90210 Spinoff In The Works

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.

While details are still sketchy -- and no word on which, if any, of the original characters will make an appearance – the CW will likely decide whether to order a pilot by the end of this month, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This would be the series’ second spinoff, the first being Melrose Place, which ran from 1992-1999 on Fox. Maybe the CW is looking to bolster the popularity of Gossip Girl, which has a similar theme of rich teens, only living in Manhattan.

The CW is also developing The Game, spun off from Girlfriends.
