How will 90210 make the leap to college? By leaving out academics and focusing on the social calendar. New showrunners Patti Carr and Lara Olsen say the recently graduated West Beverly gang won't be dealing with living in the dorms or taking final exams or choosing their majors in the new season. "The aspect of college we're focusing on is the fun of it, the wish fulfillment, the things that kids look forward to," Carr says. "Also, not all of the characters are even attending college...

Prior to shooting their May 16 season finale graduation episode, many of the 90210 actors had never worn a cap and gown. "I did graduate from high school, but I never got to do the whole walk across the stage and receive your diploma thing," says Shenae Grimes, whose Annie hopes to attend Carnegie Mellon in the fall. "I think it was a first for almost half our cast."
Annie Wilson has already killed a man — who can forget the "Kansas skank" breakdown that led to it? — and gotten involved with a drug-dealing psycho. Now, she's interning for a woman who would love to make little Annies of her own. Will Annie defy her mom and sell her eggs to her boss? Or is this really the end of Annie's bad judgment? Shenae Grimes talked to TVGuide.com about Annie's precious eggs, where Jasper went and how long Liam fans will have to put with up Charlie.
Filming this week's episode of 90210 was hard on the boys. Michael Steger didn't sleep. Blair Redford's first reaction was a depressed sigh. Tristan Wilds said the rehearsals were crazy.
Wearing only a pair of firemen pants and suspenders, Matt Lanter lowered his voice between takes on set in Long Beach and confided, "I can't say I'm going to be upset when this day is over."
90210's Matt Lanter reveals Who will give Liam a run for Annie's love
But, oh, gentleviewers, they did it all for you. And by "all," I mean performing a striptease-esque dance on stage to the tune of Sean Kingston's "Fire Burning" for tonight's episode.
The number is all in the name of...
When we last saw 90210's Mr. Matthews in the Season 2 finale, he stole a school bus while drunk out of his mind, slammed his car into the West Beverly school sign, and drove away in a blaze of fire. So where will we find the baby daddy-to-be at the start of the new season?
TVGuide.com caught up with actor Ryan Eggold to find out if the prospect of fatherhood will help the troubled teacher clean up his act, what to expect with his relationship with the baby's mother, Jen, and if Naomi and her sister will be making amends.

Liam (Lanter) has confessed to the coins, Annie (Shenae Grimes) has confessed to the crash, and now there's nothing to stop things from heating up between them — and soon. (90210 returns Monday, Sept. 13 at 8/7c on the CW.)
"We'll get romantic in the first couple of episodes. We share a kiss," Lanter teased during a break from filming a rather hot scene — not involving Annie — from a future episode...

While Liam (Matt Lanter) may be attempting to make amends with Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord), he's momentarily distracted when Ivy (Gillian Zinser) arrives. She's a cool California chick who joins the surfing team -- and the West Bev boys' club. Zinser sat down with TVGuide.com to introduce us to 90210's version of Spicoli and to dish on how Ivy will affect Naomi and Liam's rocky road to relationship recovery.
Exclusive: Meet 90210's new surfer chick
TVGuide.com: Ivy is the quintessential surfer chick who hangs out with the guys.
Gillian Zinser: I got a little Spicoli going on. [Laughs] Ivy is fun as hell. She's definitely the quintessential California girl, but she's smart. She's really smart and sassy and quick-witted. She's totally one of the guys, as she's part of the surf team and demands her respect in that manner. But a lot of that confident, bro'd out shtick is soon to be broken down when...
The new season of 90210 has not been kind to young lovers. Silver and Dixon are still on the outs. Liam broke Naomi's heart in last season's finale; her older married lover then stomped on it a bit too. Navid is attempting to not be jealous of Teddy, lest it drive a wedge between him and Adrianna. And the closest thing that newly ostracized Annie has found to love involved a bungalow, a cellphone pic and a mass emailing.
When will Cupid visit West Bev? Not any time soon, says the cast. On a visit to the show's Los Angeles set, TVGuide.com asked them about their upcoming storylines and said a little prayer that these crazy kids just might find happiness one of these days...
