Cash-strapped Tori Spelling is no doubt breathing a sigh of relief with Fox’s news that the Beverly Hills 90210 reboot just got the green light.
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Tori was depending on the return of the show that made her famous in the 1990s to pay her many debts.
Now, it’s confirmed as a “go.” The network has released a dramatic trailer of the drama’s return, with video of the famous Beverly Hills palm trees and the announcement: “Guess who’s coming home? 90210. Coming this summer. Fox.”
However, the run of the show could be brief. Fox reportedly has only ordered six episodes of the series to run this summer, and the title of show has been shortened to simply 90210.
Tori, 45, has to be hoping the reboot soars in the ratings and more seasons ensue –after she and husband Dean McDermott, 52, have gone through numerous financial and marriage issues.
The two have five children—and serious money woes.
Radar just exclusively reported Tori was served with documents ordering her to appear in court in her ongoing $400,000 lawsuit with City National Bank.
Two days prior, Dean was served with court papers in the lawsuit as well.
City National Bank sued Tori and Dean in December 2016 for failing to pay back a loan of $400,000 given to them in 2010.
A hearing date has been set for March 29, 2019.
At one point the pair reportedly also owed the IRS close to $1 million in taxes.
Dean has been working as a boxing coach as his acting career has stalled.
As Radar reported, a source said Tori recently gave her husband an ultimatum, saying he needed to get a job to help pay off their debts–or leave!
Insiders have told Radar that Tori and Dean had a “blowout fight” after the holidays amid their seemingly never-ending financial difficulties, a source exclusively told Radar.
They recently house hunted but had to scale down their expectations on a rental home.
But now, it appears Tori has been a thrown a lifeline on their money issues with the new 90210 gig. She recently exulted to followers, “It’s confirmed. We’re doing a new 90210. It is the OG crew back together. We’re playing heightened versions of ourselves. So the fans will be pleasantly surprised. We will intercut that with scenes from the show.”
Fox Entertainment President Michael Thorn said, “Beverly Hills, 90210 left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation. Its powerful legacy is an important part of our network’s DNA – bold stories not told anywhere else and bigger-than-life-characters – and we’re honored to bring back the beloved original cast members for 90210.”
