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."

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!

Not that 90210 was one of the best show in this decade or anything, but if Naomi leaves, then it truly has no chance of being picked up again.


I'm probably the oldest viewer ever of 90210 -- but I will say that for some reason I'm mesmerized by the relationship with Max and really hope that he doesn't turn out to be the creep he's starting to look like by kow-towing to his parents after he's been noble until now. I think they should keep Naomi in the show, but I have mixed feelings as I know that means that she and Max would have to break up. If they could stay together, even as an on and off thing like Kelly and Dylan then that would be best. Am I the only one who still wants the old cast to return, at least sometimes? I can't believe there aren't others who'd like to see Kelly try to choose between Brandon and Dylan? C'mon, couldn't we original viewers just get a few episodes with blasts from the past?


i will not watch the show without Naome! she my best character&i think she'll not really make it well in the movies like she's done in 90210 . i like Annie &Liam together...yes to keep season 4 interesting i need to watch Adrianna fight Silver, see Naome pregnant and leaving happily...we need to see all those other kids in college together... for the show to keep real and natural. new cast mbrs will not be appreciated unless the storyline is enlarged. otherwise the show is one of those stress relievers and basically i love it, it has helped me understand the lives of teenagers.


OMFG Annalynne's comment about "doing movies" is like right out of Naomi's mouth...so naive to think she's gonna make it big.


Given the latest season being mediocre overall, I'll only watch next season if McCord is still on. As others have said, McCord isn't the best actress (though she's certainly one of the best on 90210, Jessica Stroup is the best) but Naomi is the most interesting character (though helped by the writing) and is basically the core of the show. Naomi's storylines are long and don't just fade away. Contrast with Ade and her singing or Dixon with gambling or Annie and theatre or Navid and his studio. I think Naomi has had the most character growth/change.


Without Naomi, Silver would be useless. And without Naomi and Silver, Adrianna would be useless.


Naomi is definitely the CORE of the show!
Without her, the show will definitely experience a dramatic decline in ratings and there will not be a season 4!


it's all about Teddy for me and I don't care what he's doing I just like looking at him.


this show sucks and should be cancelled. the storylines are ok but it's too all over the place.
