Looks like the adults in the new “90210” universe are not long for this world.
Just two days after Jennie Garth announced that she’s not really doing the show anymore, we find out that West Bev is not only losing its school counselor, but its principal too.
Sources tell Zap2it that Rob Estes‘ character, Harry Wilson, will be written out of the show by season’s end. And since Harry is father to Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Dixon (Tristan Wilds) and husband to Debbie (Lori Loughlin), you can be sure that the Wilson family has some hard times ahead.
A rep for “90210” confirms, “This is Rob’s last season on ‘90210.’ He’s a talented actor and we couldn’t have asked for a better ‘Harry Wilson.’ But if fans tune in, they’ll understand why Rob’s charcter is leaving.”
Estes released a statement Wednesday (Jan. 20) saying, “I wish the show, cast and crew nothing but the best. I am looking forward to spending time with my kids and exploring other opportunities.”
Word is, Estes’ exit is a result of failed contract negotiations. In other words, cash money. However, Estes apparently leaves “90210” on good terms with producers and with The CW.
Who knows, maybe he’ll show up on another one of the network’s shows.
Estes as a vampire?
