Entertainment: How 'Saved by the Bell' Season 2 Will Honor Dustin Diamond

Wild prospect Matt Boldy out four to six weeks with ankle fracture

  Wild prospect Matt Boldy out four to six weeks with ankle fracture Matt Boldy is one of Minnesota’s top prospects after being the 12th overall pick back in 2019.  Boldy wrapped up his college career last season at Boston College with 31 points in 22 games to lead the Eagles in scoring before turning pro and finishing up the year in the minors with AHL Iowa.  He averaged more than a point per game there as well with 18 points in 14 contests, putting him in a spot to make a legitimate push for a regular role in Minnesota’s lineup coming into training camp.

Honoring his memory. Although Dustin Diamond wasn’t in season 1 of Peacock’s Saved by the Bell revival, there were plans to have him pop up in season 2. However, the actor died after battling lung cancer in February. He was 44.

Executive producer Franco Bario spoke to Diamond, who portrayed Samuel “Screech” Powers in Good Morning, Miss Bliss, and Saved by the Bell, ahead of season 1 to “fill him in on the Screech mentions in the first season and how those may lead us to possible stories that would include him in season 2,” he shared with Variety in a new interview.

Bario has since been working with showrunner Tracey Wigfield to create a celebration of both Diamond and Screech in the show’s sophomore season.

“I didn’t know him and I hadn’t met him. [But] just thinking about it as a fan, I knew we wanted to do more than just putting a picture of him up at the end,” Wigfield said, noting that the producers then spoke with original cast members Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Thiessen and Lark Voorhies about a tribute.

“[The] OG cast members [were] keen to do something,” Wigfield noted. The original fivesome will reunite at The Max, as documented in the first photos of season 2, where they will reminisce about their longtime friend.

The tribute will include clips of Diamond in the original series, which aired from 1989 to 1993. He also appeared in The College Years from 1993 to 1994 and The New Class from 1993 to 2000.

“A lot of what Screech was known for was being the butt of a joke or being an outrageous character, and what we were hoping for was using the clips to show how important he was to the show, but also to the other characters in the show,” Bario explained.

“At the beginning of this season, we already were coming into writing season 2 [where] obviously Dustin was one thing, but we also were like in a pandemic and in general in the first episode, everyone was feeling the same sense of everyone understands how heavy this last year has been,” Wigfield added. “It would have been wrong to not acknowledge that in a real way and to not have our OG characters mourning this character that we’ll never get to see again. That, I wanted to put on the screen, but I just wanted to make sure we were being as sensitive as possible. There was a real guy who had people who loved him. You don’t want to make any jokes or talk about it in any way that might hurt anyone’s feelings.”

Saved by the Bell season 2 premieres on Peacock on Thursday, November 25.

Meghan Markle’s Friendship Bracelet Makes the Sweetest Holiday GiftSome days, we wish we could go back in time to the glory days of youth. Don’t you miss slumber parties, sleepaway camp and school spirit? As Kacey Musgraves sings, “Me and all of my best friends, we were always together. I remember talking on the phone all night, didn’t know it was a simple time.” Those simple times were simply the best. Now we’re nostalgic for friendship bracelets! We always used to bead and braid during play dates with pals. But just because we’re grown up doesn’t mean we have to give up our favorite jewelry from our past.
