We all know that there is nothing quite like the nostalgia we have for the 90s. It's hard to believe that soon enough 1990 will be 30 (ah) years ago. Things from the 90s have never really gone out of style, but a lot of 90s nostalgia is circling back now. And we can't say we're complaining. But this newest 90s nostalgia show coming to TV is peak 90s. Beverly Hills 90210 is getting a reboot, and the teaser trailer for the show just dropped. It's only a minute long, but it's making us so excited.
One of the most iconic things about Beverly Hills 90210 is definitely the theme song. As soon as you hear it, you know exactly what's coming. And in the teaser, that's exactly what happens. You see each of the seven leads, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Brian Austin Green, and Gabrielle Carteris, going about their morning routines. But then suddenly, the theme song begins in various ways.
Like Jennie Garth hears it in her blow dryer, and Shannen Doherty hears it in her meditation chimes. Or Tori Spelling hearing it in her coffee maker along with Jason Priestley's alarm clock. Slowly, the realization of what's happening comes over each of them. With knowing satisfaction, they all begin to lean into the theme song, because at this point, it's apart of their consciousness.
Hopefully they're not just using the theme song for the trailer only. As we said, the theme song is just as iconic as the actors at this point. Who could imagine a reboot of Beverly Hills 90210 without the song? And how great is it to see everyone back? We can't imagine a reboot of the OG 90210 (there was an updated reboot in the late 00s that focused on a new generation) without the original actors.
Sadly, there is one person missing from the revival (makes more sense than saying reboot.) Luke Perry, who played Dylan McKay died unexpectedly earlier this year. There's still several months before BH 90210 drops, but if the teaser is any indication, it'll certainly be worth the wait.
Catch the revival of Beverly Hills 90210 on its original network, FOX, starting on August 7th.
