Why didn’t BH90210 work out? Recently, FOX chief Michael Thorn spoke with TVLine about the TV show’s cancellation.
The Beverly Hills 90210 reunion series followed the original cast as they “play highly fictionalized versions of themselves reuniting to reboot the original series.” Returning stars included Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling.
To sustain something that meta and heightened in the long-term is incredibly hard. We always kind of envisioned it as an event… So we felt like to do it as a short-term event where you could just catch up with these actors that you love and do something that was wildly different was a great way to honor the legacy of the show.”
Additionally, ratings for BH90210 were not great. Overall, the series averaged a .89 rating in the 18-49 and 2.505 million viewers.
