Time to rejoice, Gen-Xers: Donna Martin and Kelly Taylor — oops, I mean — Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth are headed back to Beverly Hills!
Two decades after wrapping the cultural phenomenon Beverly Hills, 90210, former co-stars Spelling, 44, and Garth, 45, announced they’re in early talks to develop a new project for CBS Television Studios.
At the moment, the details are hush-hush, but rumour has it that the series would feature Spelling and Garth playing exaggerated versions of themselves.
Spelling shared the news of her meeting on CBS’ Burbank lot with her Instagram followers with the hashtags #back2work and #90210vibes.
Although, I have to say, I’m a little disappointed by the notable lack of Luke Perry and Jason Priestley (were you Team Dylan or Team Brandon?). But there’s still hope considering this latest reboot is still in the early stages of development. A girl can dream, right?
Created by Darren Star and executive produced by Aaron Spelling, the original Beverly Hills, 90210 ran for 10 seasons and followed the emotional highs and lows of a group of friends growing up wealthy in everyone’s favourite zip code. Spelling and Garth co-starred alongside Jason Priestley, Luke Perry, Brian Austin Green, Shannon Doherty and Ian Ziering.
The show was later rebooted on the CW (less successfully) as 90210 from 2008 to 2013 with an all-new cast.
Despite news of rifts among certain cast members, Spelling and Garth remained close friends and later reunited with the ABC Family comedy, Mystery Girls.
