Jennie Garth Joins 90210 Spinoff -- It's Official!

Jennie Garth, an original cast member of Beverly Hills, 90210, has snagged herself a recurring role (not a regular one) on the CW’s new spinoff of 90210.

Garth, 36, will be reprising her role as Kelly Taylor but will play a guidance counselor at her alma mater, West Beverly High. Former 90210 stars Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering are also out to secure roles in the new spinoff.

Last month, Jennie abruptly dropped out of the CBS comedy pilot, My Best Friend’s Girl.

Also last month, AnnaLynne McCord and Dustin Milligan joined the 90210 spinoff.

Other additions to the show’s grown-up cast include Lori Laughlin (Summerland) and Jessica Walter (Arrested Development).

    I think this show has the potential to be better than the original: Back then it was very cheesey. The dialogue was terrible. It was like an after-school special half the time, but still addicting. With good writing, this show can be great.

  • mickey

    if tori spelling fugly a$$ is on there i will not watch it

  • *

    now all they have to do is sign on Jason Priestley…so Jay&Jen can have a reunion and they can set things straight once in for all with Brandon and Kelly. they desereved each other…dylan and kelly were the default ending…if jason returned it would have been B/K getting their happily ever after wedding!!!!

  • Cecilia

    We want a Brandon and Kelly reunion!!

  • Lisa

    I love 90210. I don’t think this spin-off will be very good without more of the original cast. They never should have killed Toni!

  • sarah

    wow, i LOVE HER!!

  • Serena

    jennie garth is adorable

  • _nika

    I have to agree with famous, this happens your career is in toilet. why else accept it.

  • Bella

    The original Beverly Hills 90210 was a piece of crap! I don´t get it why people have this nostalgia about it. This new spinoff can only be an improvement.
    Jennie Garth looks great, way better than she did when she was on Bevely Hills. And AnnaLynne McCord is smoking hot!

  • parisgirl

    I can’t hate I used to watch Beverly Hills 90210 but even back then I knew it sucked lol

  • cassendra

    very cool.. i wonder if she will be w/ dylan…..



  • P

    Brenda was the best character on that show. Why would Jenny Garth drop out of a CBS pilot for a CW one? The show is going to be awful, but I am sure it will have a teen following as most of these sub par shows do.

  • locks

    Bad idea. Remakes of classics in tv and movies are so jump the shark.

  • Alison

    I am more likely to watch if the old cast have reoccurring roles. Still, I don’t think they are going to come close to the original series.

  • wing

    She looks nice. I seem to see her sexy profile on a dating site named ‘r i ch k is s. c o m’. She is very hot there.

    ugh ugh ugly Sarah -hare with carrot! pics below

  • ☆ Paradise ☆

    She is so adorable. I love her style :)

    I totally agree with the whole “nostalgia” theme that everyone seems to have, the orginal was a complete mess. Sad to say it, but yes it’s true.

    I guess everyone is forgetting that the show is not about the original characters so I don’t see Brandon and Kelly getting back together. They were never meant to be anyways. Dylan and Kelly weren’t the default couple but if you want to look at it that way — Brandon and Kelly would have been default since Luke Perry left in Season 6 and that would have proved they were default because good ol’ Dylan left. Same thing in the finale.

    I am pretty optimistic about the series because I am hoping that they have more intelligent writing than the original. The original had absurb writing when you really think about it. It was suppose to be a teen drama yet it turned into All My Children. Yet…it wanted to send some type of message when it came down to drugs and rapes in the midst of the trainwrecks. I mean seriously, who would want to rape Tori Spelling aka Donna Martin? LOL

  • Laura

    She kinda looks like Katie Price in that picture.

  • sherry

    YES! Kelly was my favorite character, and I’m really excited to see the new show. Knowing Jennie Garth will be on it makes me happy.

  • please sign this petition if you support Brandon and Kelly getting reunited…

  • Gerry

    Think it sud be great wit Jennie it
    Wata bot Kathleen Robeson and Tori Spelling

  • the Truth

    You’re dead wrong #28. Brandon and Kelly were meant to be. Dylan and Kelly were the DEFAULT couple. Brandon and Kelly would’ve ended up together if Jason didn’t leave the show. B/K were never default, regardless of whether Luke was there or not. Dylan belonged with Brenda! B/K and B/D…that’s what it’s all about!!
