'Beverly Hills 90210' Cast Return To FOX With Six-Episode Event

"Beverly Hills 90210" is getting a sequel. Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling, the original stars of “Beverly Hills, 90210, are set to return to FOX, the network they called home for the entire decade of the 1990s, in a six-episode event series, 90210. Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler (“90210,” “Awkward”) will write and executive-produce 90210. The series is scheduled to air Summer 2019.

"90210" comes with a big twist: Priestley, Garth, Ziering, Carteris, Green and Spelling will play heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama – with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships.

Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a “Beverly Hills, 90210” reboot up and running. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast – whom the whole world watched grow up together – attempts to continue from where they left off?

“‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation,” said Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, FOX. “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 honored to bring back the beloved original cast members for 90210.”

Spawning generations of imitators, “Beverly Hills, 90210” premiered on FOX on October 4, 1990, when it became an instant pop culture sensation and one of the most adored programs in the network’s history. Centered on the tony Los Angeles community identified in its title, the show aired for 10 seasons, during which it documented the trials and tribulations of a group of friends from high school to college and into early adulthood, as they navigated a myriad of coming-of-age dramas and complex rivalries, often making real-world headlines by tackling controversial and socially relevant topics.

90210 will be produced by CBS Television Studios and FOX Entertainment. It will be executive-produced by Chris Alberghini, Mike Chessler, Gabrielle Carteris, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering. The series was conceived by Alberghini, Chessler, Spelling and Garth. 

'The Masked Singer' Finale - 'Bee, Monster and Peacock UnMasked

"The Masked Singer" Finale unmasked their Top 3 finalists when Peacock, Bee and Monster each performed for the last time before naming the winner. Before the unmasking, the season reviewed the 9 celebrities in since the season started. The already unmasked celebrities were Hippo - Antonio Brown, Pineapple - Tommy Chong, Deer - Terry Bradshaw, Poodle - Margaret Cho, Raven - Rickie Lake, Unicorn - Tori Spelling, Alien - La Toya Jackson and Lion - Rumor Willis.

After the Top 3 performed their last number, the eliminations began. In third place was Bee who turned out to be Gladys Knight, second place was Peacock who was revealed to be Donny Osmond and winner Monster who was revealed to be T Pain.

Hosted by Nick Cannon, with panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke, "The Masked Singer" is a top-secret celebrity singing competition that will have everyone asking, “who’s behind the mask?!” Based on an international format, and already a viral phenomenon with over half a billion fans worldwide, the series features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity. With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. Although the celebrities’ identities are a mystery, between them they have a combined 65 Grammy Award nominations, 16 Emmy Award nominations, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles. The singers may attempt to throw the crowd off of their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated by the audience and judges each week, based on their performance, and will then reveal his or her true identity. It’s not a “whodunit,” it’s a “whosungit!”

"The Masked Singer" has already been renewed for Season 2.

Queen + Adam Lambert Set For ABC's ‘The Show Must Go On’ Documentary

Fresh off of Queen + Adam Lambert's show-stopping opening performance at the Oscars(R) on Sunday, Feb. 24, Lincoln Square Productions has acquired the U.S. television rights to a documentary from Miracle Productions on the iconic band and their new regular frontman, Adam Lambert. Produced by Jim Beach and acclaimed writer and filmmaker Simon Lupton, "The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story" airs MONDAY, APRIL 29 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, prior to Queen and Lambert's already sold-out July/August 2019 U.S. Rhapsody tour.

Watch Queen and Adam Lambert's Oscar Performance Below. 

With rare concert footage and exclusive, revealing portraits of the band members offstage, "The Show Must Go On" chronicles Queen and Lambert's incredible journey since they first shared the stage together on "American Idol" in 2009. From his humble beginnings and meteoric rise on reality TV to now standing center stage as lead singer of Queen + Adam Lambert, the documentary features brand-new interviews with Lambert, his parents Leila and Eber, and Queen founding members Brian May and Roger Taylor, as well as "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell, Golden Globe(R) and Oscar(R) winner for Best Actor "Bohemian Rhapsody"'s Rami Malek, and Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins.

Queen remain vanguards of rock in the 21st century. They scored their first No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1980 and soared through that decade performing in stadiums, including their landmark 1985 performance at Live Aid which was seen by 3 billion people worldwide. Freddie Mercury died of AIDS in 1991, and a star-studded tribute concert the following year was thought to be the conclusion of Queen live.

