Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this spin-off of '90s teen sensation Beverly Hills, 90210 is edgier than the original series -- but just as soapy and unrealistic. Along with over-the-top opulent lifestyles, rampant materialism, and constant relationship issues, it prominently features behavior like underage drinking, promiscuity, and substance abuse. There's also lots of strong sexual innuendo and iffy language ("bitch," "ass"). Themes like pornography, pregnancy, and other mature issues are also part of the plotlines.

Sexual Content

Some strong sexual innuendo, including strong visual references to teens performing oral sex. Frequent scenes of teens kissing/making out. Storylines include cheating, one-night stands, and dealing with an unexpected pregnancy. Navid's father is a major porn film producer; child pornography is discussed (no graphic footage is shown).


Occasionally cast member punch each other in the face. Others shove, push, wrestle, and slap each other. Images from violent video games visible.


Language includes words like "ass" and "bitch."

Social Behavior

Lots of lying, backstabbing, break ups, and hook ups. Although overall it's an unrealistic, glamorized portrayal of teens, it also presents some real issues that teenagers deal with, including addiction, racism, teen pregnancy, academic cheating, and peer pressure.


Brands like Chanel and Mercedes-Benz are prominently visible. Products like Dr. Pepper also get obvious placement. The series features music from various up-and-coming bands, like Tilly and the Wall. Some tie-in products (nail polish, etc.) are available.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Lots of underage drinking visible, at bars and at home. Grandmother Tabitha appears to be an alcoholic. One character has a drug problem and is shown buying pills and engaging in some negative behavior as a result of her addiction.
