90210, the edgy spin-off of iconic 80s drama Beverly Hills, 90210 comes to Channel 4’s streaming and on demand service on Monday 5th November.
The series looks at life through the eyes of Annie Wilson and her brother Dixon, whose first day at West Beverly Hills High School leaves no doubt they’re not in Kansas anymore.
The Wilson family, including dad Harry and mom Debbie, has relocated to Beverly Hills to keep an eye on Harry’s mother Tabitha, a feisty-but-faded former television star.
For Annie and Dixon, the awkwardness of being the new kids is made worse by the fact that their dad has taken a job as the high school principal.
The school is one big culture shock for Annie, a sweet and friendly girl with a passion for the theatre, and Dixon, a star athlete and scholar who was adopted by the Wilson family after they took him in as a foster child.
Annie and Dixon have a close sibling relationship, which they’ll need to help them cope with all the new cliques and classmates, including Naomi, a hot, spoiled, rich girl; Ethan, a popular jock whose abilities rival Dixon’s; Navid, an aspiring journalist who heads up the school’s daily newscast; and Silver, a rebel who produces and stars in a YouTube-type video series.
Even the faculty seems hip and sophisticated at WBHHS, such as smart and funny teacher Ryan Matthews and beautiful guidance counsellor Kelly Taylor.
The Wilson family has just begun to realise how much their lives are about to change.
