Shannen Dohery is returning. Jennie Garth is on board. Tori Spelling will likely show up for an episode or two.

But we're extra excited to hear that Joe E. Tata - who portrayed Peach Pit owner Nat on the original series - - has told the Associated Press that he just wrapped up shooting the 90210 pilot, which airs September 2.

Tata said he's still uncertain if he'll return to the show permanently.

"The coin's in the air for me. I guess it comes under the heading of magic test: Let's see if the audience still remembers me."

Come on, of course we remeber you, Joe! We also remember the Peach Pit, which has undergone renovations for 90210 and will still be used as a primary hangout for the new cast of characters.
