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.

Terrell Owens is ready to take on more TV jobs

Fresh off his first sitcom role, Terrell Owens is ready to take on more television jobs. Just don’t look for one of them to be on “Dancing With the Stars.”

“They asked me to do that last year and I graciously declined,” Owens said. “I don’t need to get on national TV to show people I can dance. I do that 16, 17 weeks out of the year. I’ve been doing it all my career.”

Owens said he’ll save his ballroom dancing skills until he gets married, whenever that may be. He added that he hasn’t watched the ABC dancing show, skipping out on NFL star Jason Taylor this season and previous years featuring former Cowboys great Emmitt Smith and Owens’ former teammate Jerry Rice.

Besides, he’s more of a sitcom guy, as evidenced by his recent gig on “Under One Roof.”

He was so giddy to watch it — and, perhaps, so motivated to help the ratings — that he turned on every television in his house.

“I thought I was going to see something different (on different TVs),” he said, laughing. “I had some friends over watching it. Everybody said I did pretty good.”

Those words were hardly out of T.O.’s mouth when teammate Tank Johnson walked by and mockingly shot back one of Owens’ lines, an indication he was tuned in, too.

“I think I surprised a lot of people with my performance,” Owens said. “For me, I feel like I can act. That’s what I want to do. If I wasn’t really comfortable with it and didn’t think I could really do it, then I wouldn’t have done it.”

Owens said he grew up watching “Good Times” and “The Cosby Show,” but as a budding thespian he feels there’s room to grow. He mentioned having hung out recently with his pal Jamie Foxx, and noted the success of The Rock, a former college football player. He said some friends are teasingly calling him “Denzel.”

“I think comedy was a good start,” he said. “I don’t really see myself limiting myself just to comedy.”
