Beverly Hills, 90210 Is Currently Shooting In North Vancouver

The Beverly Hills, 90210 franchise is continuing with its sixth iteration since first airing back in 1990. The highly-anticipated revival is less of a reboot or sequel and more of a “mockumentary” style fiction. The six-episode series called BH90210 will follow the the stars as they try to get the hit franchise re-launched.

BH90210 is set to premiere this summer on Fox. The premiere date is set for August 7th while production dates right here in Vancouver are scheduled from May 21 to July 31. Production is based in North Vancouver. Principal photography begins May 27.

Starring cast members include the returning Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering and Gabrielle Carteris.

Priestley aka Brandon Walsh is a North Vancouver native. He filmed a television movie in Vancouver earlier this year. He currently also stars in Private Eyes which films in Toronto. The third season premieres May 29.

Fellow cast member Luke Perry died earlier this year as the result of a massive stroke. At the time of his death he had not yet committed to being apart of the BH90210 project. Perry starred in Vancouver-filmed hit teen drama Riverdale and played Fred Andrews, father of Archie. He can be seen in the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood posthumously. It releases July 26.

Being a part of tv history is an honor but it also comes with some massive backlash. There has been many stories floating around about this show and me. One of the reasons I hesitated to say yes was for this crap. The only thing I’m a control freak over is my health. Trying to stay healthy and positive. I realized this morning, that I have a fear of doing what I love because of headlines like this. Not only because there is zero truth to it but because it lessens me and my journey, battle, experience with cancer. Why should I be scared to work? And why aren’t people held accountable for their fabricated stories? I refuse to be cast in the same villain role because “journalists” lack imagination and I certainly refuse to be cheapened as a survivor and as a woman by them. Yes, i am a strong woman. I have been thru hell and back. I am compassionate and caring. I’m multi faceted and not someone to be pigeon holed. I am a woman with my own story. Please stop trying to tell your wildly inaccurate, exaggerated story of me. I promise… you don’t know me.
