"It's an exciting opportunity to take what people fell in love with in season 1 and go deeper and be even funnier," the actress shared with PEOPLE.

Berkley, who plays Jessie Spano, also noted that fans of the original series will be pleased with how the new and old tie together.

"There are fun twists and plot twists in storylines for us that I think people are going to really have fun with," she said. "Whether it's Easter eggs that are embedded in the show — that just hearkens back to the original — or in new connections."

The 10-episode first season of the series debuted on Peacock in November, and two months later, the streaming service announced they ordered another 10 episodes for season 2.

"I'm thrilled that Saved by the Bell has been renewed," writer and executive producer Tracey Wigfield said at the time. "I've been blown away by all the love for the show and can't wait to go back and make more episodes."

"Hopefully we stay on Peacock for many more seasons, and then in 30 years, somebody does a reboot of our reboot and invents the threeboot," she joked.

"Dustin, you will be missed my man. The fragility of this life is something never to be taken for granted," Lopez expressed on Instagram. "Prayers for your family will continue on..."

"Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Dustin Diamond, a true comedic genius. My sincere condolences to his family and friends," Gosselaar tweeted after hearing the news. "Looking back at our time working together, I will miss those raw, brilliant sparks that only he was able to produce. A pie in your face, my comrade."
