Beverly Hills 90210
- 10 Seasons
Beverly Hills, 90210 was a popular primetime soap opera aimed at teenagers, which originally aired on Fox. Many of the actors moved on to successful careers after the show ended. The show begins when teenage twins Brandon and Brenda Walsh (Jason Priestly, Shannen Doherty) move from Minnesota to Beverly Hills, California as a result of their father's job being transferred. They begin school at the fictitious West Beverly High school, where they become friends with Donnna (Tori Spelling), Kelly (Jennie Garth), Steve (Ian Ziring), and Dylan (Luke Perry). The group is later joined by others, including David Silver (Brian Austin Green) and Val (Tiffany-Amber Thiessen). The show follows Brandon and Brenda as they adjust to the change in weather and the culture shock of joining the Beverly Hills crowd. Views watch the impact of the Beverly Hills lifestyle on these fairly sheltered teenagers, as well as the impact of their loving family and Minnesota values on their friends. The Walsh parents are also an important part of the cast, as most of the characters come to them for advice and guidance over the years. After the third season, Shannen Doherty left the show and was replaced by Tiffany-Amber Thiessen, as Brandon and Brenda's childhood friend. Luke Perry and Jason Priestly each left the series before the end of the run, although Luke Perry later in the ninth season. Jason Priestly also directed several episodes. Beverly Hills, 90210 ran for ten seasons, ending three years after the cast graduates college and embarks on their life as adults. The show was unique among teenaged dramas in that the series gave the characters two seasons as juniors in high school, before moving on to senior year, graduation, and college. The show was produced by Aaron Spelling, distributed by Worldwide Enterprises and Paramount Domestic Television, and aired on Fox from 1990 to 2000. The show was extremely popular among young adults, and eventually led to four spin-off television series.
