Sure, plenty of the old classmates from the original Beverly Hills 90210 have signed-up to be the CW's revamp of the cheese-TV classic. But forget those suckas. It was just announced today that simmering, lazy-eyed, trouble-making beauty Shannen Doherty is coming back!
"The CW's much-hyped 90210 reinvention braved the Hilton at the ballroom on their TCA day and made some substantial announcements. First of all, the big news is that Shannen Doherty will indeed be returning to 90210 as Brenda Walsh. And we will be seeing a return of Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling.
"Executive Producers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (Freaks and Geeks) also revealed that the quirky humor that made their cult hit so popular will find it's way into 90210. We'll also be seeing a more diverse Beverly Hills than in the original series.
"They also said that viewers will discover if there is indeed a connection between Jessica Stroup's character Silver and David Silver (Brian Austin Green) during the premiere episode. Let's just hope she doesn't share his penchant for painful white boy rapping." [EW]
Sadly, according the orginal report, many episodes may be sorely lacking in Doherty goodness. "[T]here will be a musical in an episode and Shannen will be the director. She'll be the guest drama teacher."
