July 23 (UPI) -- Beverly Hills, 90210 star Jason Priestley says the show's upcoming reboot will be "very different" from the original series.
The 49-year-old actor discussed the new Fox series BH90210 during Tuesday's episode of Good Morning America ahead of its premiere.
"[It's] very different," Priestley said of the reboot. "It's a show within a show, within a show, within a show. It's very meta and it's very multi-layered."
"Fans of the original show will find it incredibly satisfying," he added.
"Luke was a big personality and a big part of that show, and the difficulty for us was to honor him in a way that didn't feel exploitative," Priestley said. "Hopefully we were successful in that."
Beverly Hills, 90210 had a 10-season run on Fox from 1990 to 2000 and previously inspired The CW reboot 90210. BH90210 premieres Aug. 7 and released a poster and teaser trailer this month.
