Another day means another streaming service is on the way. As if the launch of Disney+ and pending launch of HBO Max weren’t enough to make you unexpectedly wistful for the days of regular old cable packages, NBC is officially getting in on the overcrowded market fun. The network has announced it will launch (the unfortunately named) Peacock next spring. And chances are you’ll likely be ponying up for one more subscription service, because the announced lineup of classic, new, and rebooted shows is worth preening over.

NBC announced their new service will debut in April 2020. Named for the network’s logo, it will feature 15,000 hours of content, and that will ultimately include modern classic series like Parks & Recreation (October 2020) and The Office (January 2021). It will also be home to legendary NBC shows like CheersFrasier, and SNL, as well as series made famous at other networks, like Everybody Loves Raymond and Married … with Children. Peacock will also include movies from Universal Pictures, Focus Features, DreamWorks Animation, Illumination, and more. Below you can find a full list of other classic shows and movies that will be available in their library.

But Peacock won’t just offer a trip down pop culture memory lane. It will also be home to reboots of beloved shows, including a new take on Saved by the Bell, which will feature original stars Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley and Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Josie Totah will star in the series. Punky Brewster will also return with Soleil Moon Frye playing an adult Punky, a single mom who has three kids.

THR reports NBC has also tapped Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail to head up a straight-to-series Battlestar Galactica relaunch. The show is expected to “be an updated, more modern look at the world” that will be “inspired by Syfy’s 2004 series” (which will also be available to stream on the service), rather than the original 1978 show.
