Season 3 of teen soap Beverly Hills, 90210 aired on FOX.


The summer before senior year begins with Brenda and boyfriend Dylan are still deeply in love, much to the chagrin of Brenda's disapproving parents. To force a little distance, they send Brenda to Paris for the summer with Donna, herself the subject of a French modeling subplot — while halfway around the world Dylan and Kelly discover a growing mutual attraction and begin an illicit summer fling. The seniors deal with the beginning of the rest of their lives while David struggles with accepting the fact that his friends will soon leave for college while he is stuck in high school and decides to fast track in order to catch up.


The series continues to plug along at a rapid and highly dramatic pace. This season, the gang tackles eating disorders, gambling addiction, birth, death, incest, infidelity, car accidents, racism, homelessness, and one whopper of a love triangle, along with, of course, the standard high school fare of college applications, SAT scores, and graduation anxiety. 90210 continues to revolve around Minnesota transplants Brandon and Brenda Walsh, though with every season the twins’ Midwestern roots seem to matter a little less. Also the season points more view on the other characters (apart from the twins) and shows character development on Kelly Taylor.
