The actress, who had a couple of hit shows, but nothing for quite some time was added to the new reboot of one of the hits much to the chagrin of the two people who proposed the idea.

Beverly Hills, 90210
Shannen Doherty Joins ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ Miniseries Reboot
Shannen Doherty will reprise the role of Brenda Walsh, sort of, in the forthcoming Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot due this summer. Doherty confirmed the news on Instagram with the caption, “Yes it’s official. The real question is…will we still be rocking those outfits #bh90210.”
The actress, who appeared in the first four seasons of the iconic teen soap, will star in the six-episode “hyper-meta” series, joining Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling.
FOX’s synopsis of the series describes how the cast is essentially set to play versions of themselves: “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?” – Source
