If you hadn’t heard, “Beverly Hills, 90210” is getting a reboot on Fox this summer. Of course, we’ve all been curious to see what it might look like to have our favorite ’90s gang back together. Lucky for us, several cast members took to Instagram to share behind-the-scenes photos of the first reunion of the cast.
“Working hard! Can’t wait to show you what we’ve been up to!” wrote Gabrielle Carteris in the caption of her Instagram post, which featured a photo of Ian Ziering, Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling and Brian Austin Green sitting around a table surrounded by scripts.
Somehow, they manage to look exactly the same, yet simultaneously all grown up.
Jennie Garth also posted a photo of a script for the new show, which is reportedly titled “BH 90210.”
While the teaser trailer for the show doesn’t give away any details about the reboot’s plot, here’s what we know so far. According to a statement put out by Fox, the show’s cast members will be playing themselves, as well as their original characters, in a sort of mockumentary-style drama:
“Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ reboot up and running. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. 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?”
Sadly, the only original cast member who won’t be joining the new show is Luke Perry, who passed away at the age of 52 this past March. And if you noticed that Shannen Doherty’s name wasn’t included up above either, it’s because she didn’t officially join the show until April. Some believe that Perry’s death may have influenced her to take part in the reboot.
According to an US Weekly source, “Luke was Shannen’s favorite in the cast…She may participate now if they somehow pay homage to him.”
Meanwhile, while the show may be set in a certain Los Angeles zip code, the new series will reportedly film in Vancouver. So if you find yourself in the Vancouver area this summer, you may have a shot at seeing Kelly, Brandon, Donna, Brenda, Steve and the rest of the gang all back together!
