TV show description:
The original Beverly Hills, 90210 ran for 10 seasons on FOX, between October 1990 and May 2000. The hit tean drama from Darren Star, Aaron Spelling, and E. Duke Vincent begat a franchise which includes the 2008 reboot which ran for five seasons on The CW; two iterations of Melrose Place (1992 and 2009); and Models Inc. (1994). A comedy-drama, the BH90210 TV show is a spinoff of a different order.
In the new BH90210, Priestley, Doherty, Garth, Ziering, Carteris, Green, and Spelling play highly fictionalized versions of themselves, rather than their respective Beverly Hills, 90210 characters. What’s more, the new series does not acknowledge the existence of The CW reboot.
Developed by Chris Alberghini, Mike Chessler, Spelling, and Garth, BH90210 follows Spelling, Garth, Doherty, Priestly, Ziering, Cateris, and Green, as they decide to revive Beverly Hills, 90210. Rolling out the revival creates more soapy drama than is present in the show-within-the-show. When first loves, old flames, friends, and enemies reunite and try to pick up where they left off, anything can happen.
Episode #6 — The Long Wait
As the cast celebrates the wrap of the pilot, the looming news of a pick-up from FOX keeps them all on edge. Ian realizes his relationship with Anna might be a little too casual, Jennie thinks Wyatt might be in too deep, Tori gets frustrated with Nate, and Shay drops a major bombshell on Brian. Meanwhile, Jason and Camille come to a realization about their marriage, Gabrielle introduces her husband to Christine, and Shannen stresses over the future.
First aired: September 11, 2019.
