I’m simply in a state of confusion. It looks like it’s going to be Gossip Girl on the West Coast. But isn’t Gossip Girl just The O.C. on the East Coast? And since The O.C. already existed, wouldn’t that make this the poor man’s O.C.? But nobody on 90210 could possibly be as bad as an actress as Mischa Barton, right?
Of the new series set to premiere on The CW, 90210, the big Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff is definitely getting the most hype. The spinoff will bring us back to West Beverly High where a new family, The Mills will go through a similar adjustment process that the Walsh family did back in the 90’s.
CW just announced that they are casting Rob Estes as the dad in the new 90210 spinoff. That is enough to make me tune in – whatever happened to Silk Stalkings? I loved him in that show. You know what is sad? When a guy you used to drool over as a teenager is cast as the “dad” on a new series that is a spinoff of a show that you used to watch as a teenager.
Well it looks like Kelly Taylor’s name is being added to the character list for the CW’s much anticipated 90210 spinoff. There were rumors that Jennie Garth, who played Taylor in the original 90210 series might be signing on for the spinoff but nothing’s been certain until now.
Things are looking very good for Reaper right about now! The CW series has been considered “on the bubble” and many feared that the CW would cancelled it but now rumor has it that Reaper could be getting a second season. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for another CW series.
The frenzy of casting a new series is in full swing for CW’s 90210 spinoff. Two more additions to the cast were announced this afternoon, and we've got the story. Jessica Walter, better known as Lucille Bluth of Arrested Development fame, has signed on to be the drunken grandmother.
Lori Loughlin, AKA “Aunt Becky,” has snagged a role on 90210. Now I know that sentence may be confusing, but don’t worry. You have not, in fact, traveled back to 1991. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Loughlin is joining the cast of the Rob Thomas Beverly Hills: 90210 remake as “the mom.” Loughlin will be playing Celia Mills.
If she were to take the role, however, Duff would basically be playing the equivalent of the Brenda Walsh character inhabited by Shannon Doherty oh so many moons ago. This time around, the character is named Annie Mills. Like Walsh, she’s active in Beverly Hills High’s theater department, but unlike Brenda, her music of choice is Emo.
There’s a rumor going around that after backing out of a deal she had with CBS for a new pilot, Jennie Garth might be jumping on board with the Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff that’s being developed for The CW network. Apparently though, this is not the case.
The upcoming 90210 spinoff just became a little less awesome. Rob Thomas, creator of the dearly (oh so dearly) departed Veronica Mars, has announced that he is stepping down as show runner of the new series. Thomas, who in addition to the 90210 pilot on The CW, has two other pilots in development at ABC, is citing a time crunch as the reason for his departure.
With the success of The CW's Gossip Girl, it's no real surprise that the network is working on another primetime teen soap opera. New details about the Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off (or rip-off - however you want to look at it) have emerged.
Say the numbers “90210” and you immediately think of Aaron Spelling’s popular 1990s teen soap, Beverly Hills, 90210, which aired on Fox from 1990-2000. Now the CW and CBS Paramount Network TV are developing a fast-track spinoff of the show, with Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas in talks to write the project. How cool is that?! I love Veronica Mars, and hope this show has the same edgy feel. I might actually watch it.
