Default Saved by the Bell reboot is open to Dustin Diamond reviving his Screech role

https://www.usmagazine.com/entertain...diamond-cameo/

“We talk about Screech’s character and there are little Easter eggs throughout the show of what he’s doing now, and you can find some if you look for them,” showrunner Tracey Wigfield tells The Hollywood Reporter's TV's Top 5 podcasts. “And this season, he wasn’t tied to any of the new characters or anything. But that’s not to say it’s not open for the future, not knowing what stories will be or anything for a cameo maybe.”

Lark Voorhies did a radio interview recently and hinted that Dustin was holding out for more money.

“He wants to be paid and respected, we would [like] for him to come back on set. He’s going through his growing pains…he can get back on track. He’s going through his adult issues and all of this but I am sure he’ll be back — granted the perfect contract for him, I’m sure he would be back.”

Before his death, Dustin Diamond was in talks to reprise Screech on Peacock's Saved by the Bell reboot

"He was upset that he wasn't asked to be a part of the reboot, but he talked to one of the executive producers about possibly coming to appear on the second season and he was happy about that," the actor's longtime manager, Roger Paul, tells People. Meanwhile, Mark-Paul Gosselaar discussed Diamond's death with Tamron Hall today, saying: "It’s always tough when someone passes away. I think it’s even more so when the individual is someone you know, and the age of Dustin. It was only a few weeks ago that we heard about his diagnosis, and for it to happen so quickly is shocking." Gosselaar said the Saved by the Bell cast plans to get together to remember Diamond.

I just hope that his passing gets the acknowledgement on the show that it deserves.

God bless you and his family always!!!

We already know that Screech Powers is related to the real-life abused antisemitism of deceased original SBTB creator Sam Bobrick's. Even if Diamond is already dead officially, I wouldn't kill off that Screech character, but rather than including, I would reboot that character in a different way, unlike Bobrick, in a separate sitcom, which is a non-discriminative type.

Mario Lopez: Saved by the Bell is planning "something special" to honor Dustin Diamond

"We're going to have our first table read in about a week or so, but we are planning (something) special" to honor the late Diamond, says Lopez. "We're ready to start up again in June and I will be in all those episodes."

Dustin's gone, but his Screech role may not be gone yet because:

1.) We need to know if Tracey Wigfield is against autistic characters, or not against, first of all.

2.) If not against, then that Screech character needs to rebooted and revived by a different new actor, which won't be connected to Sam Bobrick this time, in a different sitcom project, whose setting is not in either Bayside or Valley High School settings.
