Set twenty years after the past events from the original show, in Bayside, the upcoming show revolves around a new batch of students at Bayside High coming from extra-affluent as well as working-class families. The group of pupils from the working-class families was transferred to the school as instructed by Zack Morris, the Governor of California, who is always under controversy because of his wierd system of administration of shutting down of many low-income high schools in order to send the students from those schools to the states’ highest-performing educational institutes. The show features the actors from the original show as parents and teachers at the school in this series.
