90210 Scoop: Max Returns -- But There's a Twist!

Naomi Clark’s dweeby dreamboat is 90210-bound once more.

TVLine has learned that Josh Zuckerman will return to the CW soap (airing Tuesdays at 8/7c) for multiple episodes this May, reprising his role as loveable geek Max. But is he back to reclaim his ex-ladylove — who is now on the verge of marrying someone new?

Oddly enough, Max does not return with reconciliation on his mind. Rather, he’s prepping to swap vows of his own, and his bride-to-be has — unbeknownst to everyone involved — hired Naomi to plan their impending nuptials.

This turn of events will throw the reformed Mean Girl for a loop, and — in typical Naomi fashion — she’ll end up on an emotionally confusing journey in hopes of reuniting with the nerdy love of her life. (It therefore seems unlikely she’ll find her happily ever after with current fiancé Preston, played by Nick Zano.)

Zuckerman’s arc begins May 1 and will continue through the May 15 season finale.
