The Beverly Hills revival didn’t last long.
FOX has cancelled the BH90210 reboot after one season. TV Scorecards can reveal that the network will not move forward with BH90210 Season 2, despite creative plans for the show’s 2020 continuation.
Insiders say the summer show’s fate was ultimately sealed due to lower than anticipated ratings.
FOX said in a statement sent to TV Scorecards:
“We are so proud to have reunited in a very special summer event one of the network’s legacy series and casts with 90210 fans across the country. Profound thanks to and respect for Brian, Gabrielle, Ian, Jason, Jennie, Shannen, and Tori, who, along with the entire crew and everyone at FOX and CBS Television Studios, poured their hearts and souls into this truly inventive and nostalgic revival.”

About this show:
Original "Beverly Hills, 90210" star Shannen Doherty joins her former co-stars - Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling - for BH90210, FOX's highly anticipated new series airing this summer. For four seasons, Doherty starred as "Brenda Walsh" on the groundbreaking teen drama, but this time when the cast gets back together, it will come with a big twist: the seven former teen idols will be playing heightened versions of themselves in the brand-new serialized drama - with a healthy dose of irreverence - that is inspired by their real lives and relationships with each other. Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Shannen, 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. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast - whom the whole world watched grow up together - attempts to continue from where they left off?
