    Here's What The "90210" Characters Are Up To Now

    The show included three tributes to Luke Perry and dramatic updates on all of the cast's fictional lives.

    Beware, BH90210 fans — spoilers ahead!

    Fox

    First up, the credits are shot in the same way as the original, and they kept the same theme song.

    I know, I was also worried.

    The series begins with Tori Spelling dreaming of her 90210 co-stars at the Peach Pit until she wakes up screaming on an airplane next to Jennie Garth.

    Fox

    And for clarity, I must first explain how this show works: everyone is playing an exaggerated version of their real-life personalities. So, no, not their Beverly Hills, 90210 characters... yet.

    We learn that the cast is headed to Las Vegas for a 30th reunion at a convention for a variety of reasons.

    Fox

    For Tori, she's out of money after her reality series Tori & Nate: Spelling the Beans was canceled.

    Fox

    In real life, Tori & Dean ran for six seasons.

    Her husband "Nate" is a former NHL hockey player who struggles to hold down a job.

    Fox

    Brian Austin Green is a stay-at-home dad married to a famous actor (played by LaLa Anthony).

    Fox

    In real life, he's married to Megan Fox.

    He's flying to Las Vegas on a private jet and isn't totally excited to be headed there considering he hasn't acted in decades.

    Fox

    Ian Ziering is happily married and hawking a fitness book he's co-written with his wife.

    Fox

    In real life, he's sold a variety of anti-aging and beauty products alongside his wife and Tori Spelling.

    It's called "The Holly-Wed Workout" and his wife is an aspiring reality show star — she was just asked to interview to be a Bravo housewife.

    Fox

    Gabrielle Carteris has just become a grandmother who wants to be called "Gabby" and not "Grandma."

    Fox

    She's busy leading the "Actors Guild of America."

    Fox

    In real life, she's president of SAG-AFTRA.

    Jason Priestley is married to his publicist (Vanessa Lachey) and is working as a director on television shows.

    Fox

    He has a chip on his shoulder about being lusted after as pin-up boy Brandon Walsh. He's just broken his hand because he punched an actor on set who said he wouldn't take acting advice from him.

    Fox

    In real life, Jason has directed over 34 titles.

    Jennie Garth is going through her third divorce and is worried about press headlines that will say, "from America's sweetheart to sad spinster."

    Fox

    In real life, Jennie was married three times but is currently married to Dave Abrams.

    Tori tells her it's "his loss," and Jennie replies, "He said I'm too aggressive. Makes me wanna bash his brains in."

    Fox

    She also hates Jason Priestly. This will be important later on.

    The cast arrived in Las Vegas and it's awkward, but immediately they mention the passing of Luke Perry:

    Fox

    Shannen Doherty doesn't attend the reunion, but shows up via Instagram Live to surprise the cast and convention attendees.

    Fox

    The gag in this series is that everyone hates Shannen, which you can easily see on the cast's face when her giant face appears on the stage.

    She's off working with Tigers in Jaipur and has a charity called "PAWsitivelyShannen.org."

    Fox

    In real life, she's involved with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Susan G. Komen, and the Pearl S. Buck Foundation.

    After the convention is over, things get ~juicy~...

    At the pool, Jennie almost hooks up with a pig farmer until he calls her "Kelly."

    Fox

    ...so she winds up at the bar and hooks up with Jason (!).

    Fox

    Gabrielle flirts with a fan who says she had her first crush on Andrea Zuckerman at the bar and eventually kisses her after she asks to have a "teenage fantasy" fulfilled.

    Fox

    After a few drinks, Tori gets upset about her image being on so much 90210 merch and not getting a dime for it.

    Fox

    When she sees a dress she wore on the show as a teenager, she steals it from the convention while live-streaming it online.

    Fox

    The gang takes Brian's private jet back to LA and Tori Spelling launches into a speech while wearing the dress.

    Fox

    In response, Jason leads a cheers to Luke.

    Fox

    Ian Ziering receives a "butt dial" from his wife... and she's literally having sex with another man.

    Fox

    Then the plane lands and everyone's arrested!

    Fox

    This ends up being a great thing for Brian Austin Green because his mugshot was deemed "hot" by the internet. He decides to get back into acting.

    Fox

    Hot Felon 2.0???

    Shannen leaves Jaipur with a ticket to Los Angeles.

    Fox

    Tori arrives home to see that her husband has let their kids watch the original 90210 for the first time. While watching, she has a great idea to BRING THE SHOW BACK.

    Fox

    And as they watch the episode, the show zooms in on Luke Perry and freezes with a message that says "For our friend, Luke Perry."

    Fox

    And that's the first episode for ya! Who's ready for the next five?!
