ATTENTION, TELEVISION FANS:

We don't know if your teacher recently popped a test or if you're currently a mess or if your dog ate all your homework last night.

We do know, however, that it will be alright regardless... because NBC Universal just dropped some truly incredible news:

We're about to be Saved By the Bell once again!

The company made this announcement on Tuesday morning, confirming that an updated version of this memorable sitcom will help anchor its new streaming service, which will somehow be called "Peacock."

The reboot will reportedly star Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley, who dated throughout most of the original seres as their respective characters, A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano.

In a truly amazing official logline, NBC says that Mark-Paul Gosselaar's iconic character, Zack Morris, has gone on to become the govenror  of California.

This is what the synopsis says:

When California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many low-income high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the highest performing schools in the state — including Bayside High.

The influx of new students gives the over privileged Bayside kids a much needed and hilarious dose of reality.

Does this mean Gosselaar could make an appearance?

You never know -- but he's currently signed on to star as a lead on ABC's new series Mixed-ish, having just come off Fox's The Passage, which followed roles on the programs Nobodies and Pitch.

Gosselaar has enjoyed a very strong career since Saved By the Bell went off the air.

Conversely, Berkley made headlines way back in 1995 for starring as a stripper in the movie Showgirls. She's done very little since.

Lopez, who has hosted Extra and Access Hollywood, among other television shows, hasn't acted in ages -- but did recently stir up controversy for some homophobic remarks.

As for other original cast members?

Tiffani Thiessen has gone on to a strong career and is unlikely to want to reprise the role of Kelly Kapowski, while Dustin Diamond is now best known for having starred in a sex tape and for getting arrested a lot.

And Lark Voorhies appears to have some mental problems.

Saved by the Bell originally aired on NBC from 1989 to 1993.

It cented on on a group of friends as they navigated life at Bayside High School and the cast included:

Berkley (as Jessie Spano), Lopez (as A.C Slater), Gosselaar (as Zack Morris), Thiessen (as Kelly Kapowski), Voorhies (as Lisa Turtle), Diamond (as Screech) and Dennis Haskins (as principal Mr. Belding).

An eventual movie was made of the sitcom, along with a very brief run of the Saturday morning series as a primetime show where Zack, Slater and company went to the same college.

It didn't exactly fare very well.

And yet, in the wake of this revival news and in honor of Berkley's Spano during her addiction to caffeine pills:

We're not even scared. We're just SO excited!
