After finding out that “90210” is going the gay route again, we were a bit scared for them.
When Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) rode the gay train for a few episodes in Season 2 then got off at heterosexual station again, many fans and critics were not pleased by the message that sent about sexuality.
But according to The CW, this time it’s the real deal and now we can reveal who it is.
A source close to the production confirms to Zap2it that Trevor Donovan’s character, Teddy Montgomery, is the male character who is coming out in Season 3.
Our choices for the character who will be coming out were Navid (Michael Steger), Liam (Matt Lanter) and Teddy. In our poll asking whom Zap2it readers believed the gay character would be, the No. 1 choice was Teddy at 55% of the vote. Nice job, Zappers!
In the Season 2 finale, we watched Teddy get back together (again) with Silver (played by Jessica Stroup), so we’re interested to see how the writers will spin that storyline. We hear rehearsals between Donovan and his love interest, played by Kyle Riabko (as reported by EW), are currently underway.
We reached out to The CW for a statement, but they were unable to respond to us before the article posted. We’ll update when they do.
How do you feel about “90210” taking Teddy down the gay road? Do you trust that they’ll handle it well this time around?
