According to Variety, the Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off has earned a firm series order. That makes for two primetime pickups for the CW, with a third expected to be announced before the day is out.

As part of the "90210" pickup, Jeff Judah and Gabe Sachs have officially joined the skein as showrunners and exec producers. They fill the void originally held by Rob Thomas, who departed due to other commitments.

Judah and Sachs have been busy rewriting the pilot, which hasn't yet been shot.

News also comes soon after Jennie Garth became the first original "90210" cast member to join the new series (in a recurring role).

The cast includes Lori Loughlin, Jessica Walter, Dustin Milligan, Michael Steger, Jessica Stroup, Ryan Eggold, Shenae Grimes and AnnaLynne McCord.
