It looks like the Beverly Hills, 90210 revival is getting more and more real! Actress Tori Spelling took to Instagram on Thursday, June 6, to reveal the actor who will be playing her TV husband on the iconic show’s quasi-revival, BH90210.
“Excited to announce that Ivan Sergei will be playing my hubby on @bh90210,” the 46-year-old beauty wrote on social media alongside an edited meme she shared that showed a younger version of her and Ivan. “Well, Tori’s hubby so don’t panic Donna and David fans Welcome to the family!”
The Mommywood author even gushed about previously working with Ivan — who is best known for his role of Henry Mitchell in Charmed. “This will be the 2nd time Ivan and I have worked together ( and in Vancouver!),” she sweetly added. “We starred together 20 +years ago in the TV movie #MotherMayISleepWithDanger #bh90210 #reunited.”
According to Deadline, the 48-year-old will be playing the role of Nate, an ex-hockey star who is looking to pursue a career as an announcer for professional sports.
Fans of the beloved American sitcom first heard news of the revival after Tori made an announcement in February. “It is the OG crew back together, and we’re playing heightened versions of ourselves,” the proud mom-ofi-five — who shares kids Liam, 12, Stella, 10, Hattie, 7, Finn, 6, and Beau, 2 with her hubby, Dean McDermott — told Access Live at the time. “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.”
Not even a month after the initial announcement, the So Notorious star opened up about reprising her first major role of Donna Martin on the show’s quasi-revival, BH90210. “We are all so excited to go back to work together because it’s like family coming back together,” she shared with Us Weekly. “It’s like going back to a high school reunion, but then like never leaving each other again.”
Besides Tori, other original cast members are expected to return for the show’s highly anticipated reunion — including Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestly and Ian Ziering. Beloved actor Luke Perry was also apart of the original series — which ran for 10 seasons from 1990 to 2000 — but sadly passed away in March after suffering a massive stroke.
