Instead of traveling home for Thanksgiving, we’re going back to Bayside High in California! Well, at least, in our heads, as we will technically never be leaving the comfort of our own couch (read: we live here now) when the Saved by the Bell reboot premieres Nov. 25! While we’re super excited to see all the returning characters (Mario Lopez still looks so good, TBH), there’s one new character in particular who has already caught our attention: Mitchell Hoog, who plays Mac Morris, the charming son of California governor Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar).
While there’s no doubt that Hoog looks good onscreen – have you seen this trailer? – the man also is pretty fascinating in real life, too. From his mental, physical, and spiritual philosophy to what he did during quarantine, this Colorado native is really cool IRL. Read these fun facts about Hoog in the slides ahead as you’re waiting for the show to premiere on Peacock on Nov. 25.
