The stars of Beverly Hills 90210 will reunite for a meta-reboot of their ’90s series.
Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling have signed on. Luke Perry and Shannen Doherty are the holdouts, but a source tells Entertainment Weekly that “the door is open” and they could still join the cast.
The six-episode series, titled 90210, will air this summer on FOX.
This is the official description: “The core cast will all play heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama — with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships. 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?”
