According to the TV Line, Rebecca Sinclair — who took over as showrunner of the CW reboot at the end of the show’s rocky first season — has decided not to renew her contract. The moves comes a week after the soap wrapped production on its third season.
“Rebecca’s contract was up so it was no surprise to us at all,” maintains a rep for CBS Television Studios, which produces the show. ”We have a very strong staff and we have been exploring various people and are confident we’ll find the right replacement.”
According to Deadline’s, Sinclair opted out of renewing her contract with CBS TV Studios because of wanting to spend more time with her infant daughter and to start working on her own projects, mainly a novel, her own pilot script, and a movie. Since production on season three has already wrapped for the year, Sinclair’s departure will not affect the current state of the show. The CW/CBS TV Studios is actively looking for a replacement for the show’s fourth season.
The shakeup is not expected to have an impact the show’s renewal chances.
So is Sinclair’s departure from 90210 a good or bad thing?
