such as drug use, driving under the influence, homelessness, divorce, death, and environmental issues.
