Last night on the CW’s 90210, the speculation finally came to an end. Who had a son with Kelly (Jennie Garth)?
Sorry Brandon (Jason Priestley) fans, it was Dylan (Luke Perry). The reveal came out in a heated discussion between Kelly and old friend/rival Brenda (Shannon Doherty). You can see a clip of the big reveal below.
According to the 90210 storyline, Dylan knows that he has a son, spent some time with his young family, and then disappeared in typical McKay fashion. So now that we know the identity of little Sam’s papa, will he be stopping by for a visit?
Perry has repeatedly said that he doesn’t have an interest in returning to his old zip code. There are new rumors however that he’s reconsidering now that the paternity of Kelly’s son has been revealed. If he does decide to return, it will likely hinge on scheduling issues and on whether the CW orders additional 90210 episodes. Perry’s filming a movie in Sweden right now and the spin-off currently has an order for only 13 episodes.
Garth hopes that Dylan or her character’s other former beau, Brandon (Jason Priestley), will stop by. She told People, “I would love to work with Luke again. I love him dearly. And I also would love to work with Jason again…I would be nothing but totally happy to have either of them there.”
As far as other original Beverly Hills, 90210 castmembers, Garth is contracted to appear in 11 episodes this season. Doherty has filmed scenes for a total of four episodes (two down, two to go). She’s currently pitching a new show and didn’t want to commit to doing more. She is reportedly open to doing more in the future however. If Dylan returns to Beverly Hills, you can just bet that Brenda will be back as well. Stay tuned!
UPDATE: In a press conference call on 9/18/08, Perry confirmed that he still does not have any interest in appearing on the new 90210 series.
