Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling are all slated to appear in the six-episode run, but fans expecting a straight follow-up of the show, which ended in 2000, may be disappointed as it isn’t quite a reboot – the series will feature the stars as versions of themselves, revisiting their beloved TV characters.
“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,” a statement from bosses at Fox, the show’s network, reads.

“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?”
Ziering posted an Instagram photo of himself laying a smooch on Perry’s cheek and wrote, “No words can express what my heart feels hearing today’s shocking news. Let us all say a prayer for his speedy recovery.”
Shannen Doherty, whose character Brenda Walsh dated Perry’s and who is also not taking part in the reboot, shared an iconic photo of Brenda and Dylan on prom night. “My friend. Holding you tight and giving you my strength. You got this,” wrote the American actress, who has recently come through a battle with breast cancer.
