Shannen Doherty to Reprise Role in Fox’s ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ Revival



Deadline reported Shannen Doherty is joining the cast of BH90210.

BH90210 is a six-episode series which is a event series and revival of Beverly Hills, 90210.

The new series will follow the original cast which consist of Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling. 

Doherty will also executive produce; her character played Brenda Walsh in the original series. 

The new 90210 is described as a serialized drama – with a dose of irreverence — inspired by the septet’s real lives and relationships. Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Shannen, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori — who will play heightened versions of themselves — 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?
