According to Deadline, teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210 will be getting another revival at CBS Television Studios and will include the return of many former cast members. No word has been released yet on whether the story line will be adapted for a more modern audience.
The initial premise, was based on the adjustment and culture shock twins, Brandon (Priestley) and Brenda Walsh (Doherty), experienced when their family moves from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Beverly Hills.
In addition to chronicling the main characters’ ups and downs in their close relationships, the show also addressed topical issues of the time such as sex, rape culture, homophobia, substance abuse, domestic violence, racism, teen pregnancy, and AIDS.
Actors Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, and Gabrielle Carteris are rumored to be returning to CBS’ newly produced remake. Shannen Doherty and Luke Perry also starred in the original series, but have not been confirmed as being apart of the new adaptation just yet.
CBS Television Studios reportedly has had early interest from multiple outlets, although ultimately the production studio has declined to comment on any of the reboot’s further developments.
The original series, created by Darren Star and produced by Aaron Spelling, became a pop culture sensation and aired from 1990 to 2000 on Fox. The CW revived the series for an additional five seasons with a new cast from 2008-2013.
This version, saw several original cast members make appearances as well, such as Garth, Doherty, and Spelling. Later, the long-running spinoff Melrose Place was produced, as well as the short-lived Models Inc.
