Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair, the new woman in charge of 90210, told Michael Ausiello a few days ago that the show's second season would be "significantly" different than the first.
This just in: she wasn't kidding!
Sources have confirmed that Dustin Milligan, who plays lead character Ethan, won't return as a regular cast member in the fall.
The decision is reportedly 100% storyline driven, an insider told Ausiello.
"Everyone loves Dustin. There was just a feeling that the character had run its course."
The news comes days after TV Fanatic was one of the first outlets to report that Matt Lanter will be promoted to a series regular next season.
"The show tried to be a lot of things to a lot of people in its first season," she said. "I think the center lies with the generation of kids that are in high school now. I'm not interested in casting people for stunt value.
"The advantage of having one person - me - [in charge] is that scripts, what happens on the set, casting... it all speaks in one voice."
What do you think of what that voice is saying so far, fans?
