“Saved By the Bell” is one of the many ’90s sitcoms getting a reboot, but not everyone from the original cast is included.
Lark Voorhies — who played Lisa Turtle in the original series — confessed on the “Dr. Oz” show that she felt snubbed when producers did not reach out to her for the revival, according to NBC News.
“I have to admit I did feel a bit slighted and hurt when I was not invited to be a part of the ‘Saved By the Bell’ reunion, as well as other cast members’ events,” Voorhies read aloud from her diary in a teaser clip for the episode.
Nothing has been revealed about the episode airing Wednesday other than addressing mental health and not being inviting to the revival. In 2012, her mom told PEOPLE that Voorhies was battling bipolar disorder.
“Yet, I also realize having this puzzling disorder may have played a major part in that factual decision [to leave me out],” Voorhies continued. “With that in mind, I am truly thankful for having had the chance to work on a show that has been so successful.”
Voorhies is not the only original cast member who has not been asked to join the reboot. Tiffani Thiessen, who played Kelly Kapowski, also has yet to be asked. Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley are all set to reprise their roles, and Josie Totah will bring in a new character to the series.
NBC announced the reboot in September, which will air on the network’s streaming service Peacock.
