When Trevor Donovan, the actor who plays teen Teddy Montgomery on 90210, found out that his character was going to come out this season, he wasn’t sure what to expect. Soon, though, Donovan realized there was nothing to fear: “We were all on the same page about the timeline, and it not just being a flash in the pan storyline, but really showing a realistic arc of a kid coming to terms with who he is,” he told EW last week. “I have been so happy with the way that it has unfolded, the way they wrote it, and with the responses. It makes me feel proud.”

Lords and ladies of the Royal Spoiler court, your TV scooper has taken a break from her shameless obsession with the Royal Wedding to bring you a spot of TV scoop fit for Royals and commoners alike.
Quick programming note to all the lovely readers who contacted me thinking I was dead/injured/buried alive on Tuesday when you were hoping for a Spoiler Room: We are on summer schedule, meaning you’ll get the column once a week until fall season. But perhaps I’ll pop in on some Tuesdays with special treats (“perhaps” = “of course!”). And as always, keep a close eye on ITV for daily scoopage.
On to the fun! As always, you great people can send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and @EWSandraG on Twitter. See you next week!
‘CRIMINAL MINDS’ FINALE WILL TACKLE BAU’s UNCERTAIN FUTURE
With some key cast members of Criminal Minds still without contracts for next season (i.e., Shemar Moore and the beloved Thomas Gibson), exec producer Erica Messer has penned a cliffhanger for the May 18 finale that will nod to the team’s shaky future — but not with guns and explosions. It will tackle the financial realities of crime fighting — and possible cutbacks in BAU. “It’s a more authentic version of ‘Our team is in jeopardy,’ ” she says. “This instead is, ‘There could be big trouble here, hopefully not,’ but we need to at least acknowledge that it’s on the horizon.” READ FULL STORY
The CW just announced early renewals of five shows for next season. Ready?
Gossip Girl, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and 90210 are all coming back, along with a first-ever all-star edition of America’s Next Top Model.
All will return next fall. None are huge surprises — Vampire Diaries is the network’s biggest hit, Gossip and 90210 are solid-ish and Friday’s Supernatural has helped keep the network strong on TV’s toughest night. Doing an all-star edition of veteran Top Model also makes sense as a way to potentially boost its numbers after 16 cycles. As for the shows that were not renewed… READ FULL STORY

'The Big Bang Theory,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'NCIS,' 'Modern Family': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
Happy Tuesday, gang.
I hope you enjoy the offerings this morning, but before you dig in, an announcement: Friday’s mega scoops (the paragraphs you see before “side dishes”) will be READER’S CHOICE and will be chosen purely based on your e-mail requests. Most requested shows win. I’ll be picking three.
So take a moment to dream. If you could have scoop on ANY show, which would it be, and what would you want to know. Again, these will be based purely on volume of requests. (Usually, I pick based on buzzworthiness.)
So cast your vote by emailing me a request to email@example.com or request via Twitter (@EWSandraG).
See you Friday! READ FULL STORY

The CW will likely pick up a fourth season of 90210 but one major player is planning to leave the zip code: EW has learned that showrunner Rebecca Sinclair has decided not to renew her deal. The news was first reported on TVLine.
“Rebecca’s contract was up so it was no surprise to us at all,” said a spokesperson for CBS Television Studios, which produces the drama for the CW. ”We have a very strong staff and we have been exploring various people and are confident we’ll find the right replacement.”
90210 just wrapped production on its third season. Sinclair, who joined the show after the first year, was credited for injecting some much needed luster into the teen angst series. It’s unclear who will take her place.

'Castle,' 'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'Grey's Anatomy': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room
TV, I wish I knew how to quit you.
Actually…no I don’t. Without you, we’d all be bored, heartless, apathetic loners. Let’s never part. I’ll make you a deal: You stay highly entertaining, I’ll spoil, and we will all promise to consume our television programming greedily. And judging by what’s coming up on Castle, Outsourced, How I Met Your Mother, Gossip Girl and a ton of other shows, you’re going to be keeping up your end of the bargain.

And if you happen to find yourself without a Valentine this weekend, here’s my box of Godivas to you: Raising Hope scoop from Greg Garcia, news on two big episodes of Fringe and Castle, a chat with a Grey’s Anatomy cast member about what could be the next heart-wrenching death, and a talk with Gossip Girl‘s new villainess (who may turn out to have a soft spot or two).

Parting is such sweet sorrow, Dixon and Annie’s mom! Lori Loughlin admitted to EW that she’s ready to leave 90210 at the end of the season. Loughlin’s character Debbie has been hot for teacher this year (played by Ryan Eggold) since her husband Harry (Rob Estes) left the show last season.
“Ryan and I will finish the season and then we’re done. There’s just not much for me to do,” said Loughlin, who’s been on the CW drama since it premiered in 2008. “It is a very big cast and it is hard to service all of us. The focus of the show is the kids. The parents were essentially there to service the story lines of the kids, and occasionally we got a few separate story lines, but it just wasn’t really working in a way that all of us had enough to do. The CW has a demographic that they appeal to, and they do it very well.”
Leaving the famous zip code also means she’s available for new gigs. “I think we will wrap with enough time that it could work for me to join another show. I am not sure how they are going to handle the whole exit,” Loughlin said. “I would guess they may wrap some things up but then again they have already asked me if I would come back for a some episodes next year if they need me. I don’t think they will be shipping us back to Kansas or anything. [The kids] are going off to college so I am sure changes will be made in that respect. They will probably just move them out of the house.”
Loughlin’s final episode will air in May. — With reporting from Carrie Bell
