90210 Casting Cut: Trevor Donovan Out as Series Regular

by at . Comments

90210 has made its first casting cut.

Last month, AnnaLynne McCord said stars had been informed that the show would be making changes. TV Line now reports a major one: Trevor Donovan is out as a series regular.

Totally Out

Donovan's Teddy was a major focus of season three, as he came out of the closet and won Prom King. Viewers haven't seen the last of him, at least, as insiders say the character will appear on approximately five episodes.

Said Donovan in a statement:

“I look back on getting this real-life story line as a blessing. To be able to simultaneously take on a challenging role and bring awareness to a relevant social issue was a win-win for me. I’m looking forward to what opportunities and adventures lie ahead.”

What do you think of this casting move? Weigh in now!

I've been thinking. Perhaps Teddy will be the only cut?
Ryan Eggold and Lori Loughlin were cut at the end of season 3 and now with Teddy going, there will only be 8 cast members left. I think if they cut anyone else, it'll be Adrianna or Ivy. I strongly believe they won't get rid of any of the original cast they have left.
I feel as though Adrianna will get her big break in film and leave that way OR if it's Ivy, they'll kill of Raj and she'll go travel or something to try and find peace and get on with Raj's death.

Wow... Really? Are you kidding me?! I FINALLY started to like Teddy and now they're kicking him out? Why not kick out Dixon? 3 seasons and I never likes Dixon ONCE!! Not to mention he was totally irrelevant this year!! Oh wait they probably just kept him cause he's the only black guy in a basically all white ppl show... Seriously though Teddy, Naomi, Ivy, and Annie were my favorites this year and they already took out one of my favorites, Annalyn doesn't want to come back so maybe no Naomi, which at the end scene of this season was really lame btw cause they r using the pregnant storyline to DEATH and I think it will make Naomi boring to have a child! But anyways Teddy was the ONLY interesting guy this year! Liam has been boring ever since season 2, Navid was also boring since season 2, and I've always hated Dixon since the whole silver bipolar episode in season 1, Teddy FINALLY became a non-douchebag and they take him out!! WTF new producers!!! WTF!

Whether you guys like it or not, Ade will likely be staying. She's the primary source of this show's drama. And if Ade leaves, then what's the point of keeping Navid around? His character is NOTHING without her.

In addition to my comment, I had no problem with Teddy or his new found sexuality, but even if some people stop watching due to this cut, other people may watch because they're glad that a homosexual character if off the screen. I'll admit that I like Teddy and I liked his character, but I generally think people stopped watching because he was gay and people would not want to feel forced to watch it. However, I for one applaud it. :)
