Beverly Hills 90210 was one of the most iconic shows of the 90s, highlighting and addressing numerous teenage issues. The drama series debuted on October 4, 1990 and was on air until May 17, 2000. It has been named by AOL TV as one of the “Best School Shows of All Time.” The show averaged over 14 million viewers for all ten seasons and a number of spin-offs followed. Where is the cast of Beverly Hills 90210 now? Click through to find out what the gang is all up to these days. Some even went on to be co-stars again.
1. Shannen Doherty
Doherty played Brenda Walsh, the twin of Brandon Walsh (Jason Priestley) on the iconic show. The series revolved around the life of the Walsh siblings. Doherty got axed from the show in 1994, due to her poor attitude and inability to get along with her cast mates. Ironically, she went on to star in another hit show produced by 90210’s Aaron Spelling called Charmed. She was fired from that show as well, again for co-star conflicts. Doherty starred in a few films during the late 90s and early 2000s, including Mallrats, Sleeping with the Devil and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. She also hosted her own television series on the Sci-Fi network, Scare Tactics and starred on the North Shore. Doherty appeared on the tenth season of Dancing with the Stars, but was eliminated in the second episode. Today, Doherty is married to Kurt Iswarienko and is set to appear in a film and her own reality series early next year.
2. Jason Priestley
Priestley starred as Brandon Walsh, the hunky male lead of Beverly Hills 90210. Following the ending of the show Priestley had a brush with the law when he was arrested for drunk driving in 1999. He has made a number of guest appearances on hit shows like My Name Is Earl, Love Monkey, What I Like About You and Without a Trace. Priestley has also directed, including a 90210 episode which featured his former co-star Tori Spelling, a Hallmark Channel movie starring Luke Perry, two episodes of The Secret Life of the American Teenager and an episode of 7th Heaven. Priestley also has a passion for racing cars, but unfortunately was seriously injured in 2002 when his race car hit a wall going 180 mph. Luckily he made a full recovery and now owns the IndyCar Series FAZZT Race Team. Today, Priestley stars in the HBO Canada series Call Me Fitz. He’s married to make-up artist Naomi Lowde and lives in Los Angeles with their two children. His tell-all autobiography, Jason Priestley: A Memoir, was released last May.
