Fox's upcoming Beverly Hills, 90210 revival is adding a new cast member.
The series, which is currently called BH90210, has added Power veteran La La Anthony to the cast of the six-episode summer drama, reports Deadline.
Anthony is on board as Shay, a hip-hop/pop artist. She is also the wife of Brian Austin Green's character.
Shay is the "breadwinner of the family," which probably explains why the series focuses on the cast members as they try to get a revival off the ground.
"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," reads the official logline.
"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?”
Original cast members Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, Shannen Doherty, and Tori Spelling are all signed on to appear.
“Beverly Hills, 90210 left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation,” said Fox entertainment president Michael Thorn in a statement when the series was ordered earlier this year.
“Its powerful legacy is an important part of our network’s DNA — bold stories not told anywhere else and bigger-than-life-characters — and we’re honored to bring back the beloved original cast members for 90210.”
Despite only being in the works for a few months, it was recently revealed that the showrunner of the meta-revival, Patrick Sean Smith has departed.
Paul Sciarotta has been drafted in to replace him.
