It’s Official: Jennie Garth Joins the New 90210
As was rumored, Jennie Garth will make special guest appearances on the CW's new spinoff of Beverly Hills, 90210, playing a guidance counselor at her alma mater, West Beverly High, the network announced Saturday.
Garth is the first original cast member to sign on to the spinoff -- though many former stars (including Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering) are lobbying for parts. Since the announcement was made last month, the cast has been rapidly filling up: Lori Loughlin has signed on to play Debbie Mills, wife of the high school principal who returns to take care of his alcoholic mother.
