Two new characters for 90210's fifth season have been revealed.
The CW series, which stars the likes of Shenae Grimes, AnnaLynne McCord and Jessica Lowndes, will feature a newcomer called Tyler, "a club promoter who has a knack for spotting new talent in the music field".
According to E!, 90210 will also introduce a "charming tech hottie" named Alec who has been likened to Justin Timberlake's portrayal of Sean Parker in The Social Network.
It has been revealed that Gillian Zinser (Ivy) will not be back for the show's fifth season.
Grimes recently confessed that she was "baffled" by some of her character Annie's storylines in season four, particularly one that saw her work as an escort.
"I had zero connection to her storyline whatsoever," she explained. "To me, it seemed really off-base that my character would even be behaving that way.
"I couldn't really wrap my head around the thought process behind what was going on."
90210 will return to The CW this fall, airing in a new Monday night slot at 8/7c.
