Debuting in 1990, ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ follows twins Brandon and Brenda Walsh and their strenuous yet eventful lives as they deal not only with being teens but also with the culture shock of being uprooted from their Minneapolis hometown to a very glamorous and swanky town in California. ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ has seasoned to be one of the greatest shows and is adored by many. The show, since debuting in 1990, grew season by season to be a critical success. Breaking the pre-conceived stereotypical notions of sex, date rape, homophobia, animal rights, alcoholism, drug abuse, domestic violence, eating disorders, anti-Semitism, racism, teenage suicide, teenage pregnancy, and AIDS, the shoe is perhaps the most unabashed and brazen representation of the formative teenage years.
For this list, I have taken into shows which a based on similar foundation of thematic elements such as the teenage angst and anxiety considering the drama and family surrounding it. So, without further ado, here is the list of TV series similar to shows like Beverly Hills, 90210 that are my recommendations. You can watch several of these TV shows like 90210 on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
12. Riverdale (2016- )
Developed by American playwright and screenwriter Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, ‘Riverdale’ is an offspring of characters based on the ‘Archie’ comics with a pinch of dramatic allegory. The show follows the dark and twisted adventures of a group of friends in the town of the titular Riverdale. The show is a good watch and has been critically appreciated. However, one problem which brings down the show is the poor depiction of minority characters and groups. However, it is a good watch for teen drama fans and brings a new edge in the lovable and lustrous Archie characters.
