TV show description: A hip and trendy update of the original Beverly Hills, 90210 series.
When Annie Wilson (Shenae Grimes) and her adopted brother Dixon (Tristan Wilds) begin attending West Beverly Hills High School, there’s little doubt that they’re not in Kansas anymore. The Wilson family, including dad Harry (Rob Estes) and mom Debbie (Lori Loughlin), has relocated to Beverly Hills to keep an eye on Harry’s mother Tabitha (Jessica Walter), a feisty-but-faded former television star with a history of substance abuse problems.
For Annie and Dixon, the awkwardness of being the new kids is made worse by the fact that their dad has taken a job as the high school principal. The school is one big culture shock for Annie, a sweet and friendly girl with a passion for the theater, and Dixon, an African-American star athlete and scholar.
The siblings have a close relationship, which they’ll need to help them cope with all the new cliques and classmates, including hot, spoiled, rich girl Naomi Clark (AnnaLynne McCord); popular jock Ethan Ward (Dustin Milligan); aspiring techy journalist Navid Shirazi (Michael Steger); and Silver (Jessica Stroup), a rebel who produces and stars in a YouTube-type video series.
Even the faculty seems hip and sophisticated at West Beverly High — like smart and funny teacher Ryan Matthews (Ryan Eggold) and beautiful guidance counselor Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth, from the original 90210 series).
Episode #114 — We All Fall Down
The series finale begins with the stars and executive producers bidding farewell to the famous zip code in a look back at the show’s many unforgettable moments. Then, in a memorable send-off, our favorite group from Beverly Hills will come together again after a traumatic event that makes them realize the importance of their relationships.
First aired: May 13, 2013
