Members of the original cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 are returning for a six-episode event series on Fox, the USA network announced Wednesday - setting off a million text exchanges among diehard fans, no doubt.

Original stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering and more return to play "heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama - with a healthy dose of irreverence - that is inspired by their real lives and relationships".

"Beverly Hills, 90210 left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation", said Michael Thorn, Fox entertainment president.

The show is slated to run in Summer 2019.

Beverly Hills' most-famous residents are coming back to the zip code. In this version, the actors will be playing heightened and irreverent versions of themselves (perhaps not unlike Matt LeBlanc did on Showtime's Episodes) as they contemplate reviving the original show.

Oil Prices Rally Despite U.S. High Output
U.S. exports hit a record 3.6 million bpd this month. [RIG/U] The report indicates the direction of future crude oil production. The group, known as OPEC+, agreed in December to cut output by 1.2 million bpd to prevent a crude supply glut from growing.

Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it's time to get a "Beverly Hills, 90210" reboot up and running. Spelling and Garth have, along with The CW's 90210 writers Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler, concocted the alternative revival take and have been developing for the past few years.

90210 will be produced by CBS Television Studios and FOX Entertainment. Carteris, Garth, Green, Priestley, Spelling and Ziering will also executive produce. As for fellow original cast members Shannen Doherty and Luke Perry, neither THR nor Fox's official press release indicated if they would be involved.

The original series ran on Fox from 1990 to 2000, and a revival called "90210" - featuring a mostly new cast alongside Spelling, Garth and Doherty - ran from 2008 to 2013 on the CW.
