[ # ] NBC’s streaming site Peacock revives Saved By the Bell and Punky Brewster
September 17th, 2019 under NBC


Today, NBC has finally revealed details about their streaming site including its name. It will be called…Peacock. Which makes sense. They also said that it will hit the world wide web at the end of July during the Summer Olympics.

Now that you know the name and when it will launch, what can we expect from it? Lots and lots of shows and movies. A lot of classic shows like Everybody Loves Raymond, House and The Office. Some rebooted ones like Punky Brewster, Saved By the Bell with Jesse (Elizabeth Berkley) and Slater (Mario Lopez) and Battlestar Galactica. There will also be new shows like Dr. Death starring Alec Baldwin and Christian Slater, Brave New World with Demi Moore and comedy Rutherford Falls with Ed Helms. Late Night with Seth Meyers’ Amber Ruffin is getting a weekly late night show. As if there were not enough Real Housewives shows, Peacock will be getting a spinoff.

When it comes to movies, Psych the Movie 2 will premiere on Peacock and not USA Network. We better get a revival of the series as compensation. Along with big screen movies like the Fast and the Furious franchise, The Breakfast Club, Mamma Mia, Jaws and Back to the Future.

That is a lot of streaming! How much will it cost? They will announce that closer to the premiere date. Now is when you start negotiating with your friends. You say to them if you give me a password to Netflix, I will give you one for Peacock. Then you do the same with another friend for Disney+ and/or Hulu.

Forget cutting the cord, we are going to have to stop paying all the streaming sites. We can no longer say there is nothing on because there is always something to watch somewhere.
