In the meantime, however, fans of the show should be tided over by the following scoops.

"I honestly think Dustin is such a good actor and such a lovely person. He is incredibly smart and perceptive and I loved working with him," Sinclair said. "At the end of the year [when I joined the show], I was really encouraging a dialogue between the writers and the actors and he was somebody who took me up on that. He was so thoughtful and careful about his ideas, and I was really impressed.

"So in my mind, it wasn’t about not liking Dustin, but [about] the character of Ethan. I felt [Ethan] didn’t allow me the freedom that I wanted. I really wanted a range between the characters and I didn’t feel like I could do with that character what I wanted to do with one of my core people. I think Dustin is amazing and he’ll do great. I was very honored to work with him, but he won’t be back."

As for Donna and David? Follow this article's jump to read Tori Spelling's take on that relationship.

Spelling was asked by TV Guide about her feelings on Donna and David's separation. She replied:

"It was scary at first, but I was actually open to it, just because everything's always neatly tied up in movies, and that's not the way life is. They're not divorced; they're simply separated, so there's always hope. I didn't want to devastate the fans. But there was an interesting storyline there.

"What happens when high school sweethearts get married very young, and they've been together and have only known each other and then all of a sudden their careers take off? Donna has been working, and they have kids, and sometimes your lives go in different directions. That was interesting to me."
