Nineteen years after its finale, Beverly Hills, 90210 returns to Fox tonight—kind of.

The new iteration, BH90210, reunites the entire original cast of the hit series—minus the late Luke Perry. But instead of playing their characters, they “are fictionalized versions of themselves” as the actual actors, said Tori Spelling, who played Donna Martin and helped developed the new series. “We wanted to leave it to the audience to decide what’s real.”

The cast—Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, Shannen Doherty, Ian Ziering, Jennie Garth, Spelling and Jason Priestley—all of whom are also executive producers, talked about the new series, debuting tonight, at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in L.A.

After 10 seasons on Fox, the original 90210 ended its run in 2000.
