Kelly Taylor will be back to 90210 after all. Entertainment Weekly reports that Jennie Garth is set to return to the CW reboot this season, refuting reports that the show’s producers had not approached the Beverly Hills 90210 alum to reprise her role.
Garth has signed a deal to return this fall for multiple episodes, starting in episode 3, when her character, West Beverly High School guidance counselor Kelly gives Harry (Rob Estes) advice on how to deal with a certain “situation” with Annie (Shenae Grimes). Some say she will be the first to uncover Annie’s hit-and-run incident in the season finale.
90210 executive producer Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair previously said that she’d try to “move away” from the show’s nostalgia, which is due in part to the return of several original cast members in the debut season, including Garth, Shannen Doherty, and Tori Spelling. Both Doherty and Spelling have yet to sign up renewal deals.
The sophomore run of 90210 begins September 8 on the CW.
