Let’s just put it this way: The CW’s 90210 is still finding itself.

So which actor—who has been with the show since the series launched in 2008—just confirmed their departure at the end of this season? What did they have to say about their exit and why it’s happening now?

Lori Loughlin, who plays Dixon (Tristan Wilds) and Annie’s (Shenae Grimes) mom Debbie Wilson, confirmed her exit from the series. Seeing as how the kids are moving on up to college next year, they will apparently have less need for parental guidance. Loughlin tells us, “I have enjoyed the past few years working on 90210 and adore all of the cast and crew, as well as the team at the CW and CBS TV Studios. I am grateful for having had the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful show.”

No word yet back from Ryan Eggold, who plays high school teacher Ryan Matthews, regarding reports of his exit from the series at the end of this current third season.
