FOX’s Beverly Hills, 90210 reunion series premieres tonight, but will there be a second season? Recently, the stars of BH90210 discussed the possible future of the “event” TV show, Deadline reports.
The reunion series will see Shannen Doherty, Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling “reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a “Beverly Hills, 90210″ reboot up and running.” A reboot of the original series, 90210 ran on The CW from 2008 to 2013.
During this year’s summer TCA press conference, BH90210 star Tori Spelling said she’d love to do more episodes of the FOX “event” series:
We would love to continue to work together. It’s been such an amazing experience. I liken it to high school when you think oh you never get a chance to do a do-over and there are things that you know now that you didn’t know then that you would’ve done differently and we get that opportunity… We have so many stories to tell that this could keep going season after season so we hope it does.”
Later, co-star Shannen Doherty revealed the reunion series will pay tribute to Beverly Hills, 90201 star Luke Perry, who recently passed away:
I knew that the show would get sold and do well with or without me. They didn’t need me. It just wasn’t, at that point, what I wanted to be doing. When Luke passed away things drastically changed for me. I felt like it was a great opportunity to honor him. I’m glad I made that decision because I can sit up here with these people that I respect. We went on this amazing journey where we got to heal through losing somebody who means the world to all of us.”
BH90210 premieres on FOX on tonight, August 7th, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
