Well, gang…we have less than a week for the season premiere of 90210!!!  This is very exciting, and I’ve been keeping mum about so many things I’ve learned will be happening this season on the show.  So, now I’m going to share everything I know in celebration that the new season is about to begin.

First, a bit of a recap.  Season 1 ended with Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) having a huge falling out after Naomi mistakenly believed that Annie slept with Liam (Matt Lanter).  However, it was actually Naomi’s sister, Jen (Sara Foster), who actually slept with Liam.  After their falling out and Annie’s walk of shame out of the party at Naomi’s, Annie took to the bottle and went for a drive.  Annie’s drive ended with her running over someone.  Meanwhile, Liam went home where he was abducted by some militant guys that were going to take him away to boarding school per his step-father’s orders.  Dixon (Tristan Wilds) and Silver’s (Jessica Stroup) relationship continued to weaken, while Silver realized that Ethan (Dustin Milligan) had actually developed feelings for her.  Silver also realized that she has bipolar.  Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) had her baby with Navid (Michael Steger) and Brenda (Shannen Doherty) at her side.  Brenda adopted a baby after learning that she could not have children.  Donna (Tori Spelling) returned from Japan and we learned she became a famous fashion designer and was having problems with David (Brian Austin Green).  However, Donna once again left Beverly Hills, to go back to Japan and try to reconcile with David.  Harry (Rob Estes) and Kelly (Jennie Garth) rekindled their friendship which turned out to possibly be something more, and this made Debbie (Lori Loughlin) uncomfortable.  Kelly also revealed that the father of her child is actually Dylan (Luke Perry), and she had a brief romance with Ryan (Ryan Eggold).  Silver and Kelly learned that their mother, Jackie (Anne Gillespie) had returned to drugs and alcohol, and finally Ethan left town (though we don’t know why yet).

Annie will continue her downward spiral, which will lead her to a romance with Jasper.  Turns out that Jasper is the brother of the guy that Annie killed in the season finale, and he will be blackmailing and manipulating her throughout the season.

Sounds like this season will be EXPLOSIVE!  Can’t wait until it begins.  And for anyone out there who doesn’t know yet, 90210’s second season will begin next Tuesday (9/8/09) at 8pm EST.  Thank you 90210 Insiders for most of this information!!  🙂

90210-poster_174x261If any of you have been watching the new 90210 on The CW, you know that the show has kind of been all over the place this season.  It’s not that the show has been bad, it just hasn’t really found it’s place yet.  The production team has kind of been all over the place and has changed so many times I’ve lost count. 

Several original cast members returned, but were given pretty poor storylines.  Jennie Garth returned as Kelly Taylor, and was missing for many episodes b/c she took her son to visit his father, Dylan McKay.  Otherwise, Kelly has just had a “sort of” romance with West Beverly High teacher, Ryan Matthews.  Shannen Doherty returned as Brenda Walsh, and her first story was to direct a high school musical, while her second story was that she found out she couldn’t have children.  Tori Spelling returned as Donna Martin-Silver, and while her story is still going, it appears she returned so we could find out that her and David are having marital problems.  Joe E. Tata returned as Nat and wasn’t given a story.  Anne Gillespie returned as Jackie Taylor, and we learned that she is still divorced from Mel Silver, and has returned to drinking and sleeping around.  Not really the best storylines for the show’s vets, but it was really cool to see them return.

As for the main cast, we’ve already seen some changes, and it’s only the first year.  First off, the worst change in my opinion, was the show deciding to get rid of the hysterical Tabitha Wilson (played brilliantly by Jessica Walter).  However, that was counter balanced when the show took the character of Adrianna (played by Jessica Lowndes) from being a recurring character to a main character.

Then came the news the the hunk of the show, Ethan (played by Dustin Milligan), will not be returning next season.  Rumor is that he’ll be killed in the season finale b/c the character has run his course.  However, new character, Liam Court (played by Matt Lanter), will become a main character in season 2.

The stories of the main cast have really bounced all over the place, and several of them didn’t even make sense.  However, all of that is about to change (supposedly) in season 2.   Newly crowned series queen,  Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair , plans to make the newer cast much more interesting and really create a solid show.  However, she admits that the original actors have been brought on for rating boosts, and she doesn’t plan on using them as much (if at all) in season 2. 

So, with every bit of bad news, there is some good news.  I can only hope that the new 90210 will finally live up to the original.  It would be great if the show took on a Gossip Girl of the west coast feel, but with Gossip Girl getting it’s own spinoff this year, I guess we’ll get that type of show anyway.
