In Saved by the Bell: The College Years, the cast dealt with college life at the fictional California University, generally understood to be University of California, Berkeley. The show's premise was very similar to the original Saved by the Bell series, with the six characters getting into different situations each week while remaining under the watchful eye of their resident director and later the Dean of Students.

During the latter part of the series, Dean Susan McMann (Holland Taylor) joined the series as its authority figure and instantly developed a dislike for Zack, knowing about his scheming ways.
