Actor ROB ESTES is following in his 90210 co-star Jennie Garth's footsteps by announcing he's quitting the show.
The actor, who plays Lori Loughlin's onscreen husband in the Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off, has confirmed he will not return to the next season of the programme.
Estes says in a statement, "This is my final season on 90210 and I wish the show, cast and crew nothing but the best. I am looking forward to spending time with my kids and exploring other opportunities."
A representative for TV network CW insists Estes' departure will be explained in an upcoming storyline: "He's a talented actor and we couldn't have asked for (anyone) better. But if fans tune in, they'll understand why Rob's character is leaving."
The announcement comes just days after his co-star Garth decided to quit 90210 to spend time with her three daughters.
