Back to '90210!'
It was the identity of a generation -- and now the show that transcended television and became a cultural icon is set to return! "Extra" is talking to the new kids of "90210" -- and former star Jennie Garth, who told "Extra" that she's set to reprise her role as the BH blonde. "I am coming back as Kelly Taylor," said Garth, "I can't even believe it."
The new show is generating so much buzz that when Tori Spelling came to the "Extra" set, she was followed by a pack of paparazzi after word broke she might be joining the cast! Will there be a return of level-headed Donna Martin? "I've been in talks with them," said Spelling, "they have approached me and so I'm hoping it works out."
The new cast also made a recent red carpet introduction! Actors Shenae Grimes and Tristan Wilds will be Brenda and Brandon -- with an edge. The show also has everyone from the alcoholic former movie star to mommie dearest -- played by "Full House" alum Lori Loughlin.
"90210" wouldn't be complete without the bad girl, played by AnnaLynne McCord, who described her role as, "the spoiled little rich girl... she knows how to get her way." McCord may want to watch her back though -- the poster child for wild ways Shannen Doherty is back!
"I'm a big girl -- I can handle anything," said Garth of her former rival's return. Get set as the claws of a whole new generation come out -- Tuesday nights this fall on the CW!
