Today’s Variety has leaked more details on the CW’s planned spin-off of BEVERLY HILLS 90210.
According to a casting breakdown, 90210: TNG will focus on the
Walsh Mills family as Harrison “Harry” Mills decides to leave Minnesota St. Louis along with wife Celia to look after his ex-actress alcoholic mother Tabitha Mills.
Enter the 16 year old Mills twins. As per the casting breakdown, Annie is a theatre nerd [think Brenda, the University years] and Dixon is a supersmart bad boy [or a carbon copy of Dylan McKay]
Rounding out the Rob Thomas spin-off are a plethora of your standard clichéd teenagers including Daphne Silver [YouTube Star, how 2008], her 24 year old brother Max Silver [Possibly related to David, as fans of the original series will remember what a man whore that Papa Silver used to be], Navid Shirazi [think a mash-up of DEGRASSI's Emma and Liberty], Ethan Ward [or THE OC's Luke] and ultra rich super hot Noami Bennett [who like all ultra rich super hot high schoolers starts off as a brat but ultimately ends up being a thoughtful interesting good girl with a heart of gold.]
Rob Thomas was also kind enough to confirm to PEOPLE Magazine that “there is a plan for bringing back one of the cast members,” but he said he didn’t know which one because “we haven’t talked to any of them.”
Which begs the obvious question. Which original cast member would you like to see appear in the new series? And does anyone know if Nat is still alive?
