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."
In the tradition of inaugural Scream victim Drew Barrymore, Pretty Little Liars' Lucy Hale and 90210's Shenae Grimes will play Sherrie and Trudie, the first victims of ol' Ghostface in the opening sequence of sequel Scre4m.

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.)

West Beverly High will soon need a new principal.

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...
