Jennie Garth is returning to her famed zip code in the CW's 90210 spinoff, but will her reel and real foe Shannen Doherty be joining her?

No confirmation yet, but should it happen, Jennie says she won’t be opposed to sharing the screen with her former co-star.

"If Shannen comes to do the show... Excellent,” Jennie tells Extra. “The fans would love it. I'm a big girl. I can handle anything."

The actresses famously feuded during their time together on Beverly Hills 90210, even getting into a catfight, Tori Spelling claimed in her memoir, sTORItelling.

Tori herself is also gunning for a return as Donna Martin and reveals she’s thisclose to signing the dotted line.

"I've been in talks with them,” she says. “They have approached me and so I'm hoping it works out.”

With or without Shannen or Tori, Jennie is pumped to reprise her role as Kelly Taylor – a part she played for 10 years.

"I am coming back as Kelly Taylor," Jennie says. "I can't even believe it. I haven't even said it out loud."

Shannen Doherty

The 36-year-old will be a recurring guest star on the series, which also stars another iconic 90s actress – Full House’s Lori Loughlin, who is shocked by the fan reception.

"The fans are losing their minds," she says. "How exciting is this? It's such a great franchise, such a big success the first time around. Hopefully we can do it justice."
