Looks like it’s officially happening! FOX announced today that they are officially doing a special 6-episode “90210” reboot this summer, that will reunite cast members Jason Priestly, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling.
What’s different though is that it technically won’t be set in the “90210” world — the cast will play heightened versions of themselves that get together to try and make a reboot work. Very meta!
In the new series, 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?
The show will launch this Summer, but no official date has been set yet.
