Brandon and Brenda aren’t done with “90210” just yet. Beverly Hills’ most famous twins will return to the hit CW show, one behind the camera and the other in front.
A rep for The CW confirmed to Access Hollywood that Jason Priestley will direct an episode of the new “90210.”
This is not Jason’s first time sitting in the director’s chair. He directed 18 episodes of the original “Beverly Hills 90210.”
And while he might be directing, don’t expect Jason to be growing out those trademark Brandon sideburns anytime soon.
“I think I sort of ran the gamut with Brandon – 249 episodes,” Jason told Access in June. “I think Brandon did his time.”
Walsh family fanatics will find some solace in the news that Shannen Doherty is talks to return to “90210” for more episodes, the CW rep also confirmed to Access.
Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello reports that Shannen will do new two episodes.
And will Jason be directing his former onscreen sister?
“I think it would be a kick for Jason to work with any of his [former ‘90210’ costars], and it would also add something special to that episode,” Executive producer Gabe Sachs told EW. “But we don’t know whether that will happen yet.”
