Amid all the greatness at the SAG Awards on Sunday night, one actor teased a project we’re all dying to see happen. SAG-AFTRA union president Gabrielle Carteris commented on rumors about a Beverly Hills 90210 reboot, though she stayed relatively mum when pressed for details by Entertainment Tonight.
Carteris, who played bookish Andrea Zuckerman on the original Beverly Hills 90210, said there have been recent meetings concerning a reboot. “I can tell you that’s true,” she admitted. However, she wouldn’t add much more. “I can’t say anymore than, you know, [that] if you loved us then, may you love us now,” Carteris told ET.
Although she couldn’t reveal any reboot details, Carteris did reflect on what it means to reunite with the Beverly Hills 90210 cast now. She said, “You know what, I can’t even tell you how exciting is to be with my castmates. I love them so much and for us to have all these years — we’ve had our children now, and we’ve been doing our lives, and we’re coming together. I don’t know what it will look like right now. We’ll have to see.”
These comments are really exciting, especially coming on the heels of cryptic updates from Carteris’ castmate Tori Spelling. The Wrap reported in December that the new series, which will include several members of the original cast, is still early in the development process. At the time, it hadn’t even been attached to or picked up by a network yet. With Spelling and Carteris creating a small chorus of voices talking about the reboot, we’re hoping to get more information about it soon.
In the meantime, Carteris also talked to ET about how exciting and special the SAG Awards are, especially in the middle of such a packed awards season. “Twenty-five years and we have some of the original first-time winners here tonight,” she said. “I mean, having Tom Hanks and Jodie Foster, both of them here who won the first actor awards, [is] crazy. We love award season, and all of them are so great. But all of the actors I talked to say this one is a little bit more special for them because they say it’s their peers saying, ‘Job well done.’”
