We’ve partnered with
FOX to share everything you need to know about BH90210, the highly anticipated new six-episode series. Don't miss the premiere on FOX on August 7 at 9 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. CT!
It's been 19 years since
Beverly Hills, 90210 left the air, and some of us have mourned ever since. But now, at long last, BH90210 is reuniting Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, and Ian Ziering on the small screen — only this time they're playing themselves! You heard that right. This totally meta plot follows the former teen idols playing heightened versions of themselves coming together for a reunion.
While the new show is right around the corner, the details are shrouded in secrecy. We can't help but speculate about all the can't-miss moments the new show has to offer. Here are nine reasons we're freaking out about
BH90210. Be sure to catch the premiere on FOX on August 7 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT to see the West Beverly Hills High gang together again!
What Happened to the Characters Since They Left Us?
How much in your life has changed in 19 years? Probably a whole lot. Back in 2000, when the original series ended, Donna and David got married, Kelly started a PR company and got back together with Dylan, Brandon became a journalist and traveled the world, Brenda toured abroad as an actress, Steve started a newspaper company with his wife, and Andrea has a baby but was noticeably missing a
wedding ring. So where are they now? What came of their relationships? What are their careers? Have they matured? Which leads us to . . .

The Return of Brenda
Brenda Walsh/Shannen Doherty left after season four — way back in 1994 — in a dramatic fashion both on screen and off. We'd be lying if we said we didn't miss Brenda's presence on the show. It was a wild ride watching the Minnesota transplant fit in amongst her fabulous blonde peers, seeing her constantly fall in love with and break up with Dylan, laughing at her hilarious fake French accent when dating Rick in Paris, learning from the time she discovered a lump in her breast, and relating every time she argued with her parents. We can't wait to witness her triumphant return.

How the Loss of Luke Perry Will Affect the Cast
Dylan McKay: the man, the myth, the eyebrow scar. Many of us pined for both Luke Perry and Dylan — it's always hard to separate the two. We felt heartbroken every time Dylan screwed up or got dumped, swooned every time he waxed poetic, and were at a complete loss for words when separately both his on-screen fiancé Toni Marchette and father were savagely killed off . . . and then his dad turned out to be alive?!?! Things will not be the same with Dylan or Luke.

The Similarities and Differences Between the Actors and Their Characters
Andrea Zuckerman was the responsible valedictorian and Brandon Walsh was a loyal friend with frequently questionable taste in women (Emily Valentine, anyone?). But we never really knew much about the actors themselves. Turns out Gabrielle Carteris became the vice president of the Screen Actors' Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, while Canadian actor Jason Priestly became an American citizen, survived a bad accident while race car driving, married a makeup artist, and had kids. We wonder if
BH90210 will depict them more like their characters, themselves, or somewhere in between — and we're super curious if we'll get a true glimpse into their personal lives.

The Chemistry Between Actors
On screen, the gang believably took on the roles of first loves, besties, and even frenemies (tbh, part of us thinks that deep down Brenda never got over Kelly and Dylan's relationship). What will their chemistry be like all these years later? Will Donna and David still have sparks?

The 2019 Update
Where do these West Beverly Hills High grads fit in now amongst a world of influencers and social media? Was David Silver able to navigate the dramatic changes in the music industry? Is Steve still driving the hottest sports cars? Signs point to yes, but we'll have to wait until August 7 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT when the first episode premieres on FOX to find out.
6 / 9
Let's be honest: the trendy outfits, hot swimsuits, and outrageous prom dresses were as important as any character on the original show. Will Kelly Taylor and Donna Martin rock the same '90s fashion trends from their high school years that are back in style again? How have their growing success and bank accounts affected their adult wardrobes?
7 / 9
The Walsh House
Home to family members, friends, and partners alike, Casa Walsh remained a central gathering place after Jim and Cindy Walsh left town. Is the mission-style house still there? Do any characters still live there? Oh, and do they need a new roommate? Asking for a friend.

The Whole Gang Is Finally Back Together
Just like a nostalgic meal served up by Nat and Laverne (please tell us you remember Laverne) at the Peach Pit, there's something so comforting and satisfying about seeing this crew reunited. No matter what happens, the curious "what if . . ." scenarios running through our heads will finally be answered. Don't miss the premiere on FOX on August 7 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT!
