As previously announced, Lori Loughlin and Ryan Eggold have both exited the series, paving the way for West Bev's brightest youngsters to head to college — or get knocked up, like Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) did. Showrunner Rebecca Sinclair also left the series, replaced by Life Unexpected's Patti Carr and Lara Olsen.
