CW Plans 90210 Spinoff

The CW has fast-tracked a spinoff of Aaron Spellling’s seminal ’90s teen soap, Beverly Hills, 90210, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But the really interesting part of the story is that Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas is in talks to write the pilot.

Thomas has had a rough time of it since the CW passed on his Veronica Mars FBI spinoff last spring. He was briefly on board the ABC comedy Miss/Guided (which is finally set to premiere next Tuesday), then jumped over to try (unsuccessfully) to improve the net’s execrable Big Shots.

Details surrounding the 90210 project are still hazy, and it’s unknown whether any characters from the original series will make the transition to the new show. The CW is expected to make a decision on whether to order a pilot by the end of the month.
