90210 to Shake Up Cast; Does AnnaLynne McCord Want Out?

at . Comments

Changes are coming to 90210.

With new showrunners Patti Carr and Lara Olsen on board, AnnaLynne McCord made it very clear in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly: many cast members will not be returning.

“That’s something we’ve been told,” the actress confirmed. “I think their reasoning for thinking they might slim down the cast is because it might be too much going with having people in different places."

Max and Naomi Picture

We already know that Debbie and Ryan are gone. Based on events from the finale, it would be easy to write out Liam. And perhaps Adrianna will be shipped off to therapy?

But with such a major development affecting Naomi to conclude season three, no way McCord is going anywhere... right?

Possibly wrong, however.

The actress told the magazine that she isn't very enthusiastic any longer about her role on 90210.

“Honestly, after about three years on a show, you’re like, ‘Thank you very much for giving me a step up. Now can I go do movies?’” she said. “We love our job and we love our fans especially, but you’re always ready for that moment when you can break free. I don’t know who’s going to be lucky, the ones who stay or go. We haven’t decided yet.”

Could the show write out Naomi? Sure, she's having Max's baby and could move across the country to be with him. Should the show write out Naomi? Would you still watch? Sound off now in our Comments section and in our 90210 forum!

"When 90210 first started, Annie was the main character, the core, the entire show revolved around her and her life. But as time passed, Naomi became the show's core" The "entire" show never revolved around Annie. Plenty of characters were given separate story lines that weren't at all dependent on her. Annie and Dixon were just seen as the 'leads' at first because they were the new arrivals. That said, Naomi once had the most interesting material, but to this day, they continually waste her potential on silly boy-chasing stories and corny one-liners. There's little character development with her anymore. She's hit-and-miss.


If Naomi left 90210 the show would be so empty. There would be an obvious void. Annie was originally suppose to be the shows leading lady but Naomi somehow ended up coming out as such, I think the Ethan exit & late Liam introduction had a lot to do with that which effected the storyline Annie would've gotten or had had Liam been there from the beginning, but given he was put with Naomi when he arrived because they had to finish out the Annie/Ethan storyline, that sort of gave Naomie leading lady shine & while I enjoyed watching Naomi & Liam together, I find Annie & Liam to be a much better couple. All original cast members should stay. The only one I wouldnt be sad to see go would be Navid because he's become obnoxiously annoying & arrogant. I love Ivy's character & think Ethan should return.


Naomi and Liam should be together, they make lovely couple. bring Ethan


no you shouldnt get rid of annie and liam , they make a really cute couple i think you should get rid of teddy hes a boring character he does'nt really do much, and keep the rest.


Get rid of Annie, Liam, and Naomi get rid of ALL of my friends who watch it. ALso get rid of the relationship between annie and liam, you loose soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many viewers.


Annie and Liam have to stay on as a couple because then that would be ruining the show if they didn't. Adrianna Tries to win everyone back but fails and then she lives her life. Debbie and Ryan leave. Dixon might as well go because nothing much else can happen with him unless there will be a love triangle with him, silver, and navid. Please please please pleaase keep Annie on. Also liam. And naomi is a terrific advantage to the show. please keep most of the same cast but shaking it up will cause an earthquake and that will loose you most of the viewers. Thanks


i don't think the show would be good without Annie, Liam, Naomi, or Dixon. They all started the show and i think they should finish. Ya! I think spicing it up a bit is good but that much will cause a huge loss of viewers. Changes are good but too many after only one season is biting off way more than you can chew.


aww,,, naomi & max so cute 2gether... adriana sooo boring


If Naomi leaves i definatly wont be watching any more, her and max are by far my favorite couple! I think her being pregnant is great and i cant wait to see what happens next!!!!!
