Kelly Taylor is back.
Jennie Garth, who was rumored to return to her old stomping grounds at West Beverly High, will indeed join the cast of The CW's spinoff of "Beverly Hills, 90210," reports People.
Garth, 36, will make special guest appearances as a guidance counselor at her alma mater. She is the first original cast member to hitch herself to the project and the second person to be cast as part of the faculty after Ryan Eggold, who will play an English lit teacher.
The show will center on the experiences of the Mills family when they move to Beverly Hills because of the latest drunken exploits of grandmother Tabitha Mills (Jessica Walter), a has-been Hollywood starlet. Lori Loughlin will play her daughter-in-law Celia, while granddaughter Annie (Shenae Grimes) and adopted grandson Dixon (Tristan Wilds) maneuver through the hallways of West Beverly High.
Also previously cast are Jessica Stroup, AnnaLynne McCord and Dustin Milligan.
Garth recently exited the CBS pilot "My Best Friend's Girl," sparking rumors that she was freeing herself up for appearances on the as-yet untitled "90210" project. Although she made a name for herself on the original show, she also enjoyed a run on "What I Like About You" and performed honorably on "Dancing With the Stars."
