It’s almost been a decade since “Beverly Hills, 90210”, was on, but hey, it’s never too late for a spinoff.

The CW is developing a contemporary update of the popular ’90s teen soap with possibly a bit of sass since “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas is in talks to write the project.

Plotwise, there’s not much to tell yet, but the network should be deciding whether to order a pilot by month’s end.

If this deal goes through, it would bring Thomas back into The CW fold after “Veronica Mars” ended its three-season run last spring. He had attempted a fourth season of the show with a time jump, setting the tiny sleuth in the FBI Academy, but it didn’t fly.

“90210” previously spawned another spinoff, the equally popular “Melrose Place”,  “90210” has had a revival of sorts with two members of its cast — Jennie Garth and Ian Ziering — appearing on ABC’s “Dancing WIth the Stars”  and Tori Spelling getting her own reality attention with “Tori & Dean: Inn Lover.”

Since “90210” revolved around the young and wealthy in Beverly Hills, the spinoff could be a good companion to “Gossip Girl,” which has a similar premise but set on the East Coast in Manhattan.
