Watch New Beverly Hills 90210 Revival Trailer
Original stars Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris and Brian Austin Green will return, although they won’t be reprising their original roles on the show.
The new series will take a meta route, seeing the actors star as themselves, as they come together to discuss the possibility of doing a Beverly Hills 90210 reboot.
“The prospects of a bunch of fictionalized versions of ourselves trying to get this 90210 reboot off the ground, we’re telling this is in a very comical way,” Priestley told Entertainment Weekly. “I think the opportunity to satirize the situation is something we all found very appealing.” (via)
The show will also pay tribute to former cast member Luke Perry, who passed away in February after suffering a stroke.
BH90210 will premiere on 7 August in the US at 9pm ET on Fox.
