Phew! They had us scared there, for a minute!

We were equal parts shocked and disappointed to learn that Trevor Donovan's contract was not renewed for the fourth season of 90210, and that his character, Teddy - who had one of the only storylines last year that was authentic and worked - was getting written out!

However, according to an interview with the CW drama's new showrunners, Patti Carr and Lara Olsen, that is not the case, and he WILL in fact, be sticking around - just not for as many episodes!

AnnaLynne McCord said the actors were notified in the spring that the cast would be cut down in Season 4. Trevor Donovan, who plays Teddy, will be in fewer episodes. Is there anyone we won't be seeing when the show returns?

Carr: The studio heads had talked about whether or not all the cast would be brought back, but they left that to the creative decisions about where the characters would go and what the story lines would be. We wound up having great story lines for all of the characters — so all of them are returning. I know there is sort of a technical difference in Trevor's deal but he's a major character for us. We love Teddy and we've got a really great story line for him.
Olsen: He will be there for multiple episodes.
Carr: I just think the studio's concern is that it's hard to service that number of characters in every episode, and we understand that, but we had such great stories for everyone and so we're not losing any cast members.

Is there anyone besides Donovan who is coming back in a reduced capacity?

Olsen: No, Teddy is the only one who won't be in every episode. The story line of Teddy being gay was handled so well last year, it was so much of a non-stereotype, that it was really important to us to keep writing for that character.
Carr: We don't have it all broken out moving forward, but he has a really significant arc. He's in the premiere. That story [about Donovan's contract] was put out there like he wasn't coming back, or worse, like we were eliminating him, and that was not the intention at all.

Can you tell us anything about what will be going on with Teddy when the show returns?

Olsen: With Teddy's character, with all of the characters really, this season is about identity and figuring out who you are as you're growing into an adult. For Teddy, that is even more complicated because he has this huge other factor having recently admitted he's gay.
Carr: We can tell you this: Last season he realized he was gay and he came out to his friends, but he hasn't come out to his family. That's the next hurdle for him. That's what he's wresting with. Teddy contacts his family to let them know he's gay. There are family members who react to that news.

Will he still be dating Marco (Freddie Smith)?

Carr: No, that relationship ended over the summer. But he will have other prospects on the horizon!

Aww! Too bad! He was cute!

But we're SO relieved to hear that Teddy will be getting some significant stories this year!

It's still unfathomable to us that he'd be cut down when we're still being tortured with absolutely useless characters like Adrianna, but hopefully the new showrunners will continue to push the series in smart and innovative directions!

We're keeping our fingers crossed!

What do U think?? Are U tuning in for 90210 this season?

    i would have to dissagree with this, i mean teddy is an increbidly story LIKE EVERYBODY'S ELSES , i love teddy character but i love even more adrianna it brings so much drama to the serie this has to be fictional , come on it's not a reality you don't need to attack those characters



  2. 2

    Good to hear. It was one of the best storylines on there - and definitely the most realistic

    Adrianna's USELESS? She's the primary source of this show's drama, and she's the most complex and interesting character. Also, Jessica Lowndes is the most talented and best looking actor on this show.

    Teddy, on the other hand, is useless. After he officially came out of the closet, he lost all relevance to this show. He had served his purpose, and the writers clearly no longer cared about him. And you act like Teddy's gay storyline is original when it's actually been done on plenty of other shows with much better actors.

    Best story line this show ever had. The rest is unwatchable. I pray they write relevant storylines for him with substance



  7. 7

    If this is true I am beyond excited, I want Trevor Donovan to get me pregnant



  8. 8

    He's the hottest guy on the show, they would be stupid to keep Teddy off, but I still rather see him on another show.
