The gang returns home in new 90210 promo
Fans of the classic teen drama series Beverly Hills, 90210 are anxiously waiting for the the upcoming revival featuring the return of nearly the entire original cast and Fox has released a new promo featuring the stars at the round table reading the scripts for the continuation, which can be viewed in the player below!
Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Shannen, 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 first rebooted series, simply titled 90210, debuted on The CW in 2008 and ran for five seasons until 2013, featuring original cast members Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty, Ann Gillespie, Tori Spelling and Joe E. Tata in guest appearances. The upcoming meta reboot was originally being shopped to multiple networks, with CBS actively developing the project as recently as December, but it appears the series will return to its home network of Fox — and will be labeled as a co-production of CBS TV Studios and Fox Entertainment.
Luke Perry, who passed away on March 4, had not previously committed due to his work on Riverdale. BH90210 will pay tribute to its star..
Mike Chessler and Chris Alberghini, who worked on The CW series, are on board to write and executive produce. They have some history with the mockumentary format, as well, as the two created So NoTORIous, the Tori Spelling vehicle that aired for one season on VH1 back in 2006.
The six-part revival of Beverly Hills, 90210 is set to debut on August 7 on Fox.
