The West Beverly Juniors panic about the next SATs, but then everything is put into perspective when Brenda finds a lump in her chest and faces a test that no one can prepare for. It's not his fault that Dylan entered rehab with the blow still in his pocket and left a day later, even if, within universe 90210, such behavior was extremely predictable. In addition, one of the cast members lied about his age to get a role as a high school student in the most famous zip code in the United States and Dylan McKay, one of the most iconic characters on television played by the late Luke Perry, was originally only supposed to be in two episodes before the legendary producer Aaron Spelling (Tori Spelling's father) stepped in and saved the day. Doherty, praised for her turn at Heathers, was arguably the biggest breakout star from previous seasons of 90210.While he wasn't ready to appear in Fox's revival BH90210, the show is set to pay tribute to the beloved star in its premiere.
West Beverly students head to Palm Springs for President's Day weekend and thinking that their grandparents are on a cruise, David invites Steve, Kelly and Donna to stay at his house, but is soon surprised when he learns what awaits them. While BH, 90210 would become one of the most popular television shows of the 90s and would be largely responsible for launching the teen soap opera genre, the Fox show was a flop when it first debuted in 1990, gaining mediocre viewers and ranking No. When new episodes appeared in the summer of 1991, 90210 became an addictive and unmissable phenomenon. West Beverly prepares for the annual Spring Dance and Kelly, worried about being named Queen of Spring and asks Brandon to be her date, which stirs up romantic feelings.
David showed off his dance skills at the school dance and grew in stature; Scott was an appendix with an overbite that quickly came to the end of his usefulness as a character in 90210.By the time 90210 aired its last episode in May 2000, it was an afterthought of pop culture compared to the more daring Dawson's Creek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Felicity and Charmed on the WB network. To mark the anniversary of that event, here is the original Los Angeles Times review of the series. The original stars (minus the irreplaceable Perry, who died in March) have once again repeated their alter egos in a cheeky meta-reboot that opens Wednesday night on Fox.
