Deadline: “Fresh off the buzzy premiere of BH90210, the Peach Pit pop-up restaurant inspired by the classic Beverly Hills 90210 will keep its doors open due to high demand. Originally developed by Fox and Pop Sugar to promote the highly-anticipated revival, the Peach Pit pop-up in Los Angeles sold out its two-day weekend run in less than an hour. On the heels the popular demand and the debut of the show, CBS Consumer Products teamed with the team behind the Saved by the Max and Good Burger to extend the run of the pop-up which will reopen its doors on August 16 and they will remain open through the end of September.”
