  • There have been many interviews where the cast claims that they did not get along with Shannen Doherty. Jennie Garth is no exception, as she stated in Tori Spelling's E! True Hollywood Story that she and Shannen "chose to not get along." Jennie and Shannen showed no signs of animosity in the reunion, but this could be testimony to the acting talents of both women.

  • This special marks the first time that Shannen Doherty has taken part in a 90210 retrospective. She had initially agreed to participate in The Final Goodbye in 2000 (Tori Spelling said in a magazine interview that she had taped something for the show), but backed out forcing her face to be whited out in clips.

  • The bulk of the special was a discussion between Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Jennie Garth and Luke Perry. James Eckhouse, Carol Potter and Joe E. Tata joined in for a few minutes toward the close of the show. Tori Spelling and Brian Austin Green were seen in episode clips and mentioned several times, but chose not to participate due to "other projects."
