Shenae Grimes Teases "Surprising" Season Three Developments on 90210

at . Comments

Annie ran over a homeless man and killed him to conclude season one of 90210.

Ironically, this became the storyline that simply won't die. Fans have been distressed with the length of time it dragged on for, as well as the fact that it culminated in... nothing. Annie simply decided to confess to her parents on the season finale.

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, though, Shenae Grimes says there's STILL more to come.

"I was really happy with the way our show runner, Rebecca [Sinclair], chose to handle the situation," she said. "While everyone else [was] going through their momentary incidents and dramas, this [was] kind of lingering with me the entire season, which was kind of daunting.

"She really played up the subtlety. But, we do finally get closure for Annie, or at least we think we do. Of course, no show will end in that pretty little package. So there are many surprises that you’ll see."

Please, 90210 writers, make them worthwhile.

Boat Ride

Grimes said the storyline's resolutions will bring in other characters, as well. Here are more snippets from the interview:

On the involvement of other characters: "We’ve gotten the hint that it may involve Teddy because of the whole license plate thing at the very beginning of the season... It does play kind of a key factor in the resolution of it all or the lack thereof. But it certainly involves more people and hopefully takes the onus off of Annie’s shoulders."

Will Jasper return? I have no idea. There’s no real indication as to where the character will go.

On Annie and Liam: The story doesn’t really evolve the way you think it will. They’re kind of misleading you a bit. The relationship and the closeness that Annie and Liam are forming is much more than just any physical attraction... I don’t think it will be the demise of Naomi and Annie again.

The finale sucked. The Vampire Diaries and Grey's finales were great. (especially Grey's... Shonda Rhimes knows how to make great season finales!)


I don't understand why you guys don't like Annie-Liam together!!! They're so cute!! And i don't think that the writers will make Naomi-Annie to fight again.....The finale was really shocking, and i liked it!! And for those who compare 90210 with BH 90210, you have to understand that 90210 has moved on from its original series! It's a spin-off of that show, but it is really different...So, just stop comparing it! I really like 90210 and i'm really excited for season 3..Now that the cw changed its timeslot from Tuesday to Monday it will have better ratings, i hope! After all, It got out of American Idol's way....Yeah!!


EW please no! cant annie get someone who hasnt dated naomi before?


Liam and Annie would make a great couple!! I'm excited for season 3!!


please please get ade and navid to marry! i love then together! and teddy and silver are perfect. and i like liam and annie together! naomi gets on my nerves..sorry naomi lovers. she thinks about herself too much. but i would too if i had parents and a sister like her. and the finale was awesome! i hope liam smashed jaspers head in!


WTF? No Annie and Liam? That is so lame, they have great chemistry. Close the hit and run storyline, and lets move on!!! BH 90210 use to be my favorite show, and this one is just disappointing me.


i thought it was amazing, and i am glad to hear there is more to the plot with the hit and run, because otherwise the way they handled it on the finale was poorly done, and we all wanted ANSWERS. other than that i loved the finale, so i'm glad for this reassuring news.


btw naomi is the only reason i will b watching 90210 next season


i cant wait for 3.5 months!! good thing pretty little liars is starting in couple of weeks to keep me busy :)


I'll keep watching. I hated the season finale because of the "shocker" at the end of it and the whole "Annie-Liam" thing. I can't wait for next season to see what happens with Naomi. She's my favorite character in the series.
The show is good and it managed to keep my attention so far. I won't just give up because I didn't like the way season 2 ended.
I hope season 3 will be back with some heat...
