The new iteration of Saved by the Bell has found its queen bee. 

Multiple outlets confirm that the new Saved By the Bell series at NBCUniversal’s streaming service Peacock has cast Josie Totah as its lead. 

Totah who came out as transgender in 2018 will star in the half-hour comedy as “Lexi, a beautiful, sharp-tongued cheerleader and the most popular girl at Bayside High who is both admired and feared by her fellow students.”

The reboot also features original stars Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley reprising their roles of A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano. 

The comedy follows what happens when California Gov. Zack Morris gets into hot water for sending low-income students to the highest-performing schools in the state — including Bayside High.

The new series hails from Tracey Wigfield. It was picked up straight to series back in September.
