Shannen Doherty Joins Cast Of ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ Reboot – Perez Hilton
Brenda Walsh is heading back to Beverly Hills!
On Friday, it was announced that Shannen Doherty is joining the cast of the much-anticipated Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot.
Slated to air this summer, the six-episode event series also stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling, all reprising their iconic characters.
Following Mr. Perry’s tragic passing, Brian Austin Green revealed that many of the cast members had been struggling with grief, but reunited in his memory:
“People I haven’t seen in like, 18 years at least. It was very mixed emotions, because you were happy to everybody and you felt like, ‘God, it’s been too long,’ and it was great, but what a horrible reason to have to see everybody again. It was definitely interesting.”
The 45-year-old continued:
“I even texted him after he had passed, knowing obviously that he can’t text me back, but on some level hoping that he would text me back or that he was out there somewhere. And I know he is. I know he’s looking down and I know he’s smiling. Knowing Luke, he is not one that wants us to mourn him. He wants us to celebrate him.”
And they do have plans to celebrate his memory on the much awaited show. At an INTV conference in Jerusalem, CBS TV Studios president David Stapf revealed that the upcoming revival will find a way to honor his memory:
“[H]ow we deal with [Perry’s death] moving forward is yet to be determined. That’s something the writers are going to have to figure out.”
We’re very excited to have Shannen back in the 90210!
