Summer’s over, and the West Bev kids have returned to school for their senior year. This was the plot of The CW’s 90210 Season 3 premiere, sensibly titled “Senior Year, Baby.” (Watch the first two minutes of the video to hear that line get repeated way too many times).
But did the episode bring all the drama fans expected? Well, there was a natural disaster, a life-altering injury and a rape flashback…and that was just the first ten minutes. The fatal car crash came a few scenes later.
Kim and Khloe Kardashian will guest star on 90210 in the upcoming season, and what better way to showcase the reality starlets than with a catfight?
Naomi Clark (AnnaLynne McCord) will get into a verbal battle with the sisters during a shopping trip at DASH. See a brief glimpse of the scene in the video above.

90210 star AnnaLynne McCord isn’t doing anything different by following in the nepotistic footsteps of Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson, and Britney Spears; however, McCord tends to be more blatant about it than all the rest.
The former Nip/Tuck villainess is rarely seen around town without her two sisters, Angel and Rachel. Though they’ve been seen around the 90210 set to support their famous sister, McCord isn’t going to settle for just that—she wants them on the show!
Rachel told E! herself that she’s in talks with casting on the show for an upcoming role… at AnnaLynne’s request. While there is no official word just yet, we can probably count on seeing Angel in talks with a role as well.
Let’s just all hope that the two siblings will prove to be worth all of this work when the spotlight turns to them.

Ethan admitted his feelings for Silver, Naomi got into a screaming match with Annie, hottie Liam got dragged off to Godonlyknowswhere…and the main character might’ve killed someone at the end of the episode. All in all, it was a pretty good first season finale for 90210.
To backtrack, the episode followed up on the Sophomore Prom (an event which does not exist at any high school I’ve ever known…but then who knows what the kids are doing these days). Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) decided to host the after party at her house, a decision which led to the culmination of several different story lines.
90210 returned to TV last night after a long mid-season break. For days, the promos titillated us, promising more drama, more twists and more shock. Did last night’s episode deliver?
After finding out that Shannen Doherty’s Brenda Walsh can’t have kids (and might adopt - yowzah!), former druggie Adrianna Duncan (played by Jessica Lowndes) is preggers, half-brother Sean (Josh Henderson) was really a con man and that the cute cheerleader Christina Worthy (Lauren London) is a bisexual, it’s hard to imagine there could be more.
But rest assured, 90210 fans…there will be more.

Though 90210 won’t return with fresh episodes until January, there’s plenty of gossip about directions the show might be taking. Want the scoop?
AnnaLynne McCord, who plays Naomi, recently let a few details slip regarding the new half-brother who’s suddenly on the 90210 scene. The character, played by Josh Henderson, is a brother to both Naomi and Annie (Shenae Grimes). “We’re going to find out some really, really, really bad stuff about my brother. It’s going to be a crazy reveal of certain things in his past,” McCord hinted around at possible future plot. “There’s a possibility that Josh Henderson’s character isn’t our brother at all,” she revealed.
There’s also gossip that a bisexual character will soon start making waves in the zip, and that there’s going to be a lot more going on in Silver’s life soon. According to rumor, Silver will be diagnosed with a medical problem, possibly bipolar disorder.
Not interested in any of this? Don’t worry, there’s bound to be some juicy stuff coming up for Kelly Taylor and Brenda Walsh soon.

Okay - it’s been 12+ hours now since 90210, and I think I’ve had a proper amount of time to digest that premiere. And while my impressions of the show haven’t changed since last night night, it’s taken me a while to quickly summarize why I was left disappointed:
90210 wants to be what Gossip Girl already is.
After reading a list of reviews today - including the one written by my TV Envy colleague - I felt there was still room to offer an opposing opinion.
In general, most of the critics agreed that the show was much better than feared. I mean - should we have expected more from a show that didn’t offer any previews? No. But should we have expected more from a network that already offers quality catty fare? Yes.
If you’ve been wondering how the old 90210 vets would mesh with the current students of West Beverly, here’s your chance to make a snap judgment.
My first thoughts? Shannen Doherty‘s face looks puffy, AnnaLynne McCord is as disgustingly beautiful as she was on Nip/Tuck and Shenae Grimes looks like she’s still at Degrassi.
In other words: This is Must See TV.
90210 starts its school year on September 2nd.

Well, we already know they look the part - but will CW’s new 90210 cast actually do the spinoff justice?
In the video below, the actors talk about their new roles and give us a hint as to what we should expect.
Although they promise to “take this show to a whole new level,” this clip feels very similar to things we’ve seen before—from the production value straight down to the character description. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; I just don’t think they should set the bar too high for themselves.
