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

Wed, May 23, 2012 9:26am EDT by 20 Comments

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.

Ivy was an awesome tomboy character — a wonderful contrast to the other young women in the show. I loved how she called people “Dude” and kept her feelings close to her chest, saying “Whatever” when she was disappointed. I wish she were back!

all of you are idiots. ivy and her darker/more serious storylines was the best part of the show. style-wise, she is different from all the other girls— now it’s back to season 1 where all the girls are alike- in looks and in style and in attitude!! totally boring!!

This blows. I think the writers messed up her character with the crappy storylines they gave her during S4. There were several episodes where she wasn’t even there. She used to be so cool. Definitely gonna miss her.

I think its a shame Ivy’s leaving she was a great character! I was sad we didnt get to see her reunite with Diego in Mexico City though- i think they should have shown that! I actually hope Dixon has died- i find him very boring and would rather see Adrianna with Austin or even Navid

You are a cruel-hearted bitch! why would you want Dixon to die? He’s a very good actor. Guess you haven’t watched much HBO “The Wire”. Please do me a favor and go *F*C*K yourself

Woah, that is COMPLETELY unnecessary. Someone has a different opinion that you no need to say that. Grow up.

It isn’t about the actor anyway! It’s about what they felt about the CHARACTER.

I won’t miss the way she always mispronounced Naomi as “Nye-oh-mee.”
