Tristan Wilds (The Wire) has landed the male lead in the CW’s Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff.

The show centres on the Mills, a three-generation Beverly Hills family whose teen kids, daughter Annie (Shenae Grimes) and adopted boy Dixon (Wilds) attend West Beverly Hills High.

Also joining the cast is Michael Steger (The Winner), who will play Navid, producer of the school’s closed-circuit newscast and student politician.

There’s been speculation that Jennie Garth, a cast member on the original series, may reprise her role on the spinoff.
