This classic '90s TV show is getting a reboot—with the OG cast, no less
The highly anticipated Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot has found a familiar home. On Wednesday, February 27th, Fox, the network that housed the show for an entire decade, announced plans for a six-episode revival of the iconic 1990s hit to air this summer. Original stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, and more return to play “heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama—with a healthy dose of irreverence—that is inspired by their real lives and relationships.” According to the network, the show follows the stars as they reunite for the first time in two decades in order attempt to get a 90210 reboot going.
“What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast—whom the whole world watched grow up together—attempts to continue from where they left off?” says Fox. Noticeably missing from the reboot: Shannen Doherty and Luke Perry. Spelling accidentally confirmed the news earlier this month.
She later opened up to PEOPLE about getting the chance to work with her former co-stars again. “We’re all really excited to get back to work with each other every day,” said Spelling. “We’ve come full circle and it feels really great. This is the ultimate high school reunion and we’re going to be back together every day and I’m so excited.”
The original series ran for 10 seasons between 1990 and 2000. It starred Spelling, Garth, Priestley, Doherty, and Perry as students at the posh West Beverly Hills High School in Los Angeles. The CW famously rebooted the show in 2008 under the title 90210, with Spelling, Garth, and Doherty reprising their roles at various points throughout the show. It ran for five seasons until 2013.
