Sep. 18 2019, Published 9:49 p.m. ET

NBCUniversal is launching a new steaming service titled Peacock in April 2020, and it will be showing original content as well as some of NBC‘s legacy series like Parks and Recreation and The Office. Peacock will be both advertisement and subscription-based, boasting more than 15,000 hours of content. Pricing details are yet to be announced. But of course, Twitter’s already got jokes…

Guys, stop being mean. This isn’t an elementary school’s playground. Have some respect. This isn’t funny. Grow up, guys…

OK I’m done.

ANYWAY!! The new originals planned for the service include a Battlestar Galactica reboot from Sam Esmail, the guy behind Mr. Robot, a new sitcom starring Ed Helms from Schur, the man behind The Good Place, a Saturday Night Live docuseries called Who Wrote That, a Real Housewives spinoff, reboots of both Saved by the Bell and Punky Brewster, original animated content from DreamWorks Animation, an original talk show series from Jimmy Fallon, and of course – Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Peacock chief (what a title) Bonnie Hammer who oversees direct-to-consumer and digital enterprises for NBCU told The Hollywood Reporter, “We believe we’ll have something for everyone.” Despite being one of the last competitors to enter the increasingly crowded streaming market, Peacock (lol) does have a few tricks up their sleeve. Not only are they taking back The Office and Parks and Recreation from Netflix, one of the OG online streaming giants, they will be the only one showing the 2020 Summer Olympics. All 44 past seasons of Saturday Night Live will also be available to stream.
