TVLine has learned exclusively that Gillian Zinser will not be returning to 90210 as a series regular for the soap’s fifth season.
The downgrade should come as little surprise considering Ivy was last seen running away to Mexico with her soon-to-be deported boyfriend, Diego, in the show’s season finale.

A CW rep maintains that Zinser will return as a guest star, although it’s unclear for how many episodes.
Zinser joined the just-renewed CW soap in early Season 2 as West Bev’s token hippie-chic surfer girl.
