When FOX announced its Beverly Hills, 90210 limited series revival back in February, there were a couple names noticeably absent from the reuniting cast. They were Luke Perry (rest in peace) and Shannen Doherty. Well, the latter has finally signed on for the limited series which finds the cast, not playing their original characters, but rather heightened versions of themselves.
“The core cast will all 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. Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot up and running. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. 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?”
The 90210 revival will return this summer on FOX for six episodes. Check out the first promo below.
“Beverly Hills, 90210 left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation,” said Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, Fox. “Its powerful legacy is an important part of our network’s DNA — bold stories not told anywhere else and bigger-than-life-characters — and we’re honored to bring back the beloved original cast members for 90210.”
