The zip code to beat all zip codes returns in the new version of the series that >changed teen TV forever. It’s back to school and back to Beverly Hills in the new 90210! Kidzworld takes a sneak peek.

Main Characters

  • Annie Wilson – Annie and her family have recently moved to Beverly Hills from Kansas. She’s a sweet, friendly Mid-Western kind of girl who loves the theatre, and who is unprepared for the culture shock of moving to a place full of preps and rich kids!
  • Dixon Wilson – Annie’s adopted little bro Dixon also has to adjust to life at West Beverly Hills High, which shouldn’t be too tough for a star athlete and scholar like him… right?
  • Debbie and Harry Wilson – Annie and Dixon’s parents, who move the family to Beverly Hills to take care of Harry’s mother, an aging, alcoholic actress. Harry is also the principal of WBHH.
  • Naomi – The Queen of West Beverly Hills High, mostly because she just happens to be the hottest, richest, most spoiled girl around. Will sparks fly when little old Annie meets the Queen of the zip code? Only time will tell.
  • Ethan – If Naomi is the Queen, then Ethan is the King. Ethan’s a ladies’ man, the current top jock and would win any popularity contest.
  • Silver – The half-sister of Kelly and David from the original series, Silver is a “wannabe socialite” who quickly becomes Annie’s best friend. She also stars in her own YouTube series, called The Vicious Circle.
  • Navid – An aspiring reporter who gets the gossip on his classmates, Navid is a Scientologist and is struggling with his sexuality.
  • Ryan – The hip, unorthodox English Lit teacher that students love and the other teachers stress about.
  • Kelly – Yep, the Kelly Taylor from the original 90210 series. She’s now the guidance counselor at WBHH, and has a thing for the oddball English teacher…

Fun Facts

  • Other characters from the original series, including Brandon (Jason Priestley), Brenda (Shannen Doherty) and Donna (Tory Spelling) are expected to reprise their roles in future episodes.
  • Early on, there was a rumor that the part of Annie was going to be played by Hillary Duff. Hillary later said this was “not true.”
  • The high school that was used as West Beverly Hills High in the original series, Torrance High School, in Torrance, California, is also where the new 90210 is being shot. Buffy the Vampire Slayer was also filmed there.
  • Shenae Grimes (Annie Wilson) has starred in another revived teen TV show in her native Canada--the super popular series Degrassi: The Next Generation.
