BH90210 just ended its first season, but will there be a second? Recently, stars Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the future of the FOX TV show.
The reunion series follows the stars of the original Beverly Hills 90210 as they “play highly fictionalized versions of themselves reuniting to reboot the original series.” The cast includes Spelling, Garth, Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, and Brian Austin Green.
WARNING: BH90210 FINALE SPOILERS AHEAD!
We definitely wanted to keep it very meta, as the whole show has been. In our minds, writing the last episode was foreshadowing another season. Going forward, the second season would be more laser-focused on the reboot. So the fans would get a much bigger percentage of us playing ourselves and our characters from the original 90210 as we would dive into what the reboot would look like.”
Later, Spelling also teased a possible casting change-up for season two:
We’ll have to keep who it is a mystery. Maybe they’ll all be back, who knows? Here’s the thing, I feel like we left it as a cliffhanger. We said the stalker set the fires, but we never admitted to the stalker that they caught at the red dress doing the mutilated dolls or any of the other creepy things that were happening to them. So that’s open-ended.”
And what about Jennie and Jason? Will they get together? Garth said:
[Penny] was really great to work with and we were all sad to see him go, and it happened really quickly. But we realized it was episode 6 and we need to leave the lane open for Brandon and Kelly, potentially, if we go forward. Doing the hotel scene with Jason was hilarious. We would just look at each other and say, “Okay, let’s do this!” It was fun, for sure.”
What do you think? Have you seen BH90210? Would you watch a second season?
