How To Guarantee A Hit TV Show

I've been thinking a bit about this new as-yet untitled Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off show that is set to debut on The CW this Fall and while I'm excited that we, the viewing audience, will be able to return to the hallowed halls of West Beverly High, I'm really worried about the casting. I totally get that it makes sense to cast a bunch of relative unknowns (after all, how many of the original castmembers were well-known actors when they were cast in BH, 90210?) but I feel that bringing back most of the old cast would do wonders for the new show's popularity ... wouldn't it be amazing to see the cast look something like this:

Sure Jennie Garth (Kelly Taylor) is set to return and Tori Spelling (Donna Martin) is in talks to come back as well but I would LOVE for the entire cast to come back for this new show ... even Shannen Doherty (Brenda Walsh). Surely someone can make it happen right? Right? [Source]
