A New Class Enrolls At West Beverly High

Here is our first look at the cast of the new, as yet untitled, Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff which is due to debut on The CW this Fall:

In this first pic, we can see the show's matriarch Lori Loughlin is flanked by a cast of newcomers (Dustin Milligan, AnnaLynne McCord, Jessica Walter, Shenae Grimes, Tristan Wilds, Ryan Eggold, Jessica Stroup and Michael Steger -- none of whom look to be in their 30s ... but we have been fooled by youthful faces on 90210 before) who will be vying for our love and affection in the hopes that they will become the new Luke Perrys and Shannen Dohertys. Original Beverly Hills, 90210 alums Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling have signed on to appear on the show as recurring characters (Jennie will reprise her role as Kelly Taylor, who has grown up to become the guidance counselor at West Beverly High) but they, apparently, aren't important enough to the show to make the first cast photo. Tsk tsk. Personally, I'm lukewarm on the notion of a 90210 spinoff ... so they're gonna have to impress me. I'll tune in when the show premieres this Fall, I just hope they can bring the same bad clothing, bad acting and bad drama that the original show did back in the early 90s ;) [thanks Kevin]
