Actress Shannen Doherty won’t be returning to Fox Broadcasting Co.’s “Beverly Hills, 90210” next season, according to production sources.
A spokeswoman for Spelling TV, which produces the ensemble drama, had no response to the latest report of Doherty’s exit from the series.
Similar rumors arose at the end of the 1992-93 term and Doherty ultimately returned, though at this point the production company has apparently opted not to bring her back.
In its fourth season, “90210” has already been renewed for 1994-95 and is one of Fox Broad-casting Co.’s highest-rated shows.
Doherty’s offscreen exploits have provided ample fodder for tabloids, fueling conjecture regarding her status with the series. A spokeswoman for the actress declined comment.
