Shannen Doherty returns, '90210' gets its 'Freak' on
Our very own Michael Ausiello broke the news originally, but now it’s official: The bitch is back. And she has some familiar friends.
The CW’s much-hyped 90210 reinvention braved the Hilton at the ballroom on their TCA day and made some substantial announcements. First of all, the big news is that Shannen Doherty will indeed be returning to 90210 as Brenda Walsh. And we will be seeing a return of Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling.
Executive Producers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (Freaks and Geeks) also revealed that the quirky humor that made their cult hit so popular will find it’s way into 90210. We’ll also be seeing a more diverse Beverly Hills than in the original series.
They also said that viewers will discover if there is indeed a connection between Jessica Stroup’s character Silver and David Silver (Brian Austin Green) during the premiere episode. Let’s just hope she doesn’t share his penchant for painful white boy rapping.
Star Anna Lynne McCord, who’s playing mean girl Naomi on 90210, also revealed that she might still pop back up as fellow mean girl Eden on FX’s Nip/Tuck.
