Deadline is reporting that it’s once again time to feed a fed horse because there is yet another revival of a once-popular show coming back to television. But this is sort of a Groundhog Day of reboots because you’ve seen this rebooted once before.
Like Queer As Folk, Sister Act, Pirates of the Caribbean, Murphy Brown, The Twilight Zone and Designing Women before it, Beverly Hills, 90210 may be making a comeback. Well another one. We already saw it come back in the form of The CW’s melodramatic piece of teen garbage, 90210 which lasted from 2008 to 2013, but that wasn’t enough rich Southern Californian caucasian antics for us hungry for rich Southern Californian caucasian antics.
While the previous revival did feature some originals like Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty and Tori Spelling, this newer reboot will feature so much more of the old gang. I’m talking Jason Priestley, I’m talking Shark-Daddy Ian Ziering, we got Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris. It’s like the 10-year reunion you never asked to go to. Like that The Hills reunion except these fictional people are way better than those real ones. (Note from Michael: No Brenda, no care.)
Jennie, Tori, Jason, Ian and BAG were all seen getting coffee while taking a break from pitching the revival to networks:

While the gang may mostly be here, the show will not be “a traditional reboot.” I hope that means it’s going to be Beverly Hills, 90201: Apocalypse where the old teens from West Beverly Hills High are grown adults in a post-nuclear war hellscape, fighting demons and zombies and over-powered mega-insects which have overrun the once safe planet. Or something; I mean come on, keep me interested.
The show is being pitched to “broadcast and streaming networks” and there are “multiple buyers interested.”
But I can’t handle any more reboots and revivals. Enough already. The only reboot I actually want to see is a new television Hercules where Chris Hemsworth takes up Kevin Sorbo‘s role and is running around shirtless fighting demons, but it’s also a Xena crossover and he has a male friend/lover named Gabriel. Okay, damn, I just came up with a million dollar idea! Trademarked! Trademarked!
