Jennie Garth to Stay; Shannen Doherty to Go

by at . Comments

Brenda was nowhere to be seen on this week's episode of 90210.

And that may be something fans need to get used to, as Michael Ausiello is reporting that Shannen Doherty has turned down the chance to extend her stay on the series. She'll be on three more episodes and that's it.

"They asked me to do a lot more," Doherty said, but "I'm in the middle of pitching a show, [so] I couldn't commit to more than [I did]."

Conversely, Kelly isn't going anywhere for awhile (which is good; she's got a four-year old to look after!): Jennie Garth has agreed to film five episodes beyond the six she had originally agreed to. We wonder if this means her romance with Ryan Matthews (Ryan Eggold) will really take off.

Are you sad to see Shannen do? Are you glad Jennie is staying?

If Shannen leaves the show so will alot of viewers thats just a opinion that seems to ring true with a lot of fans, and thats somthing that the (Powers That Be)need to relize. All though the new cast is growing on me im 30 and was totaly Beverly Hills 90210 all the way. Theres no 90210 with out Brenada and Kelly so i hope that the two stay......

The ONLY reason why I watch the "new" 90210 is because of Jennie and Shannen. I will stop watching the show if they leave. Period.

I only watch for Shannen. I quit watching after season 4 on the original. I tried but the heart and soul of the show was gone. The current writers need to let Shannen be old style Brenda and show the newbies how it's done.

Brenda needs to stay. That's why i tuned it this time around, unless she runs off to be with dylan - that's ok by me. I don't care if he does have a kid with kelly (after what she did years ago) she deserves it. Plus the way kelly has always jumped on every guy in the zip code, that kid could belong to anyone just because she claims it's dylan doesn't mean anything to me.

I agree, the show will not be the same if Shannon leaves now and Jenne goes later. I don't think the show has the same "it" factor it did back in 89! Right now there are 3-4 other shows that are knock off's of the orginal 90210- the OC, One Tree Hill, American Teenager.... this show will sink if the old crew doesn't stick around.

I wanted to watch the show a lot because of her, because I loved Brenda and was really nostalgic... but now i'm a bit sad she's leaving again

no EFFING way. she CANNOT leave. the only reason why this show is even half-as good as the old one is because of Shannen and Jennie. If these two both do not return, I'm afraid that I am officially done with watching the new 90210.

I STOPPED WATCHING THE FIRST TIME SHE LEFT. 90210 IS SHANNEN AND THE SHOW WOULD BE A HUGE SUCCESS WITH HER. SHE NEEDS TO COME BACK. HER CHARACTER HAS ALOT OF UNFINISHED BUSINESS. WHAT HAPPENED WHEN SHE WAS IN EUROPE WITH DYLAN? WHEN IS SHE FINALLY GONNA GET HER REVENGE ON KELLY- OLD NEWS BUT AN UNFINISH STORY. THE NEW 90210 LOOKS LIKE IT WOULD BE A NICE SHOW. BUT THERE WAS SO MUCH UNFINISHED STORYLINE WITH THE ORIGINAL SERIES. BRENDA/SHANNEN COME BACK!!!!!!!!!!!
