Shannen Doherty in Talks to Join New 90210

90210 Revives Brenda Walsh?

There's a lot of chatter today about this Entertainment Weekly item that Shannen Doherty is in talks to join the new 90210, reprising her role as Brenda Walsh and theoretically joining Jennie Garth as the second original cast member to appear in the show's new generation.

The deal is far from done: Doherty has reportedly told the show's producers that she's interested, but 1) she wants to know what the story is first, and 2) she wants more money. There's also the little issue that she and Garth weren't exactly BFF back in the day, but Garth told Michael Ausiello that "A lot of time has passed, and I'm a big girl. I'd have no problem with her coming on the show." But it's interesting to contemplate: How would 90210 work Brenda into the story? And would you want to see it?

Also, is anyone else starting to think that all this focus on the old 90210 is the wrong tactic for promoting the new show? They've got Garth. They've got Jason Priestly directing a few episodes. They might have Doherty. They even have the Peach Pit. So what's going to make this 90210 different or worth watching? Will it all just feel like a rehash of the original, but with older cast members at (let's face it) worse times in their careers? I hope we get some signs of the new show's personality soon.

i think that it would be really cool to have her on the show. there's a lot that she could do since she hasn't been on the show for so long and we just don't know what she had been up to aside from moving to london. i hope that it works out - and to be honest, it DOES make me want to watch the show now when it comes on air.

I need to watch 90210, I've only seen a few of the later episodes here and there. It seems like a show I could really get into. Michael Ausiello must be thrilled that he got to break this news because it's all over the internet today! I've already seen three other websites report on this.

I can care less if she is on or not! Actually I can care less about the show too, but you will prob find me in front of the tv watching it for the first couple episodes.

Can Brenda Walsh please not be so bitchy and annoying this time? I'd really appreciate it.
