Beverly Hills, 90210 series reboot potentially on the cards

Most of the original faces are re-emerging

So last year I sat down with actor Brian Austin Green in Hollywood, and we talked about the possibility of a “Beverly Hills, 90210” reboot. In response to the question, he noted:

“I totally would if the script was interesting, if it was really well thought out. I don’t want to do one just to do it. I don’t wanna do another show if everyone is just doing it for no reason… give me a real good reason why these characters reunite that makes sense, I’d totally do it. I’d love to see everyone and hook up for the fans especially. I feel like if you make something that’s really fun to watch, then there’s a reason for it; if it’s not fun to watch, fuck it, don’t do it.”

And now, a year later, it seems like an interesting script may have presented itself as Green and a number of original cast members have been spotted around town, reportedly pitching the idea of a reboot to the 1990s classic teen drama.

Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Green and Gabrielle Carteris were papped by TMZ, and sources are telling Deadline that the reboot is being pitched to multiple networks and streaming services – with a number of interested parties already.

Notably missing from the photos are Shannen Doherty and Luke Perry, so where they stand on the whole reboot thing remains to be seen.

According to Deadline, the reboot features the actors reprising their characters two decades later but is not a traditional reboot.

Multiple spinoffs and reprisals have been done in the past, but nothing with this many of the originals.

Regardless of what happens, I’d like to reaffirm that Moviehole addressed this reboot long before the paps were lurking!

Comic-Con : Cobra Kai Season 3 reveals; Okinawa and more!

The producers, and cast of the series, appeared at SDCC today

At this afternoon’s panel for YouTube’s “Cobra Kai”, fan questions – not surprisingly – weighed heavily on whether or not Ali Mills, played by Elisabeth Shue in the original 1984 film, would appear in the show’s upcoming third season.

Shue hasn’t played the role of Daniel LaRusso’s love interest since John G.Avildsen’s original “Karate Kid” but her character has been referenced fairly heavily on the sequel series, which recently concluded its second season on the streamer.

While the show’s producers, along with cast members Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, refused to answer the ‘will she or won’t she?’ question, they did raise the hopes of fans with their cheeky ‘we’ll be non-comittal’ answers, even refusing to answer a question about whether or not they’ll be meeting up with Shue at Comic-Con, where she’s promoting her new series “The Boys”.

A betting man might lay down money on a Shue appearance very soon – –  it’s just possible some i’s need to be dotted and some t’s crossed before an announcement can be made though.

What the producers could confirm for season 3 was the return of Okinawa, the birth place of Pat Morita’s Mr Myiagi.

In 1986’s “The Karate Kid Part II”, Daniel LaRusso tagged along with his mentor to his home.

Daniel will return to the portal between Japan and the tropics, for a little r and r, and to help get himself back on track.

Might that mean a possible reunion between LaRusso with old flame Kumiko, played by Tamlyn Tomita?

Further ahead, there’s also the possibility we might either see – or at least hear of – Julie Pierce, the character played by Hilary Swank in “The Next Karate Kid”.

The show’s producers confirmed that Julie is indeed part of this world and hinted that we might get an update on her in the future.

As far as the producers are concerned, everything but the animated “Karate Kid” series – which they admit makes some questionable choices – is considered canon so the possibilities are rather endless.

For those anxiously awaiting a home video release of the two seasons of “Cobra Kai”, the producers suggested that things are looking good for a DVD and/or Blu-ray release in the future.

We hope to snag some cast over the weekend so we can bring you more “Cobra Kai” juice over the next week.

Ahead of Saturday’s final “Arrow” panel at San Diego Comic-Con (no dice on getting panel passes yet, so we hope we get in for you guys – ed), star Stephen Amell spoke to EW about the final ten episodes of the series as well as previewed his new emerald get-up.

“I’m very emotional and melancholy, but it’s time,” Amell, who features on the cover of the magazine in the new ‘Green Arrow’ garb he wears next season, said.  “I’m 38 years old, and I got this job when I was 30. I’d never had a job for more than a year. The fact that I’ve done this for the better part of a decade, and I’m not going to do it anymore, is a little frightening.”

And here’s a look at Oliver’s look for the final batch of eps, hitting in just under 3 months.

“Arrow” premieres Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 9 p.m. on The CW.

Eight years after the original website went dark, a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl.

WarnerMedia’s proposed reboot of the popular teen drama will reportedly address just how much social media – and the landscape of New York itself – has changed in the intervening years.

To air on HBO Max, “Gossip Girl” has been commissioned straight-to-series for a 10-episode order. Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage of Fake Empire and Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo of Alloy Entertainment will produce the redo, which like the original Blake Lively-starring series is based on the book series of the same name.
