The original cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 is back in school – but they’re not igniting drama or creating complicated love triangles. Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Luke Perry, and Gabrielle Carteris have all been tapped to star as teachers in a series of Old Navy ads.
While the ’90s stars play more mature versions of their characters, sporting dark wash jeans instead of retro high-rise acid wash, odes to their former teen characters still manage to creep in. Garth still can’t choose between Perry and Priestley, while Carteris still fawns over Priestley (“And I love you… what? Nothing, outfit!”).
Of the original cast, two 90210 classmates are noticeably missing: Tori Spelling and Shannen Doherty. Maybe the feud between Garth and Doherty hasn’t healed yet. Or maybe Doherty thinks she’s more principal material. And as for Spelling, isn’t she already on TV enough? – Christian Allaire
