Tori Spelling is ready to get back to her roots.

On Wednesday, the actress opened up to PEOPLE about the highly-anticipated Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot.

“We’re all really excited to get back to work with each other every day,” Spelling, 45, told PEOPLE at a private boxing/sparring class hosted by her husband Dean McDermott on Wednesday.

“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.”

Spelling, who starred in the original ’90s series, accidentally confirmed the news on Access last week when she said, “did I just confirm something that wasn’t known?”

“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 explained that the reboot “is the OG crew back together and we’re playing heightened versions of ourselves. The fans will be pleasantly surprised, though, because we will intercut that with scenes from the show. So it’ll be a whole ensemble cast playing a heightened version of themselves. Almost everybody.”


While the majority of the cast will be returning for the revival, Luke Perry (Dylan McKay) “will do as many [episodes] as he can do,” according to Spelling, as he currently stars on Riverdale.

As for Shannen Doherty, who played Brenda Walsh, the cast “would love to have her on,” said Spelling, though there “is no status right now. But if she’s watching, we would love to have you do it.”

In December, rumors of a possible reboot first began to swirl when original cast members Spelling, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Jason Priestley and Brian Austin Green were snapped grabbing coffee together.

The original series ran for 10 seasons between 1990 and 2000. It starred Spelling, Garth, Priestley, Doherty and Perry 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.

The reboot is reportedly in the works at CBS Television Studios.
