PITTSBURGH -- They're getting the band back together in SoCal.
“BH90210” - the six-episode event series starring “Beverly Hills, 90210” original cast members - will premiere on Wednesday, Aug. 7 on FOX 53.
Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling, the original stars of the groundbreaking teen drama that defined Southern California life, returns to the network they called home for the entire decade of the 1990s, in this all-new event series that takes the concept of a series reboot to a whole new level.
Watch the series’ first teaser promo here:
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 inspired by their real lives and relationships with each other.
Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Shannen, 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.
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?
A new chapter begins Aug. 7 on FOX 53.
