Sure we’ve dreamed about it, fantasized about its possible return,
developed elaborate scripts ideas complete with character bios and costume designs, but until this morning, we never believed it would actually happen.
In fact, if this news actually pans out, CW President Dawn Ostroff could very well make up for the cancellations of EVERWOOD, VERONICA MARS,
GIRLFRIENDS and JACK & BOBBY in one fowl swoop!
Ready for it?
According to the Hollywood Reporter, “The CW is developing a contemporary spinoff of Aaron Spelling’s seminal 1990s teen soap BEVERY HILLS 90210.”
But wait, the news gets better. VERONICA MARS mastermind himself Rob Thomas is in talks to write the pilot which has already been put on the fast track by the network!!! [Note purposeful overkill on the exclamation points. Because yes, this is news is that exciting]
Needless to say, details of the spin-off are being kept tightly under-wraps. But that isn’t about to stop this TV Addict from humbly suggesting one tiny little idea [which I swear I haven’t been thinking about for years] that could link 90210: THE ORIGINAL SERIES with 90210: TNG
Your lead girl, your Marrissa Cooper/Brenda Walsh if you will, should be conceived as none other than Hannah — the daughter of Andrea Zuckerman and Jesse Vasquez. Taking it a little further, if there’s one thing VERONICA MARS taught us, it’s that everybody loves a class struggle. Hannah, the product of working class parents on scholarship [Principal Zuckerman perhaps?] must struggle with the realities of her new school, her new boyfriend [obviously a Logan Echolls type] and more importantly a new zip code. Welcome to 90210 B*tch! The show practically writes itself. Rob drop me a line, we’ll talk!