"The Show Must Go On" simultaneously follows the ensuing 17 years. Lambert, starting at the age of 10, is beginning to come of age, discovers his love of music and finds a voice of his own while, across the pond, the surviving members of Queen see their songs remain staples with DJs, in clubs, in theatres around the globe with their hit musical, "We Will Rock You," and in movies. Lambert and Queen intersected in spectacular fashion when Lambert first performs with the band, singing "We Are the Champions" as one of only two finalists on Season 8 of "American Idol." The public reaction was remarkable and first seeded the idea that perhaps Lambert might become a permanent fixture in the Queen family. In 2012, Queen + Adam Lambert was born. To date, Queen + Adam Lambert have performed together in nearly 200 sold-out shows in arenas and stadiums across the world.

"The Show Must Go On: The Queen + Adam Lambert Story" is produced by Simon Lupton and Jim Beach for Miracle Productions, and Matt Lombardi is executive producer for Lincoln Square Productions.  

'Life In Pieces': CBS Announces Season 4 Premiere Date

CBS's hit family comedy, "Life in Pieces"  is set to premiere on Thursday, April 18. 

This season, the Short family welcomes a few new family members and weathers an unexpected health crisis, plus some long-hidden secrets are revealed in an unexpected way. 

"Life In Pieces" is a comedy about one big happy family and their sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments as told by its various members. As the family's lives unfold in four short stories each week, they try to savor these little pieces of time that flash by but stay with you forever, because these moments add up to what life's all about.

Dianne Wiest, James Brolin, Zoe Lister-Jones, Colin Hanks, Angelique Cabral, Thomas Sadoski, Betsy Brandt, Dan Bakkedahl, Niall Cunningham, Holly J.

'The Voice': The Comeback Stage Returns With Fifth Coach Bebe Rexha

"The Voice" is getting ready to launch the second season of the nine-part digital companion series "The Comeback Stage," presented by Lays. This season kicks off with new coach John Legend and returning superstar coaches Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on Monday, February 25 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
Singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha will serve as the companion series "fifth coach." She will mentor deserving artists who did not make a team during the Blind Auditions as well as eliminated artists from later rounds. This season the competition is tougher than ever as new rounds have been added to the Comeback Stage, making it more difficult to earn a spot in the Live Shows.

During the first round of competition, six artists who did not get a chair turn go head to head. In each episode, two artists will compete and sing for Grammy Award-nominated Rexha, who will select a winner to move on to the next round of competition.

In the next round, Rexha will bring back three deserving artists who were eliminated during the Battle Rounds, giving them a chance to re-enter the competition through the Comeback Stage. These artists will face off against the three artists from the first round of competition.

After Rexha has chosen the three finalists, they will perform for her in the Semi-Finals before she narrows it down to two. In the Comeback Stage Finals, Rexha will pick one artist to move forward and compete against another eliminated artist from a later round of the competition.

The two final artists will perform live for America on the Tuesday, April 30 episode of "The Voice." A Twitter Instant Save will ultimately determine who re-enters the competition as part of the Top 13. The winning artist will select their coach and join that team.

"The Voice" airs Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.

Regina King is having a great night. The actress, producer, and director can add Oscar-winner to her impressive list of achievement. King took home the first Oscar of the night for her role in "If Beale Street Could Talk." The actress beat out strong competition from Marina de Tavira (Roma), Amy Adams (Vice), and Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz  (The Favourite).

“To be standing here representing one of the greatest artists of our time, James Baldwin, it’s a little surreal,” King said during her acceptance speech. “James Baldwin birthed this baby and Barry [Jenkins], you nurtured her, you surrounded her with so much love and support, so it’s appropriate for me to be standing here because I’m an example of what it looks like when support and love is poured into someone.”

King paid tribute to her mother who was in the audience to celebrate her win. "Mom, I love you so much," said King.  "Thank you for teaching me that God is always leaning, always has been leaning in my direction."

Set in early 1970s Harlem, "If Beale Street Could Talk," tells the story of daughter and wife-to-be Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt, who goes by the nickname Fonny. Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together, but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit.

"If Beal Street Could Talk" is now playing on Amazon Prime.

'The Man in the High Castle': The Fourth and Final Season Coming to Amazon Video

The fourth and final season of Amazon's "The Man in the High Castle" will premiere this fall. The final season is currently being filmed in Vancouver and will wrap next month.

"The undertaking of High Castle has been simply extraordinary from the start: the seven years it took to land an ideal home at Amazon - the behind-the-scenes artistry which has been as awe-inspiring to experience as hopefully the work on-screen so powerfully delivered - and an audience whose high standard to meet was our unyielding goal," said executive producer David Zucker. "It's all gratitude to the talent, who persevered and so masterfully excelled, to Amazon for their deep support, and to Isa and her team, for the trust and valued partnership in which we've thrived every step of the way."

Meanwhile, Reichsmarschall John Smith (Rufus Sewell) will be drawn towards the portal the Nazis have built to another universe and the tantalizing possibility of stepping through a gateway to the path not taken.
