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.

The third season of 90210 welcomes the West Beverly kids to their senior year of high school.
It's the time of college acceptances and lovers' rejections, the time of prom dates and promises betrayed, the time of spring break, break-ups and make-ups - but as is always the case in Beverly Hills, it all happens in a world of sun and fun, palm trees and warm sea breezes, success and excess.
From the very beginning of the school year, the lives of the West Beverly group will be shaken up in a way none of them could ever imagine. And from this new starting point, their journeys will take them to staggering new heights and terrifying new depths.
We'll see the rise of a pop sensation and the fall of a group of friends, the beginning of a new love and the end of a professional dream, the creation of an unlikely family and the demise of another.
And that's just the first week of school... It's now or never for the students of West Beverly, and they're not going to waste a moment of time.
Expectations are high, hormones are raging, and scandals are hiding around every corner. From the brightest moments of love and happiness to the darkest hours of shame and fear, senior year at West Beverly promises to be an unforgettable journey into the lives, hopes and dreams of those lucky few who call 90210 home.
The series stars Lori Loughlin as Debbie Wilson, Shenae Grimes as Annie Wilson, Tristan Wilds as Dixon Wilson, AnnaLynne McCord as Naomi Clark, Ryan Eggold as Ryan Matthews, Jessica Stroup as Silver, Michael Steger as Navid Shirazi, Jessica Lowndes as Adrianna Tate-Duncan, Matt Lanter as Liam Court, Trevor Donovan as Teddy Montgomery and Gillian Zinser as Ivy.
90210 is produced by CBS Television Studios with executive producer Rebecca Sinclair and Dave Rosenthal.
