The Fox Network has ordered the revival of the vintage series Beverly Hills, 90210. The series will air after 19 years, since the series ended in on May 17, 2000. They also revealed that the broadcaster has ordered initial six episodes of the series and are set to air in the summer of 2019.
Who are the casts?
And according to Variety original cast members Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling are all set to return.
The original series was created by Darren Star and produced by Aaron Spelling. It also starred Shannen Doherty, Luke Perry, James Eckhouse, Carol Potter, Joe E. Tata, Kathleen Robertson, Vanessa Marcil, Christine Elise McCarthy, and Vincent Young.
Perry, who is a regular on Riverdale revealed he “will do as many [episodes] as he can do” while there is “no status right now” on Shannen Doherty, but the show “we would love to have her on.”
Spelling shared on the interview after her exit from The Masked Singer,
“It’s not technically a reboot, because I feel like everyone has seen the reboot. We don’t want to be the last ones like doing the reboot thing, and no one wants to see like old versions of ourselves, but they do want to see us playing our characters, so what we’re doing is the entire cast is playing heightened versions of themselves.
Think Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes, in an hourlong show, and we’re all playing heightened versions, so it could be fictional, it could be nonfictional, people will have to guess. And then we will have pop-ins, because we’re behind the scenes trying to do the reboot.”
Changes in the revived series
However, slight changes have been made. The revived series will now be called 90210 instead of Beverly Hills, 90210.
There are few other twists in the plot as well. The former actors will play a different version of the character- ones where they have gone their separate ways while the series reunites the now- adult friends.
The president of entertainment for Fox, Michael Thorn said,
“‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation. 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.’”
On October 4, 1990, Beverly Hills, 90210 had premiered on Fox and ran for successful 10 seasons, it’s final episode being aired on May 17, 2000. The series inspired the creation of other series including The CW’s 90210 (2008-2013) and Fox’s Melrose Place.
The writer and executive producer of the revived series are Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler. Both had also worked together on The CW’s 90210. In addition, original actors Gabrielle Carteris, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering will also be the show’s executive producers.
We hope that fans are ready for TV Nostalgia.
