Tori Spelling is giving fans of ‘90210’ hope the show may go on despite FOX cancelling the reboot after one season.
The network released a statement announcing they are not bringing “BH90210” back. They said, “ “We are so proud to have reunited in a very special summer event one of the network’s legacy series and casts with 90210 fans across the country. Profound thanks to and respect for Brian [Austin Green], Gabrielle [Carteris], Ian [Ziering], Jason [Priestley], Jennie [Garth], Shannen [Doherty] and Tori [Spelling], who, along with the entire crew and everyone at Fox and CBS Television Studios, poured their hearts and souls into this truly inventive and nostalgic revival.”
Following the news both Tori and her costar, Brian Austin Green took to social media They appeared to believe the reboot could continue on at another network or streaming service.
Brian Austin Green posted a photo of the Peach Pit captioned, “When Fox picked up the show it was always billed as a summer event. Thanks to Fox we did 306 episodes of 90210 (9021bro can fact check that number) if the show gets picked up somewhere else we will talk about making more but thank you to all the fans that kept the dream alive and supported us for so long :)))”
Tori said, “3 things happened this past summer…
#bh90210 was the highest rated show of the summer .
Our #bh90210 cast proved that after 20 years, you indeed CAN go home again…
I didn’t cram myself (with 3 pairs of spanx! ) into a red dress I wore on tv when I was 18 years old for nothin…
Sometimes home isn’t where you ARE but who you are WITH. Together, our #bh90210 family can do anything. We’ve proved that to each other and our loyal fans. We ARE better together.
Our show is so meta that all the reality out there just helps us continue to evolve and gives us GREAT new storylines! The gift that keeps on giving. We aim to keep audiences guessing what will happen next. So stay tuned as our journey unfolds… #bh90210 #onthemove #myhighschooldressfits #miraclesdohappen”
