While SAVED BY THE BELL: THE NEW CLASS never became quite the sensation that its precursor SAVED BY THE BELL was, its success did last for seven consecutive seasons. The show follows the new group of students who roam the hallways of Bayside High after Zack, Kelly, Lisa, Slater, and Jessie graduate. A fresh, young cast is joined by two SAVED BY THE BELL veterans, Dennis Haskins as Principal Richard Belding, and Dustin Diamond as Screech Powers. The stage is set for some intense drama, romantic complications, and even some new friendships in the 26 episodes that comprise Season Five. The gang (with the addition of newcomer Liz Miller) embarks on adventures in Paris, the great outdoors, and of course, the neighborhood mall. While the upbeat tone of previous seasons in maintained, Season Five also addresses more serious subjects like drug use and discrimination.
