LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Another original “90210” universe star is leaving the iconic show’s CW reboot.
Rob Estes, who plays West Beverly High School principal Harry Wilson, is exiting the show, he confirmed to Access Hollywood. The star previously played Kyle McBride on several season of “Melrose Place,” a spin-off of the original “90210.”
“This is my final season on 90210 and I wish the show, cast and crew nothing but the best,” the 46-year-old star said in a statement to Access. “I am looking forward to spending time with my kids and exploring other opportunities.”
A rep for “90210” also confirmed the news, hinting at why the star is leaving the drama.
“This is Rob’s last season on 90210. He’s a talented actor and we couldn’t have asked for a better Harry Wilson,” the rep said. “But if fans tune in, they’ll understand why Rob’s character is leaving.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Jennie Garth is through with the show too. On Friday, she told Access, “I’m not really doing it anymore.”
