It’s official: The '90s show that set the bar for all other teen dramas is coming back to our screens this summer. The Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot, called 90210, will be a bit different from the original show we all know and love, but will have some nostalgic elements to it that you're not going to want to miss.

There's not much information about the reboot right now, but here's everything we know so far.

Wait, wasn't there already a 90210 reboot?

Yep, and it was also called 90210. It aired from 2008 until 2013, but it sounds like the new 90210 will be bigger and better than that version, especially since two of the O.G cast members, Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth are the brains behind it. "[Tori] kicked the idea around … and she ran with it, literally put the entire cast together, put a fabulous pitch together with all of them and took it out, and everybody wanted it,” said CBS TV Studios president David Stapf.

Plus, Tori confirmed that other original cast members will be on the show, just in a different way than we're used to seeing 'em. “It is the O.G. crew back together and we are playing a heightened version of ourselves,” she told Access Live.

Who is part of the 90210 cast?

In February, Fox ordered six episodes of the reboot. The limited series, being produced by CBS TV Studios, will only feature six original main cast members:

  • Jennie Garth (Kelly)
  • Ian Ziering (Steve)
  • Jason Priestly (Brandon)
  • Brian Austin Green (David)
  • Tori Spelling (Donna)
  • Gabrielle Carteris (Andrea)

    Was Luke Perry going to be in 90210?

    It’s unclear whether Luke Perry (Dylan) had plans be a part of the revival before his sudden death. While Tori said that Luke would try to be as involved in the show as his schedule could allow (he was busy filming Riverdale), Stapf said the late actor wasn't supposed to part of the reboot.

    Despite this, the network still wants to honor the beloved actor in the new show. “How we deal with that moving forward is yet to be determined," Stapf said. "That’s something the writers are going to have to figure out.”

    Catch Up on the Original Show Before the Reboot

    Where can I watch and stream 90210?

    As of right now, there is no set premiere date for the "hour-long mockumentary-style dramedy," but fans have been promised it will arrive in the summer of 2019. If you plan on watching the new show on your laptop, tablet, or phone, you can live stream it on the Fox website, the iPhone app, or Android app.

    Currently, dozens of Fox's hit shows can be streamed on Hulu, so we can expect the reboot episodes to also appear on the popular streaming service the day after they air.

    As if we needed another reason to want summer to arrive faster!
