By now you probably already know that Kelly, Donna, David, Andrea and Brandon are making a return to the small screen in the Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot. But what about Brenda?
While the other half of the Walsh sib set was a holdout, actress Shannen Doherty finally announced that she will join the rest of the original cast for the new series. Doherty recently posted a pic of the ’90s gang on Instagram along with the caption, “Yes it’s official.”
If you’re wondering what the all-new 90210 will look like, the official description is, “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?”
Following Doherty’s IG announcement, cast-mate Tori Spelling posted her own throw-back pic (a decades’ old publicity photo of the original four females of 90210), adding, “It’s OFFICIAL…ALL the OG 90210 girls will be together again!”
Sadly, the new BH90210 will air without one notable cast member. Known as the cool-kid/heartthrob of West Beverly High, Dylan McKay, actor Luke Perry tragically died following a stroke last March. Perry’s former cast-mates, and current BH90210 stars, took to social media with an outpouring of love for the actor. Doherty posted on Instagram:

Yesterday morning I got a phone call that devastated me. I’m struggling with this loss and am having a hard time with my thoughts. But, my heart goes out to his family and friends who were blessed by his light in their (and mine) lives. Processing this is impossible right now.
The reboot, which is scheduled for a summer premiere, is a limited six-episode series.
