90210 fans were excited to see Tori Spelling and Jenni Garth reunited on the small screen, but it seems it was short-lived.
According to a new report from TVLine, the ABC Family show Mystery Girls will not be renewed for a second season, although the network reps have yet to officially confirm itâs been canceled.
Mystery Girls debuted on June 25 â just six months after Spellingâs personal life crumbled when her husband Dean McDermott was caught in a two day affair with Canadian woman Emily Goodhand â to just 0.76 million viewers.
The show continued to plummet in ratings and only brought in 500,000 viewers for its season finale on Aug. 27. Besides reality TV shows, this was Spellingâs first lead on a sitcom show in more than seven years.
The reality show that followed Tori Spellingâs journey to navigate through hubby Dean McDermottâs infidelity was such a hit that the Lifetime Channel has renewed the couple to star in a second season, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
After allowing cameras to follow her through some of her darkest days, Spelling and McDermott began filming another season of True Tori today as the former 90210 star looks to regain the âhonesty and happinessâ she once had with her husband.
The series will feature eight episodes and Spelling will focus on âhealing herself and dealing head-on with the issues that have plagued her for years,â the network told Radar.
âWhile much of the chaos of last spring is seemingly behind her, there still exists a tremendous amount of work ahead for Tori as she struggles to find her true self,â Lifetime said.
Season 2 of True Tori premieres October 21 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
Tori Spelling shared some family pics â including husband Dean McDermott and their four kids Liam, 7, Stella, 6, Hattie, nearly 3, and Finn, 2 â at her youngest childâs pickup truck-themed birthday party.
âI still canât believe that my littlest one is already two years old. I feel like it was just yesterday that we were heading to the hospital to welcome him into this world,â Tori writes on her website.
âAnyways, a couple weekends ago we celebrated Finnâs big birthday with a beachside party in Malibu. Finn loves trucks, so the partyâs theme was all about pickup trucks,â she shares. âAnd like at any party we have, the amazing Elizabeth Messina was there to capture all of the special moments. Here are her pictures of our day celebrating Finnâs birthday!â
The mom-of-four also shared an image from the party via Instagram.
âThanks @idvproducts @TheSnackeez for hosting my son Finnâs 2nd birthday party! So much fun! #Snackeez 2-in-1 snacking solution for kids,â she captioned the family pic.
The actress appeared to be in good spirits and smartly donned a bathing suit for the big moment. Spelling’s two older children, Liam and Stella, were father Dean McDermott’s helpers and poured a giant orange tub of freezing cold water on the blonde.
After the initial shock, Spelling nominated her mother to take the challenge herself. The former Beverly Hills, 90120 star’s mother has yet to respond.
“My friends Bill & Scout (aka The Guncles) nominated me to take the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money and awareness for ALS,” she explained on her website. “It was freezing cold but totally worth it!”

Tori Spelling can crack Jennie Garth up.
When thinking of an upcoming scene from their new ABC Family sitcom, “Mystery Girls,” now airing Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET, Garth giggles at the memory of Spelling going for it, making a funny face and using a strange voice.
That’s just one reason the two like to work together.
“I feel safe doing some, like, goofy, crazy face and voice because it’s my friend. I know she’s gonna be there to support my efforts,” explained Spelling in a recent interview.
“She knows I love it,” added Garth, who readily admits she’s the first to break character in a scene.
Unless you skipped the 1990s, you know they were co-stars on one of the most popular TV shows of that era, “Beverly Hills, 90210,” about teens living in the exclusive Southern California zip code.
It went off the air after 10 seasons in 2000 but Spelling and Garth have remained friends. They even briefly reprised their roles for the CW’s “90210″ reboot. Spelling guest starred on a couple of episodes. Garth appeared on the first two seasons.
They never expected to work together full-time again but Spelling came up for the premise and it all fell into place.
On “Mystery Girls,” Garth and Spelling play former co-stars of a hit 90s detective TV show of the same name. They’ve gone their separate ways, until a crime occurs, and the witness will only talk to them. From this, they end up opening a detective agency.
Both actresses also serve as executive producers. They have their hand in the show’s look, wardrobe and “every little thing,” said Spelling.
“Our personalities are (to be) micro-managers. We can’t delegate that much but we’re learning,” she said.
The two say they rarely disagree on decisions but Garth will defer to Spelling sometimes “because it was her idea.”
They chose to do a sitcom because, “it’s more fun than doing a drama,” said Garth. “The schedule, the hours. We both have a lot of kids so it’s like banker’s hours compared to doing an episodic show like an hour-long drama or something.”
For Spelling, having a sitcom was a career goal.
“I did the best I could on ’90210.’ Like I tried to make Donna funny. I was in a drama. Everyone else was great at drama but I was like, ‘I think I’m better at comedy so how can I interject comedy here and there?’ and so Donna was kind of goofy and I did things here and there but I was always, this is harder for me. I wish I could do comedy.”
The gig also comes at a good time for Spelling’s personal life. Her recent marriage struggles with actor Dean McDermott have been documented both in the press and on the Lifetime docu-series, “True Tori.” On that, cameras followed Spelling in the aftermath of learning her husband had an affair and he subsequently went to rehab.
Spelling says it’s undecided whether there will be more “True Tori.”
“It was something that I needed to do. … I don’t know what the future holds,” she said.
With all the rumors swirling around her personal life, she felt it was best to document what was happening on camera: “It was the best vehicle to tell my truth.” Still, putting her personal problems on display can seem strange to some.
To that Spelling says, “It was something I needed to do so don’t feel bad.”
To say that Tori Spelling and Dean McDermottâs marriage has been rocky as of late is a bit of an understatement. In a new interview, even Dean admits that he expected Tori to leave him!
Tori Spelling and Dean McDermottâs marriage basically imploded when it was revealed that Dean had cheated on Tori while he was filming in Canada at the tail-end of 2013. True Tori was a revealing â even too revealing â look at their marriage in the aftermath, and what we saw was not good. In a new interview, Dean admits that he expected Tori to divorce him once the scandal broke! Read on for more on the state of Tori and Deanâs marriage post-scandal, and post-True Tori! (Itâs hard to say which was more damaging to their relationship.)
Dean McDermott Surprised Tori Spelling Didnât Divorce Him After Cheating Scandal
âI wake up every morning and Iâm just so blessed that sheâs in my life still,â Dean told Giuliana Rancic on E! News â[Tori]âs such a strong lady, and when this happened I was like, âWhy donât you just leave me?ââ
Trust us â everyone was asking that question. However, with four kids, itâs understandable that Tori wanted to fight to try and keep the marriage alive.
âAnd sheâs like, âWell, I love you, I canât just turn that off,ââ Dean added. ââIâm mad at you, Iâm really upset, Iâm really hurt â but I love you. That just doesnât go away.â
âWeâre trying to show people that if that love is still there, love can conquer all and love does conquer all. Itâs just going to take a lot of work and a lot of tears and a lot of pain.â
Dean McDermott: âThings Are Greatâ Between Tori & I
âThings are great,â Dean revealed to Giuliana earlier in their interview. âOur relationship is stronger than itâs ever been and weâre working very hard on that. Iâm working very hard on myself â my sobriety, it means everything to me, becoming the dad and the husband that Iâve always wanted to be and that they deserveâŠ Iâm changing my life for the good.â
Also worth noting is the fact that Dean looked a lot healthier than weâve seen him recently. During True Toriâs filming (and even prior to that) he had certainly been looking like the drink had been taking its toll; often red-faced and puffy, it was clear that his health was getting away from him as much as his relationship was.
