Stars from 1990s teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210 are to reunite on screens this summer for a new, six-part series - with a twist.

90210 will see original stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris playing what US entertainment website Deadline describes as "heightened versions of themselves", and not their characters from Beverly Hills, 90210.

The six stars reunite to try to get a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot off the ground - but how will they feel about each other 19 years later?

The series has received the green light from Fox in the US, which originally aired Beverly Hills, 90210.

"Beverly Hills, 90210 left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation," said Fox Entertainment President Michael Thorn.

"Its powerful legacy is an important part of our network's DNA - bold stories not told anywhere else and bigger-than-life-characters - and we're honoured to bring back the beloved original cast members for 90210."

Beverly Hills, 90210 ran for 10 seasons from 1990 and spawned a number of spin-offs. It received a reboot that lasted five seasons from 2008.
