'90210' Season 5: Gillian Zinser Not Returning As Ivy

Are you bummed that Ivy’s time in the zip is done, or do you agree it’s time for her to move on?

Color me not surprised. Ivy’s (Gillian Zinser) little trip to see Diego (Yani Gellman) in Mexico has turned into a permanent vacation, as TVLine.com reports that Gillian will not be featured on 90210‘s upcoming fifth season.

While it’s nice to have confirmation of Gillian’s exit, I can’t say I’m at all shocked that Ivy won’t be back next season. In my recap of the season finale, I said my goodbyes to her — OK, my exact words were “good riddance” — and I assumed we wouldn’t be seeing her again. Personally, I think Ivy’s day in the sun should have ended after she married Raj (Manish Dayal), as her season-five story lines were just tragedy (divorce) after tragedy (Raj’s death) after tragedy (Diego’s deporation.)

Maybe she can finally find happiness in Mexico.

¡Adios, Ivy!

How do you feel about Ivy’s exit? Do you hope she returns as a guest star somewhere down the road, or are you cool never seeing her again? Drop a comment with your thoughts on the cut.
