Apparently new 90210 showrunner Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair wasn’t kidding when she promised last spring that 90210’s second season would be ‘significantly different’ from its first.
In fact, upon closer inspection of the show’s upcoming season premiere (airing September 8 at 8PM on the CW and Global in Canada), appropriately titled “To New Beginnings”, this TV Addict can’t help but wonder if a more appropriate title might have been “To New Directions.” How else to explain the single less-than-glamorous shot of the show’s once-central-character Annie Mills among the sixteen (Count ’em, 16!) publicity stills released to the media? Is it possible 90210’s creative team finally came to their senses and realized that the re-boot needs to focus on characters viewers actually care about (See: the Taylors — Jackie, Kelly and Silver). Or, is this simply a happy coincidence? Post away with your theory in the comments below.
