She will join fellow original “Beverly Hills, 90210” cast members Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling, who have all already signed on to the project. The six-episode series is set to air this summer.
Coming 19 years after the original series finished airing, the new show will feature the seven former teen idols playing “heightened versions of themselves with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships with each other.”
Doherty is also known for her roles in various other TV series, including “Charmed,” “Little House on the Prairie” and “Our House.” Recently, she returned to another of her most famous roles, playing a part in the reimagined version of “Heathers.” Doherty played Heather Duke in the original.
“BH90210” will be produced by CBS Television Studios and FOX Entertainment. Doherty will executive-produce alongside Chris Alberghini, Mike Chessler, Patrick Sean Smith, Gabrielle Carteris, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering.
Alberghini and Chessler previously worked on the CW series reboot, “90210,” which ran for five seasons between 2008 and 2013. They will write this series with Smith.
