The Peach Pit is back in business. Fox has released a new trailer for the quasi-revival of Beverly Hills, 90210 called BH90210, which finds the original cast returning to play themselves in a fictionalized account of life after a hit TV show. The latest promo opens with the gang playing with their vintage 90s era dolls in a replica of the Peach Pit, going over dialogue for their revival within the 'revival'. Growing tried of the reenactment, they collectively throw their toys down and head off to set to shoot the real thing. Except for Brian Austin Green. He returns to retrieve his doll so his kids can have a souvenir.
BH90210 started picking up steam last year, with most of the original cast returning to appear as themselves. Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling were signed on almost immediately. Shannen Doherty and Luke Perry were the only hold outs. Sadly, Perry, who was expected to return for at least a few episodes, having limited time due to his schedule on Riverdale, passed away before shooting began. To help honor his spirit, long time friend Shannon Doherty, who notoriously clashed with most of the cast, save Perry, decided to return.
BH90210 is Fox's most highly anticipated new summer series. Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Shannen, 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?
Shannen Doherty starred as "Brenda Walsh" on the groundbreaking teen drama, but this time when the cast gets back together, it will come with a big twist: the seven former teen idols will be playing heightened versions of themselves in the brand-new serialized drama - with a healthy dose of irreverence - that is inspired by their real lives and relationships with each other.
The original stars of Beverly Hills, 90210, the groundbreaking teen drama that defined Southern California life, officially return to the network they called home for the entire decade of the 1990s, in this all-new event series the takes the concept of a series reboot to a whole new meta-level.
Spawning generations of imitators, Beverly Hills, 90210 premiered on FOX on October 4, 1990, when it became an instant pop culture sensation and one of the most adored programs in the network's history. Centered on the tony Los Angeles community identified in its title, the show aired for 10 seasons, during which it documented the trials and tribulations of a group of friends from high school to college and into early adulthood, as they navigated a myriad of coming-of-age dramas and complex rivalries, often making real-world headlines by tackling controversial and socially relevant topics.
BH90210 will be produced by CBS Television Studios and Fox Entertainment. Patrick Sean Smith, Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler are executive producers alongside Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering. The series was conceived by Alberghini, Chessler, Spelling and Garth. Smith, Alberghini and Chessler are writers of the series, with Smith serving as the series showrunner.
