About the Show

90210 is an American teen drama television series developed by Rob Thomas, Jeff Judah and Gabe Sachs. It is the fourth series in the Beverly Hills, 90210 franchise created by Darren Star.

This reinvented series looks at life through the eyes of Annie Wilson and her brother Dixon, whose first day at West Beverly Hills High School leaves no doubt that they're not in their hometown of Kansas anymore.

The series aired in the USA on The CW from 2 September, 2008 to 13 May, 2013. There are 114 hour-long episodes in five seasons.

90210 premiered in South Africa on M-Net on Thursday 8 January 2009, at 19h30. It was moved to DStv's Vuzu channel for Season 3, to M-Net Series for Season 4 and to M-Net Series Showcase (simulcast in HD) for Season 5. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 5 premiered on M-Net Series Showcase on Saturday 13 July 2013, at 17h30. New episodes broadcast in a quadruple bill, weekly. There are 22 episodes in the fifth and final season.

Synopsis

An edgy, contemporary spin-off of the iconic drama Beverly Hills, 90210, the new 90210 looks at life through the eyes of Annie Wilson (Shenae Grimes) and her brother Dixon (Tristan Wilds), whose first day at West Beverly Hills High School leaves no doubt they're not in Kansas anymore.

The Wilson family, including dad Harry (Rob Estes) and mom Debbie (Lori Loughlin), has relocated to Beverly Hills to keep an eye on Harry's mother Tabitha (Jessica Walter), a feisty-but-faded former television star and a charter member of the Betty Ford Clinic.

For Annie and Dixon, the awkwardness of being the new kids is made worse by the fact that their dad has taken a job as the high school principal.

The school is one big culture shock for Annie, a sweet and friendly girl with a passion for the theatre, and Dixon, a star athlete and scholar who was adopted by the Wilson family after they took him in as a foster child.

Annie and Dixon have a close sibling relationship, which they'll need to help them cope with all the new cliques and classmates, including Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord), a hot, spoiled, rich girl; Ethan (Dustin Milligan), a popular jock whose abilities rival Dixon's; Navid (Michael Steger), an aspiring journalist who heads up the school's daily newscast; and Silver (Jessica Stroup), a rebel who produces and stars in a YouTube-type video series.

Even the faculty seems hip and sophisticated at WBHHS, such as smart and funny teacher Ryan Matthews (Ryan Eggold) and beautiful guidance counselor Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth, the original Beverly Hills, 90210).

90210 is produced by CBS Paramount Network Television with executive producers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah. Mark Piznarski (Gossip Girl) is the director and executive producer of the pilot.

Seasons

Note: the first two seasons aired on M-Net, after which the show was moved to Vuzu. After one season on Vuzu the show was moved to M-Net Series and for the final season it was moved to M-Net Series Showcase (the first season to be simulcast in HD).
