Shannen Doherty Joins 'Beverly Hills, 90210' Reunion Series
The Beverly Hills, 90210 reunion series just got a dose of Brenda Walsh.
Shannen Doherty has joined BH90210, Fox's six-episode summer series in which the 90210 cast will play heightened versions of themselves. Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling are already attached to star in the project.
Spelling celebrated Doherty's addition on Instagram on Friday. "It’s OFFICIAL...ALL the OG 90210 girls will be together again! So exited to go on this journey with you @jenniegarth @theshando @gabriellecarteris @90210onfox," she wrote alongside throwback photos of the group. "#girlpower #fbf #comingthissummer #90210 #beverlyhills."
In a February interview with ET, Spelling explained how the new Fox series came to life.
"Jennie Garth and I were like, 'What would be something fun?' and so we decided what would it be like if an entire ensemble cast played themselves," she shared. "There's been shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, episodes where its heightened versions of people playing themselves. This is the first time an entire cast will be playing heightened versions, so people would be going, 'What's fictional, what's not fictional?'"
"[It will be a] blend about doing the behind the scenes of a reboot, so don't worry -- all the fans will get to see scenes within scenes so they won't be disappointed. They'll see [the characters] Donna and David, but they'll also see [the real people], Tori and Brian and Jennie and everyone else," she added.
Spelling also shared at the time that Doherty's former on-screen love, Luke Perry, who played Dylan McKay on 90210, would try his best to appear on the series in between shooting Riverdale. The actor tragically died in March after suffering a stroke. He was 52.
