Fox's six-episode revival is titled BH90210
The highly anticipated Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot finally has a premiere date
Fox has announced that six-episode revival of the iconic 1990s hit, titled BH90210, will premiere Aug. 7.
The network also dropped a new teaser trailer. While it doesn’t give much insight into the upcoming special, it shows the series original stars reunite for the first time.
“The gang returns home,” the teaser states.
The original cast members have returned to play a “heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama – with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships.”
According to the network, the show follows the stars as they reunite for the first time in two decades in order attempt to get a 90210 reboot going.
“What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast – whom the whole world watched grow up together – attempts to continue from where they left off?” says Fox.
Before Fox officially announced the revival, Spelling accidentally confirmed the news during an on-air interview.
“We were having coffee in between meetings with networks,” she explained about a recent paparazzi photo of the cast. “It’s confirmed. We’re doing a new 90210.”
She later opened up to PEOPLE about getting the chance to work with her former costars again.
“We’re all really excited to get back to work with each other every day,” said Spelling, 45. “We’ve come full circle and it feels really great. This is the ultimate high school reunion and we’re going to be back together every day and I’m so excited.”
The original series ran for 10 seasons between 1990 and 2000. It starred Spelling, Garth, Priestley, Doherty and Luke Perry (who died March 4 of a massive stroke but had not signed onto the reboot) as students at the posh West Beverly Hills High School in Los Angeles.
The CW famously rebooted it in 2008 under the title 90210, with Spelling, Garth and Doherty reprising their roles at various points throughout the show. It ran for five seasons until 2013.
