Jennie Garth

Just a quick 9-0 update: Despite the buzz flying around today that Jennie Garth could be resurrecting her role on the new Beverly Hills, 90210 remake, sources inside the CW network tell me that Garth is not signed on to the project.

As we reported a couple of weeks back, producer Rob Thomas had his heart set on making one Miss Kelly Taylor part of the new project, most likely as the new fashion-design teacher at Beverly Hills High. However, as R.T. confirmed to us this week, he's also letting the CW find new writers to take a second pass at the  90210 pilot script (though he will still be very much involved in the series). And CW sources tell me Garth will not be "seriously approached" about being cast on the series until the new script is in order and the concept is finalized.

Speculation of Garth's casting grew today when it was revealed she has backed out of a pilot for next season called My Best Friend's Girl.

So her dance card is free. However, show insiders say they haven't yet received any word of whether resurrecting her iconic role is something Jennie will want to do. So hang tight and say your Kelly Taylor prayers!
