If, like us, you couldn’t miss Beverly Hills 90210 way back in the day then rejoice, we can all feel young again with the upcoming BH90210. Or we can at least see that they all got older too.
The new six-episode “event” series with the abbreviated title isn’t just some tawdry cash-in on memories, for it actually stars the original folk from the original series. Didn’t their careers all kick on big time?
So, Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling and Shannen Doherty all return 29 years later, all very much grown up. Sadly, of course, we lost Luke Perry earlier this year.
The return is heralded as having “a big twist”, in that they will all play “heightened versions” of their characters inspired by their actors’ real lives and relationships. It’s based around the actors deciding that it’s time to get a Bev reboot happening, and get going again from where they left off. Ooh, meta!
BH90210 is set for an August airing in the US. We eagerly await an Australian date.
