Jennie Garth has joined the cast of the CW's "Beverly Hills, 90210" spin-off as a recurring character, reprising her role as Kelly Taylor from the original series.
Jennie Garth is returning to the old 90210 neighborhood. The actress who's best known for playing the role of Kelly Taylor in TV series "Beverly Hills 90210" (1990) has signed on for the show spin-off, about to reprise her role from the original series, the CW network announced Saturday, May 10.
Garth previously spent 10 years on the original show. As for the forthcoming one, her role Kelly is said to play a guidance counselor at her alma mater, West Beverly Hills High. She, nevertheless, is not a regular on the new "90210."
Garth sparked rumors that she was about to return to the new "90210" after she pulled out of a pilot for the new series "My Best Friend's Girl" in April. Thus far, she's "the first [original] cast member to reprise her role," the CW has confirmed.
The show's other original cast members, including Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering, in the meantime are still lobbying for parts.
