'Head of the Class' trailer


The trailer for Head of the Class dropped recently and it introduces a new cast with few reprises from the original sitcom. The trailer for the reboot has a very uplifting contemporary feel to it, also acting as a reminiscent of another high school sitcom reboot, Saved by the Bell, where each character in the sitcom shows off their individuality.

The original Head of the Class was an extremely popular sitcom that aired on ABC for five seasons between 1986 to 1991 with a total of 114 episodes. After the success of Booksmart, Head of the Class seems like a perfect reboot. Following in its predecessor's footsteps, the reboot will adopt a similar approach but with a 21st century spin on the teacher trying to inspire their overachieving students to go out and enjoy life instead of running after grades.

Head of the Class will release on November 4 on HBO Max. All five seasons of the original sitcom are already available on the same platform.
