Beverly Hills, 90210 Reboot: Who's Not Returning?

at .  Updated at . Comments

Viewers may soon be returning to 90210, but before you get too excited, there are some major caveats to this new take on the 1990s Fox soap. 

One of the caveats is that Shannen Doherty may not be part of the project in any capacity. 

Tori Spelling Smiles

Tori Spelling appeared on Access Live and fielded questions about the series, and that's when she broke her silence.

There is no status right now but… we would love to have her,” Spelling offered which sure makes it sound like Doherty has A) not been approached or B) not ready to commit to the project.

If there is any skepticism from Doherty's camp, then it's warranted. This new series is not a straight-up revival with some of the original cast members. 

Instead, it features the actors as heightened versions of themselves. They're desperate to get a reboot of the original series off the ground. 

Shannen Doherty Attends Event

It all sounds pretty bizarre, especially when you consider that The CW's attempt at a reboot was not as well received as they probably hoped. 

Granted, that show did break ratings for the network when it premiered. It was likely down to the curiosity factor more than anything. 

This new edition taking on the mockumentary approach could work in theory, but viewers would need to lay eyes on it first.

Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green, and Gabrielle Carteris are already signed on to appear.

Luke Perry is currently a regular on The CW's Riverdale, but he will “do as many [episodes] as he can do.”

That's a positive, we guess, but adding Doherty to the cast would propel this would-be series to something that fans could actually be excited about.

Spelling confirmed that no network is currently attached to be the home of the series, but we should be getting word very soon about where it's going to end up.
