It’s happening! Tori Spelling sat down with Access Live on Friday, February 1, to spill out quite the bit of news: Beverly Hills, 90210 is making its return back to television.
“It’s confirmed,” the 45-year-old said during the chat. “We’re doing a new 90210.” Playing off the insane reactions of the show’s hosts, especially Kit Hoover, Tori added, “Did I just confirm something that wasn’t known?” The Aaron Spelling-produced show lasted ten seasons on Fox, wrapping up in the year 2000. That said, what can we exactly expect from the reboot now that it’s been almost 20 years?
“It is the OG crew back together, and we’re playing heightened versions of ourselves,” the Stori Telling author explained. “The fans will be pleasantly surprised, though, because we will intercut that with scenes from the show. So it’ll be a whole ensemble cast.” Although some faces may not be able to fully commit to the revival.
“Luke [Perry] has Riverdale, so Luke will do as many as he can do,” she said. “But almost the whole original cast.” Cast-member Shannon Doherty may not be able to return either after her three-year battle with breast cancer. “We would love to have her on,” Tori said. “There is no status right now.”
We originally heard of a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot back in December, so it is great news to hear one of the teen drama’s main players confirm the news. Other actors that we should all be excited to see back on the show include Brian Austin Green (David Silver), Gabrielle Carteris (Andrea Zuckerman), Jennie Garth (Kelly Taylor) and of course, Ian Ziering (Steve Sanders), who we all now know from the very memorable Sharknado franchise.
This latest revival will be added to the long-list of classic shows that have returned or are planning a comeback. From Roseanne (now The Conners), to Will & Grace, to Murphy Brown, these programs may continue to churn out of the nostalgia factory.
