Airdate: BH90210

Original cast of 90210 are back for a short run and clever take on reboots and revivals.

Tuesday night’s a bitch again (oh wait that was Melrose) as BH90210 premieres on 10 later this month.

The short-run series sees former Beverly Hills 90210 cast playing heightened versions of themselves, attending a fan convention and mulling the idea of a show revival. It’s a clever spin on the current zeitgeist….

Sadly absent is the late Luke Perry, but his passing is acknowledged.

Brandon, Brenda, Kelly and the gang return for an unmissable reincarnation of one of the most popular dramas on television.

Take a trip down memory lane, as our favourite teen idols (and crushes) play heightened versions of themselves in order to get a reboot of Beverly Hills, 90210 back on the air.

Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, the cast are reunited at a 30th Anniversary fan convention in Las Vegas, leading old flames, feuds and feelings to reignite.

After a rather tumultuous reunion, Tori Spelling has the grand idea to get the band back together in a more permanent capacity for an official reboot. However, not everyone shares her enthusiasm.

Will Shannen Doherty actually speak to the other cast members? Will Tori remember her lines after years of reality TV? Will Brian Austin Green be able to step out of his (more famous) wife’s shadow?

Tuesday, 24 September at 8.30pm on 10.

  1. The ratings haven’t been so hot in the U.S. and have declined considerably since the premiere.

    I don’t know why 10 thought to delay this when they have so little fresh content on the primary channel as it is; and with a revival like this, it would be in their interest to strike while the iron’s hot and before the initial novelty/curiosity wears out.

    The revival sounds a bit like the Seinfeld “reunion” within Curb Your Enthusiasm season 7. I can’t imagine it being quite as self-deprecating though.

  2. Living in 2019, I’ve seen what’s aired so far, and it’s pretty decent. I was never a regular viewer of the original, I was 8 when it started, but did watch ‘90210’ when that came out around 10 years ago, and the Melrose Place reboot.
