Gillian Zinser of the CW ‘s hit teen drama “90210” will not be returning for season 5 next fall, reports claimed on Wednesday.
According to TV Line , Gillian will not be back as a regular character next season, although she will probably return as a guest star. However, the number of episodes she will appear in is unclear at this time.
Gillian plays hippie surfer girl Ivy, who was last seen on the show taking off with her new boyfriend, Diego, to Mexico. Diego was about to be deported for not having legal papers to stay in the U.S. so Ivy decided to go back to his country with him.
The 26-year-old actress first joined the “90210” cast in a recurring role on season 2 and was promoted to a series regular for season 3. It is not known why she got a demotion so soon, but it’s possibly due to Ivy’s story lines not being intertwined enough with the rest of the characters.
“90210” was recently picked up for its 5th season during the CW upfronts last week, but will be moved from Tuesday to Monday night this fall at 8:00 p.m. on the CW.
