Beverly Hills, 90210 - Reboot With Original Cast Being Shopped *Updated*



Deal Being Closed In; Tori Spelling Shares Details

Update: Deadline, with their abundance of knowledge, has shared that of the possible homes for this reunion series, FOX is eyeing the project as well as CBS and CBS All Access.

I hear Fox has been particularly passionate about the project from CBS TV Studios, with ABC and CBS TV Studios siblings CBS and CBS All Access also said to be among the outlets bidding on the series. I hear a deal is expected soon.


Tori Spelling also shared some details to E! Online about the project which I'm sharing here as Deadline have. Spelling says she's unsure of when the show will come into fruition but expects it to be within 2019. She also mentions that Luke Perry, who is a regular on The CW's Riverdale will guest star whenever he has the time.

"It's not technically a reboot, because I feel like everyone has seen the reboot. We don't want to be the last ones like doing the reboot thing, and no one wants to see like old versions of ourselves, but they do want to see us playing our characters, so what we're doing is the entire cast is playing heightened versions of themselves," Spelling explained to Carissa Culiner and Morgan Stewart

"Think Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes, in an hour long show, and we're all playing heightened versions, so it could be fictional, it could be non-fictional, people will have to guess," she continued. "And then we will have pop-ins, because we're behind the scenes trying to do the reboot."


Spelling also shared some small snippets with Access Live, "The fans will be pleasantly surprised because we will intercut that with scenes from the show." Watch the full video below.





Reboot With Original Cast Being Shopped

Deadline has revealed that teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210 is eyeing a reboot with original cast members Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green, and Gabrielle Carteris set to return.

The project is currently being pitched to broadcast and streaming networks with multiple buyers interested per Deadline.

The project hails from CBS TV Studios with The CW's 90210 reboot writers Mike Chessler and Chris Alberghini plus Ghen Maynard.

Spelling first let slip in March that a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot was in very early stages of development at CBS TV Studios.

Deadline notes the scripted project is not a traditional reboot.
