Dustin Milligan: Dropped From 90210

Dustin Milligan: Dropped From 90210

Canadian actor Dustin Milligan won’t be returning as a regular on the next season of 90210.

“Everyone loves Dustin,” an insider tells EW. “There was just a feeling that the character had run its course.”

90210 boss Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair recently admitted the first season had faults. She shared, “If Gossip Girl is about youth in New York, I want to [make 90210 more] about youth in L.A. and Beverly Hills… The show tried to be a lot of things to a lot of people in its first season. I think the center lies with the generation of kids that are in high school now. I’m not interested in casting people for stunt value (90210 alums Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty and Tori Spelling).”

Of note: Matt Lanter, aka bad boy Liam, was recently promoted to a series regular.

    I’m just curious, do a lot of people watch this show? I’ ve never seen it, it looks awful to me…

  • Bhcolin

    oh hell no — she better not take kelly taylor off. I love the relationship between Silver and Kelly. And I think people have watched cause they do want to see the old characters. I want more Brenda, and I’m excited for Donna to hit the zip. So if they remove those characters it removes the excitement for me – it becomes just another Gossip Girl and not a show that can pull from it’s rich history of the original.

  • kim

    are you kidding? that’s bad news right there.

  • diva

    what kind Fuckery is this! I liked his character oh well that’s what u get for tryin to make something “new again”

  • bam

  • Joy

  • tORI AND dEAN rEALITY HITS

    Sounds like Tori and Dean will be scrambling to do another reality show if she gets cut from the new 90120… maybe they should call it Tori and Dean I Love Money 3

  • amina

  • phoenix

    Where are you getting your sources from? And is this confirmed? I’m not a HUGE fan of Ethan the character but the show won’t be the same without him! :( I wonder how they’re going to get rid of him…..

  • Cat

    NOOOOOOOOOOO PLEASSE NOT DUSTIN HES THE BEST CHARAKTER OF THE BOYS HES SO SWEET NOOOO :(((((((((((((

    WHAT! I love Dustin, they better not cut his character!

  • saudia

    omg I hated the character of Ethan, sooo annoying.. maybe this new guy Liam will be better and more appealing .. that’s too bad for Dustin though

  • Link
  • stephen

    lame! he was one of the best eye candies on the show. I prolly won’t watch it anymore since it competes with idol.

  • Oz

    Well this is good news. Now I don’t have to DVR this crap anymore, instead of DVRing and then fast forwarding until I saw an old school cast member.

  • sdfdn

    bullshit!!!

  • 90210_fan90

    Honestly I think this a huge mistake. How could Dustin’s character “run it’s course?” He is one of the major characters! And who is Annie going to be in a relationship with now? Yes..I am happy to see Adam Gregory as a series regular now, but come on 90210 bosses..WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

    Please keep us updated J.J.

  • dundies

    how can you drop a character, when there was no character development?

  • Kim120

    Great news, he was the lead and still brought nothing to the show.

  • Daniella

    well that kinda sucks…?
    he’s my favorite character on the show, he’s barely developed a relationship with Annie, and they’re just dropping him?
    arghhh.
    i hate matt lanter.

  • Daniella

    well that kinda sucks…?

    i hate matt lanter.

    i hate matt lanter.

  • chels

    what? wasnt he the main character along Shenae Grimes, jessica and annelyne, adam and others?

  • Jess

    Are they serious? They can’t do this to me! 90210 to me is the relationship between Annie and Ethan. I’m so gonna stop watching, just like I did when Brenda was droped from Beverly Hills 90210. BH was Brenda/Dylan and 90210 IS Annie/Ethan.

    Another show destroyed. Just like OTH, The OC, and probably Gossip Girl. They just can’t get it right!

  • Kasey

    Good he was boring as hell on the show.

  • Faith

    I watched the show a couple of times when I was bored. Not the greatest acting, plotlines…just something to pass the time by.

    It’s too bad they’re letting this guy go. I think that main female character whose name I do not remember would have made the best couple with him.

  • Danielle

    90210 without Kelly, Brenda, or any of the original cast members. Just another example of how shows don’t care about their roots. If they don’t include them then Im done with the show.

  • Kasey

    Good decision, the whole Annie/Ethan thing was so lame which lead people to liking Sliver/Dixon way more.

  • Cat

    this is the end of the series if he does it is he was the best I do not look to me more

  • Cat

    then I better watch gossip girl because nobody goes

  • Cat

    producers ruin the series

  • Cat

    the producers ruin the series

  • Jamie

    His characther has “run its course”?LMFAO!!

    More like, the bitch was cut off the show!!

  • TTT

    Bye.

    P.S. You was boring as fvck

  • Carolline

    OMG NOOOOOOOOOO! SHIT.

  • ferdis

    Couldnt be Shenae Grimes? She is so so so sooooo boring. She acts like she is in a phonoaudiology appointment. Her face is so funny, full of unecessary expressions. So strange. When she gets old and uses botox in her face i have no idea how she will continue to work.

  • phoenix

    hahahahaha. 100% agree with # 36 – you read my mind.

  • k

    of all the characters they cut ETHAN? Hey 90210, how about try cutting ANNIE(aka Shenae Grimes) FIRST!

  • Cat

    I miss Ethan & annie already together, I love the two: (((

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]

    `wow.. that’s fcuked up. his character wasn’t cool or anything.. but he wasn’t lame either. oh well.

  • ANNE

    WHAT THE HELL! i am still tuning into this shit show only because of him, now im definatley not going to watch it! what are they thinking? and that Liam guy is soo ugly and annoying,if anything get rid of the mean girl who cant act for shit

  • NCmin

    Great move

  • Sarah

    Best move ever. In 1 episode already the Liam character has done what the Ethan character hasn’t in a whole half season. I’m still tuning and now we a strong 3 w/ room for one more.

  • mary

    wtf…
    him and shenae were a couple for like 2 episodes!!
    they seemed.. perfectt WORK THAT FOR HIM.
    sheesh.

  • andreanne

    it sucks big time

  • mare

    People watch for Shannon Doherty, Jennie Garth..Not going to make it now…Need old writer and AARON spelling (who is dead!)

  • Sarah

    Oh please people watch for more than those two. And it’s the 18-35 age market that’s holding the show, plus it’s one of the top on DVR, don’t even begin w/ that nonsense.

  • Shaylee

    I love this guy in The Butterfly Effect 2 along hottie Eric Lively. Yummy!
