Now that Jason Priestley will return to direct an episode of 90210, he’s looking forward to getting to know the new kids on the block–and reconnecting with some of the original Peach Pit gang.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” Priestley told Ryan Seacrest during a call-in Friday to the talk show host’s KIIS-FM radio show. “It’s going to be a lot of fun to go over there and work with all those guys.”

Priestley went on to say: “I just hope that Jennie’s in the episode that I do, or that Shannen’s there, That’d be fun for me.”

He should know–Garth, who happens to be his neighbor in L.A., tells him she’s “having a really good time over there.”

Priestley, who directed 18 episodes of the original series, will get behind the cameras in January.

While plans don’t include him coming back to reprise the role of heartthrob Brandon Walsh, Priestley says returning to direct the spin-off is a no-brainer: “It kind of fits like a glove, really.”
