A 90210 spokesperson confirms that Loughlin and Eggold’s contract options have not been picked up and their romantically-linked characters — matriarch Deb and teacher Ryan — will exit at season’s end. The rep adds that 90210‘s fourth season will find the West Bev crew transitioning to college, which means there will be less emphasis on teachers and parents.
The departures of Loughlin and Eggold, combined with last season’s exit of Rob Estes (and to a lesser extent Jennie Garth), leaves 90210 without a single full-time adult character. Translation: Party time!!!
Thoughts? Will you miss Deb and Ryan? Does it make sense for the show to put all of the emphasis on the kids? Sound off below!
