After previously announcing that they would pick up the Beverly Hills, 90210 revival, Fox has set a start date for the six-episode miniseries: a fitting late-summer premiere on Wednesday, August 7. The new series has the hyper-abbreviated title BH90210, and features seven members of the original cast, including Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, and Tori Spelling. After the original cast announcement, Shannen Doherty announced that she will also be joining the lineup.
Much of the reboot is still under wraps, but it does seem to take unlikely inspiration from Curb Your Enthusiasm season seven, of all places, as the plot will hinge on the meta-concept of the cast “playing heightened versions of themselves” coming together to make a reboot.
This announcement, in a 30-second teaser, comes with our first glimpse of the cast (or the “cast”) all getting together for a table read (or “table read”). If you want to get very emotional over a Luke Perry–less group hug, you can watch the teaser here.
