Dexter Darden To Star In 'Saved By The Bell' Reboot At Peacock

The Maze Runner star Dexter Darden has been tapped to star in Peacock’s Saved by the Bell reboot.

According to Deadline, Darden will join Josie Totah as one of the members of the new cast. Returning cast members Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley are also set to star.

His role hasn’t been divulged, but this show won’t be the only thing Darden will be seen in the near future. He has Hulu’s The Binge coming up as well as the Spike Lee-executive produced Son of the South

30 Rock writer-producer Tracey Wigfield is set to executive produce the Saved by the Bell reboot. While it’s not known if the series will debut at the same time as Peacock’s launch, the streaming service itself will debut in April for Comcast subscribers and be available to everyone by July.
