LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The new “Beverly Hills, 90210” spin-off has a new cast member – and this time it’s an adult!
Lori Loughlin will join the cast of the new CW series, a rep for the network announced today.
Loughlin, whose TV credits include “Summerland” and “Full House,” will play Celia Mills, a former Olympian who now works as a personal trainer.
Celia has two 16-year-old children – daughter Annie and adopted son Dixon. She is married to Harry Mills, a former graduate of Beverly Hills High, who moves his family back to 90210 after several years in St. Louis.
Loughlin joins the already announced Anna Lynne McCord and Dustin Milligan in the cast.
Milligan will play Ethan, a likable jock who falls out of favor with the cool kids.
McCord will reportedly play a character named Naomi, one of the popular, rich kids at school.
