Us Weekly: Jennie Garth Talks about Fox Canceling BH90210 and Hints at Season 2
Days after the announcement of the cancelation of "BH90210," Jennie Garth shares hints on the direction the show is headed, including the possibility of a second season.
Since Fox announced the cancelation of "BH90210" on November 7th, fans of the show have tried to make sense of why their favorite reboot is not returning next summer.
Us Weekly caught up with Executive Producer, and cast member, Jennie Garth, in Texas, at the Austin Elevates, and she hinted on a possible return.
Addressing the confusion by fans, Garth said,
"The show is very meta, so it's good. The confusion is fine. Everybody is like what's happening? We don't know, nobody knows, but we are working it out."
The TV star noted that the reboot of the '90s hit show, "Beverly Hills: 90210," is unique, and it took a lot of conviction to get a lot of people onboard the vision and creative line the show toed.
She added she considers it a feat that they got the first season, and more so because people loved it, even though some preferred the previous reboot on the CW.
Garth concluded with,
"The show is sort of headed in the direction of giving everybody the best of both worlds."
The last statement hints at the possibility of a second season, and it reiterates another hint the "What I Like About You" star shared on Twitter after the cancellation got announced.
"Summer's highest-rated show gets more meta by the minute #BH90210 practically wrote itself. Thank you for the second season materials; you never know what's really going on behind the scenes, stay tuned."

A lot has happened since the show got green-lighted, and in an August 28th episode, it got revealed that Shannon Doherty got her hair yanked by Garth after the latter threw a script at her back when they first starred in the original series.
A day after the episode aired, the EP told People that during filming, she had moments when she thought former co-star, Luke Perry, who died in March, would be proud of what they accomplished with the reboot.
"BH90210" might not get a season two, but the cast remains close, and continue to support each other.
