A representative for the network told TODAY.com that the tell-all TV movie will "show the roller-coaster ride of the program’s first four seasons, highlighting the drama between cast members and producers both on and off-set, including the series’ journey from several near-cancellations to its massive success and imprint in the cultural zeitgeist and lasting impression it has made on millions of people to this day."
"Beverly Hills, 90210," which turns 25 this fall, ran from 1990 to 2000 and made household names out of its young stars, including Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Luke Perry, Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling.
Friction between Doherty and the series' cast and producers famously led to her departure in 1994, and the introduction of Tiffani Thiessen as a lead character (no word on whether Lifetime will tap the same actress who played Thiessen in its 2014 "Unauthorized Saved by the Bell" movie).
Lifetime has yet to announce a release date for the "90210" movie, but '90s kids have "The Unauthorized Full House Story" to look forward to on August 22.
