Beverly Hills, 90210: Jennie Garth Is Finished with CW’s 90210

Jennie GarthFor fans of Beverly Hills, 90210, one of the main reasons to watch CW’s 90210 was seeing some of the original actors. Brenda Walsh (Shannen Doherty), Donna Martin Silver (Tori Spelling), Jackie Taylor (Ann Gillespie), and the Peach Pit’s Nat Bussichio (Joe E. Tata) each stopped by for a few episodes.

Jennie Garth, who plays Kelly Taylor, was essentially a series regular in the first season of 90210 and many viewers got wrapped up in trying to guess who fathered her four-year-old son — Brandon (Jason Priestley) or Dylan (Luke Perry). Neither man were seen on-camera but Kelly did reunite with daddy Dylan off-screen.

Kelly has been helping to raise her half-sister, Erin (Jessica Stroup), and dealing with her alcoholic mother’s battle with breast cancer. Jackie Taylor lost her battle recently and mother and daughters were able to make amends before she passed.

Should Garth continue being on 90210?

While Garth has had plenty to do on 90210 in the past, don’t expect to see her when new episodes return on March 9th.

This weekend, Access Hollywood asked her about the news that Ryan O’Neil would be appearing on the show. Garth was surprised by the casting news and admitted that she’s actually done with the spin-off. She said, “I’m not really doing it anymore… [haven’t for] awhile.”

It’s unclear if Garth leaving the show was her choice or if it was made for her. The decision very well may have been an economic one. The ratings have been terrible and the producers are likely trying to cut costs in any way they can.

What do you think? Is it a big loss for the show or has Kelly’s time passed? Why do you think Garth left the show?

    It would be nice if the old characters stayed on the show. I totally agree. It would have made the show even better. I feel like so many stories were left unfinished reagrding the situation with Kelly and Harry (Annie & Dixon’s father), and the relationship with Kelly and Dylan. And what about the marriage drama between Annie and Dixon’s parents??? Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy the show very much and I like the new characters, but something else is missing… the older characters who should be included. Please bring them back!!! The show is not the same w/o them!! If budgeting is an issue, then why not get creativce and think outside the box to RAISE more money as opposed to booting the characters off???
