The gang from Saved by the Bell is back! But their carefree high school days are over, they're in college now and the lessons are going to be harder and harsher than they ever expected as the group is going to have to learn to adapt to their new adult lives.

Saved by the Bell: The College Years was an American sitcom TV series which was a sequel and continuation of the original Saved by the Bell TV series and was intended to focus on Zack Morris, A.C. Slater, and Screech Powers with three all new female additions to the cast as well as a new adult figure, their dorm adviser Mike Rogers. It was the sole Saved by the Bell spin-off series that aired during primetime and only lasted a single season before ending with a cliffhanger posed by Zack and Kelly's impending nuptials.

To satisfy the demands of the fans however, the producers did successfully wrap things up with the marriage of long-time on-and-off-again couple Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski in a made-for-TV movie, Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas.

Plot Summary

Season 1

Long time high school friends Zack Morris, A.C. Slater, and Screech Powers have successfully graduated from Bayside High and are matriculating to the University of California! But is the University ready for them?

The trio finds themselves sharing a dorm apartment with a trio of girls and Zack is immediately attracted to one of them; Leslie Burke and finds himself scheming to win her affections. However, even as their relationship starts to get off the ground, Zack finds himself slammed with a blast from the past; a new transfer student named Kelly Kapowski, his long-time on-again-and-off-again girlfriend from Bayside. But their attempt to get back together crashes and burns miserably as Zack is unwilling to fully commit to a serious relationship with Kelly.

Afterwards, Kelly finds herself in the midst of a secret affair with their anthropology professor, Jeremiah Lasky before their relationship is revealed. As a result, Lasky is forced to dump Kelly as it is a major violation of the University of California's rules for a professor and student to be involved with one another. Meanwhile Zack is tired of pining after Kelly and decides to try and win her heart once more, comforting her broken heart. But when Kelly is on the verge of leaving the University for a foreign exchange program that will last for a year, Zack panics at the thought of her leaving and finally gets up the nerve to commit and proposes to her.
