‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ Cast Then & Now — 16 Years After the Series Finale


It’s been 16 years since 90210 ended its (first) reign as TV’s most recognizable zip code — the series finale of Beverly Hills, 90210 aired on May 17, 2000.

Nearly 17 million viewers tuned into FOX that night to see how the once-popular teen drama ended, and what became of the former students of West Beverly Hills High.

Tori Spelling

Never matching the same success she enjoyed on father Aaron’s show — on which she played Donna Martin — Tori has become a tabloid-friendly reality star (with shows like Tori & Dean and True TORI) and author (with books like Stori Telling and Spelling It Like It Is).

For better or worse, the 42-year-old has been married to Dean McDermott since 2006, with whom she has four kids.

Jennie Garth

Jennie enjoyed modest TV success after her 90210 role as Kelly Taylor, starring with a then-normal Amanda Bynes in The WB’s What I Like About You.

More recently, she recurred in reboot 90210 and re-teamed with Tori for Mystery Girls. She also reached the semi-finals in Season 5 of Dancing With the Stars.

The 44-year-old has been married to actor David Abrams for 10 months now, having previously been married to Twilight star Peter Facinelli, with whom she has three daughters.

Ian Ziering

Steve Sanders no more, Ian is currently busy fighting off airborne sharks as the star of the Sharknado TV franchise, the fourth movie of which (The Fourth Awakens) premieres later this year.

He too made it to the semifinals of Dancing With the Stars, competing in Season 4 and making partner Cheryl Burke want to slit her wrists. More recently, he competed on Celebrity Apprentice 7.

The 52-year-old was previously married to Playboy model Nikki Schieler, divorcing in 2002 after more than 4 years. Now he’s married to Erin Kristine Ludwig, and they have two kids.

Brian Austin Green

Of all the cast members, Brian may actually have worked most regularly on TV since playing David Silver on 90210 — starring in shows like Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Desperate Housewives, and Anger Management.

Of course, you know the 42-year-old better these days as the estranged husband of Megan Fox, with whom he’s expecting a third child. He also has a son with 90210 co-star Vanessa Marcil.

Jason Priestley

Canadian TV reclaimed Jason after he portrayed Brandon Walsh — he led the comedy Call Me Fitz for its four seasons, and now he’s a star of the family sitcom Raising Expectations (along with Molly Ringwald).

The 46-year-old’s passion for race car driving nearly claimed his life in 2002, when his car hit a wall at 180 miles per hour. But he lived to tell the tale — and to marry makeup artist Naomi Lowde in 2005, welcoming two kids with her in the years since.

Luke Perry

Save for a memorable 10-episode arc on Oz, Luke hasn’t made much of a splash on screen since playing Dylan McKay on 90210. He did, however, appear on Broadway in a revival of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. And now he’s in a buzzworthy new TV project, The CW’s Archie show Riverdale, set to premiere next season.

The 49-year-old also has two children with ex-wife Rachel Sharp, to whom he was married from 1993 to 2003.

The talk show Gabrielle hosted after leaving 90210 (and her role as Andrea Zuckerman) never took off, but she’s been popping up here and there on TV, recently appearing in 10 episodes of Code Black.

That’s her only high-profile role of late, but she’s been otherwise occupied! She was elected president of SAG-AFTRA this April.

The 55-year-old has been married to stockbroker Charles Isaac since 1992 — a lifetime in Hollywood! — and they have two daughters.

Shannen Doherty

After leaving 90210 and her role as Brenda Walsh after Season 4, Shannen scored a part in another successful Aaron Spelling project, The WB’s Charmed. But she left that show after Season 3 amid a reported feud with co-star Alyssa Milano, and her career hasn’t really recovered.

Like others on this list, Shannen competed on Dancing With the Stars, but was eliminated in the second week of Season 10.

The 45-year-old is married to photographer Kurt Iswarienko, her second hubby, and she has revealed struggles with Crohn’s disease and breast cancer.
