Jennie Garth has joined the cast of the CW’s “Beverly Hills, 90210” spin-off as a recurring, reprising her role as Kelly Taylor from the original series, says The Hollywood Reporter.
In the spin-off, Kelly is a guiding counselor at her alma mater, West Beverly Hills High.
Garth raised speculation about a possible stint on the new “90210” after she departed the CBS comedy pilot “My Best Friend’s Girl” last month.
The “90210” spin-off is considered a lock for a series pickup at the CW and is expected to be the central piece of the network’s upfront presentation next week.
Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah rewrote the pilot script and are executive producing the pilot. The two also are in talks to stay on as showrunners.
