The reboot of the ‘90s hit teen drama "Beverly Hills, 90210" is underway, and Jennie Garth is spilling the beans on why they decided it was the right time to redo the show.

Garth spoke with "PopCulture" about bringing the "Team" back together; she said people have always wanted the show revived, but the timing was not right.

The actress said it felt right “Now” to bring everyone back together, and relieve what the show meant to them and the fans. She also said they were using it as an opportunity to celebrate and spend time together.

Garth has always been open about the possibility of the show coming back. In an interview on the "Today" show in 2017, the actress stated there was a chance of a reboot, and she is not opposed to it because she loves reunions.

The actress will star in the new show, named "BH90210," and act as executive producer with co-star and friend, Tori Spelling. Spelling told "Us Weekly" that she is excited to go back to work, and compared it to a family or high school reunion.

Apart from the two, others — Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, and Brian Austin Green — from the original show will reprise their role.

Doherty was the last to sign up, and she joined the cast after the death of her friend, Luke Perry; the actor was part of the original cast, but it was not specified before he if he would reprise his role as "Dylan McKay."

This is the second time the show is getting remade. It got revived by the "CW" network as "90210," and while fans expected the new reboot to take a hint from the storyline, Garth told "HollywoodLife" that they are choosing to ignore the "CW" show like it never happened, even though she appeared in about twenty episodes.

She explained that the first reboot moved away from the original storyline, but the new show is going back to its roots and the inspiration is from the real life of the cast and their relationships. "BH90210" returns in August on "Fox," and it is slated to run for six episodes.
