The Beverly Hills, 90210 revival series was picked up a six-episode summer event series earlier this year. After a strong premiere on Aug. 7, viewership kept tumbling week after week. About 50% of the premiere audience stuck around for the season finale. BH90210 was created by original Beverly Hills, 90210 stars Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling along with writers Mike Chessler and Chris Alberghini. As The Hollywood Reporter's Lesley Goldberg notes, "the series suffered creative issues before its premiere, with a showrunner change and multiple writers quitting over the course of the short season as Spelling and Garth were said to want the revival to have a tone similar to Curb Your Enthusiasm. (Sources say 13 writers quit the series throughout its run.)" She adds that BH90210 was "relatively inexpensive" to make, especially with its stars earning relatively low pay for a reboot of a beloved franchise.
