Doherty and Luke Perry were the only stars of the original cast of the 1990s teen series who were missing when Fox announced the summer event series on Feb. 27. On that same morning, Perry suffered a massive stroke and died five days later. Doherty will also serve as executive producer on the six-episode BH90210, which will have the cast playing versions of themselves. "The new 90210 is described as a serialized drama – with a dose of irreverence — inspired by the septet’s real lives and relationships," according to Deadline. "Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Shannen, Jason (Priestley), Jennie (Garth), Ian (Ziering), Gabrielle Carteris), Brian (Austin Green) and Tori (Spelling) — who will play heightened versions of themselves — reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot up and running."
