Shannen Doherty flops into bed after ‘first day of work’ on BH90210 in Vancouver: ‘Had a blast’
Shannen Doherty has begun filming the self-parodic revival of Beverly Hills 90210, the teen drama series she starred on in the 1990s.
Entitled BH90210, the new show has reunited much of the original cast and is shooting in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Posting an Instagram photo of herself in bed Thursday evening, Shannen, 48, told fans: ‘First day of work today and could not of gone better!’

The Memphis-born Heathers actress shared: ‘Had a blast on set and taking in the beauty of Vancouver once again. #bh90210’.
Shannen’s old Beverly Hills 90210 co-stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Gabreille Carteris, Ian Ziering and Tori Spelling are all in the new show.
Luke Perry, who became a teen idol through Beverly Hills 90210, died this February at the age of 52 after suffering an ischemic stroke.
‘Luke was a huge part of our 90210 family, and personally Luke was a very large part of my life. So, it’s obviously very difficult to do this without him,’ said Jason in May.

He and his cast-mates were at an event to plug their new series, in which Jason explained that the actors will spoof themselves, the Associated Press reports.
‘The show is comedic drama, very, very heavy on the comedy side. It’s a scripted, fake reality show that follows Jason Priestly and Ian Ziering and Jennie Garth, all of us trying to get a reboot of Beverly Hills 90210 made, and what that entails,’ he said.
Jason, who was roommates with Brad Pitt in the 1980s before either became a star, described the new show as ‘Very much like Episodes.’

He added: ‘A little bit of Arrested Development thrown in there. A little bit of Curb Your Enthusiasm thrown in there. But very much in the vein of those shows.’
The original series was created by Darren Star and produced by Tori’s father Aaron Spelling, the TV legend behind such shows as Dynasty and Charlie’s Angels.
It ran from 1990 to 2000 and produced a string of spin-offs including 90120, two shows called Melrose Place and a single-season soap entitled Models Inc.
