This past December it was announced that the original cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 were looking to reunite for a new series, although rather than a revival of the 1990s classic, this would take the form of a mockumentary with the cast portraying heightened versions of themselves as they attempt to get a faux reboot off the ground.
Well, the project is now officially moving forward, with Fox closing deals with stars Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris and granting a six-episode limited series order for the new show, titled 90210. Here’s the first teaser followed by the official logline:
In the new series, 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?
“Beverly Hills, 90210 left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation,” said Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn. “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.”
