LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jennie Garth is headed back to her old zip code.
Garth will reprise her role as Kelly Taylor on The CW’s new “90210” spin-off, the network announced on Saturday.
She is the first original cast member to join the new series.
According to The CW, Kelly Taylor will return to her alma mater, West Beverly High, as a guidance counselor.
Last month, Garth dropped out of a CBS comedy pilot (“My Best Friend’s Girl”), fueling speculation a “90210” return was in the works.
The split was described as a mutual decision between the actress and the producers of “My Best Friend’s Girl.”
In the new spin-off, Garth joins the previously announced Lori Loughlin, Dustin Milligan, AnnaLynne McCord, Ryan Eggold, Jessica Walter and Shenae Grimes in the new “90210” cast.
According to E!Online, the new “90210” series has also received a pickup from The CW. The network is expected to make the announcement during next week’s upfront presentations in New York.
