The residents of the most famous zip code on television will reportedly be bringing the drama back to the small screen very soon.

Original cast member Tori Spelling accidentally broke the news that Beverly Hills, 90210, is getting another reboot. Of course, like many of the recent revivals of TV shows and movies from the 80s and 90s, there will be some major plot twists.

"We were having coffee in between meetings with networks,” she said on Access Friday, before adding: “It’s confirmed. We’re doing a new 90210.”

Realizing that she might have said too much, Spelling asked, "Did I just confirm something that wasn’t known?”

The actress, who portrayed the easy-going Donna Martin from 1990 to 2000, revealed some more interesting details about the reboot during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

Since the show had already been revived before (2008 to 2013), fans have been worried about how the showrunners plan to keep the story fresh, but they've found a solution.

Spelling, whose father Aaron was one of the original show's executive producers, explained that having original characters play themselves in a fictional-behind-the-scenes will make the story more unique.

“Jennie Garth and I were like, ‘What would be something fun?’ and so we decided what would it be like if an entire ensemble cast played themselves,” she said.

She continued, "This is the first time an entire cast will be playing heightened versions, so people would be going, ‘What’s fictional, what’s not fictional?' [It will be a] blend about doing the behind the scenes of a reboot, so don’t worry — all the fans will get to see scenes within scenes so they won’t be disappointed."

Spelling went on to hint at the fact that the original cast would be returning, and fans will "see [the characters] Donna and David, but they’ll also see [the real people], Tori and Brian and Jennie and everyone else."

While Tori's Donna, Brandon (Jason Priestley), Kelly (Jennie Garth), David (Brian Austin Green), Steve (Ian Ziering) and Andrea (Gabrielle Carteris) have signed on for the show's resurrection, it's unclear whether or not Shannen Doherty and Luke Perry will reprise their roles.

The pair played one of TV's all-time favorite couples, Brenda and Dylan.

Rumor has it that several networks are interested in the series, but there's no confirmation on which ones are in the running. Beverly Hills, 90210 ran on Fox from 1990-2000, while the reboot 90210 called CW home.

The original show defined a generation and gave way to two other spin-off series, Melrose Place and Models Inc.
