Since her days as troubled Kelly Taylor, Garth has done a lot of TV work, including the sitcom What I Like About You costarring Amanda Bynes, which ended in 2006. She also reprised her role as a more responsible Kelly on the CW sequel series 90210, which ran from 2008 to 2013.

Garth played one of the lead characters on ABC Family's one-season sitcom Mystery Girls alongside her Beverly Hills, 90210 costar Spelling before rejoining her longtime pal on the 2019 Fox reboot series.

After splitting with ex-husband Peter Facinelli, with whom she has three daughters, Garth married Dave Abrams in 2015 and have remained together since, even after a 10-month separation.

Spelling played Kelly's best friend, Donna Martin, who was originally written as a supporting character, but was developed into a main one throughout the series.

Since then, the actress filled her time with a few reality shows — including So Notorious and Tori & Dean: Inn Love — and a 2016 vampire Lifetime movie. In 2019, she reprised the role of Donna for a multi-episode arc on the BH90210 reboot.

Off screen, Spelling is a mother to five children she shares with Dean McDermott, her husband since 2006.

Aside from playing Brandon's fierce twin sister, Brenda Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210as well as the 2019 reboot — Doherty has landed iconic roles on Charmed (1998–2001) and in films like Heathers (1989) and Mallrats (1995).

The actress has been open about her journey with breast cancer since her diagnosis in March of 2015. She announced she was in remission in April 2017 and underwent breast reconstruction surgery in May 2018. "Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment," she said in an Instagram post celebrating the news. In early 2020, she announced she'd been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer.

However, Doherty continued to act living with cancer, as she appeared in a Riverdale tribute episode for her late Beverly Hills, 90210 costar Luke Perry, who died in 2019, and starred in the 2021 film Fortress alongside Bruce Willis and Chad Michael Murray.

She recently announced her divorce from her husband of 11 years, producer Kurt Iswarienko.

Priestly played Doherty's onscreen brother, Brandon Walsh, on Beverly Hills, 90210 and reprised his role in the 2019 reboot series.

The actor, however, has played lead roles on a few TV projects, including the Canadian series Call Me Fitz (2010–2013) and Private Eyes (2016–2021), and has directed a few episodes, too.

The father of two has been married to wife Naomi Lowde since 2005, and has survived two scary incidents, crashing head-on into a wall during a 2002 car race at the Kentucky Speedway and being thrown from a horse on the set of The Code in 2015.

After playing the awkward David Silver on Beverly Hills, 90210, Green went on to film other projects including Dancing with the Stars, a few episodes of The Conners and Last the Night (2022), but most of his excitement comes from his family.

Green has three sons with his ex-wife Megan Fox, and also has a son with ex Vanessa Marcil. In February 2022, he announced he was expecting a child with girlfriend Sharna Burgess; the pair welcomed son Zane on June 28, 2022.

After rising to fame as Kelly Kapowski on NBC's Saved by the Bell from 1989 to 1993, Thiessen joined the teen drama as mean girl Valerie Malone for nine seasons. However, the Beverly Hills, 90210 drama followed Thiessen IRL, as costars Garth and Spelling once dissed her on an episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, referring to her as "that which we don't speak of."

Drama aside, the actress kept herself busy with other TV projects, including White Collar and Alexa & Katie, and reprising her iconic role as Kelly on Peacock's Saved by the Bell reboot.

Thiessen is quite the culinary expert these days. (Try her spiked strawberry lemonade!) Former host of the Cooking Channel's Dinner at Tiffani's, she previously told PEOPLE, "the kitchen is where I spend the most time." Now she works as the host of the MTV's comedy food-related clip show Deliciousness.

The actress has two young children with her husband since 2005, Brady Smith.

After playing the privileged Steve Sanders, if Ziering wasn't chain-sawing through storms of sea creatures alongside Tara Reid in the Sharknado franchise, he was proudly working as a Chippendales dancer. Beverly Hills, 90210 costars Garth and Doherty even paid him a visit to one of his performances in 2013. "Judging by their reactions, I know they had a great time," he previously told PEOPLE about their mini-reunion, which was continued on the 2019 BH90210 reboot.

Married to Playboy model Nikki Schieler from 1997 to 2002, Ziering remarried in 2010, tying the knot with Erin Ludwig, with whom he has two young daughters. However, Ludwig filed for divorce in November 2019.

Carteris is the, ahem, most mature West Beverly High alumna on this list, and she's standing up against ageism in Hollywood. Carteris, who has done a lot of voice acting for video games and cartoons, wrote a guest column for The Hollywood Reporter in which she called for ages to be removed from casting sites like IMDb. "This problem exists for all performers, but most distinctly for women," the former SAG-AFTRA president wrote.

She's been married for three-plus decades and has two daughters.

After his run as the bad boy heartthrob Dylan McKay, Perry had returned to teen TV with a recurring role as Archie's dad, Fred Andrews, on the CW's Archie comics adaptation Riverdale.

The actor died at age 52 on March 4, 2019, five days after suffering a stroke.

"He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends," his rep said in a statement. "The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning."

Prior to his death, he hadn't signed on to the 90210 reboot, though the show did honor him.
