Hold up, BH90210, another new cast member is ready to join in the fun!
Vanessa Lachey is the latest addition to the upcoming meta-revival of the 1990-2000 primetime soap.
The actress is on board as Camille, the wife of Jason Priestley. Well, the wife of his character.
BH90210 features the original cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 as heightened versions of themselves.
Sheesh. Everyone is.
Camille is described as a "high-powered publicist" with aspirations of starting a family.
This casting news comes just a day after it was announced that La La Anthony had landed a recurring role on the six-episode limited series as the love interest of Brian Austin Green.
"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.”
