According to E! News, a six-episode revitalization of the popular 1990s drama series “Beverly Hills, 90210” is in production and will be returning to Fox. The popular series followed a group of teenage friends through high school, college and adulthood and dealt heavily with romantic entanglements while sporadically touching on more pressing issues.

CBS TV Studios president David Stapf said that Tori Spelling, one of the show’s original stars, introduced the idea of bringing it back. “Tori Spelling, as she is wont to do, comes in and pitches a lot of ideas and is in our offices a lot,” Stapf said during a panel with other CBS executives at the Keshet INTVConference in Jerusalem. “She kicked the idea around of ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to get the whole gang back together?’”

The original series premiered on Fox in 1990 and went on to become one of the most popular shows that decade, airing for ten seasons and 293 episodes before ultimately ending in 2000. The CW rebooted the show for five seasons with a different cast between 2008 and 2013.

However, the show will be more of a renaissance than a reboot, and it will also have a twist. The cast will play “heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama – with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships.”

In an official statement, the series will reunite the actors after “one of them suggests it’s time to get a ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ reboot up and running. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast – whom the whole world watched grow up together – attempts to continue from where they left off?”

The official announcement was on the same day one of the show’s original stars, Luke Perry, suffered a stroke before tragically passing away last week. “He was going to be one of the few who was not going to be in it, because he was committed to ‘Riverdale,’” Stapf said, adding that Perry would be honored in the show’s return; however, “how we deal with that moving forward is yet to be determined. That’s something the writers are going to have to figure out.”

But he isn’t the only former star to recently pass; 84-year-old Jed Allan passed away in Palm Desert on Saturday.

The current title for the project is labeled “90210” and is expected to air sometime in the summer of 2019.
