Who says you can't go 9021-home again?
The West Bev High gang is officially back together, with Beverly Hills, 90210 stars Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Tori Spelling, Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris all reuniting for BH90210, premiering tonight on Fox.
In the six-episode revival of sorts, the stars of TV's most iconic teen soap will play fictionalized versions of themselves reuniting to get a reboot of the hit '90s show off the ground, but old rivalries and romances between former friends and frenemies make it anything but easy. And it seems like the show's writers didn't have to dig very deep to find material for the show, as the original BH, 90210's 10-year run provided more than enough inspiration.
Given the mega-fame of the young cast and the popularity Beverly Hills, 90210, the behind-the-scenes drama was worthy of its own show with fist fights going down on set, a bunch of the stars hooking up when cameras weren't rolling, and one of TV's most infamous firings, thanks to Doherty's diva tendencies back in the day.
Plus, one of the cast members lied about their age in order to land a role as a high schooler in America's most famous zip code and Dylan McKay, one of TV's most iconic characters played by the late Luke Perry, was originally only supposed to be in two episodes before legendary producer Aaron Spelling (Tori Spelling's father) stepped in and saved the day.
BH90210 premieres Wednesday, Aug. 7, at 9 p.m. on Fox.
