Original Beverly Hills, 90210 star Shannen Doherty is set to join her former co-stars — Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling — for BH90210, FOX’s new series airing this summer.
For four seasons, Doherty starred as Brenda Walsh on the groundbreaking teen drama, but this time when the cast gets back together, it will come with a big twist: the seven former teen idols will be playing heightened versions of themselves in the brand-new serialized drama – with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships with each other.
Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Shannen, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot up and running. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast – whom the whole world watched grow up together – attempts to continue from where they left off?
Doherty, an actor, producer and director, is best known for her roles in various television series, including Beverly Hills, 90210, Charmed, Little House on the Prairie and Our House. Most recently, she was seen reprising one of her most famous film roles, Heather, in the reimagined version of Heathers. In addition to the lead role in the film Heathers, Doherty has starred in movies such as Kevin Smith’s hit comedy Mallrats and Bethany. Doherty’s philanthropic work showcases her love for animals through her work with organizations including California Wildlife Center and Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation. She has also worked with SU2C and The American Cancer Society.
BH90210 will be produced by CBS Television Studios and FOX Entertainment.
Doherty will executive produce alongside Chris Alberghini, Mike Chessler, Patrick Sean Smith, Gabrielle Carteris, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering. The series was conceived by Alberghini, Chessler, Spelling and Garth.
