One of the leading stars of “90210” will be MIA from the famous zip code for a stretch.

Tristan Wilds, who plays Dixon on the remake of the popular ’90s series, is taking a break from filming the teen drama because of an illness, according to E! Online.

Wilds, 22, is expected to be missing from approximately four episodes, ones slated as the final episodes of the season. Producers have an easy way of explaining his absence on-screen: The character, who is a singer, will simply be going on tour, according to E!.

There are no specific details available regarding Wilds’ illness and his rep has declined to comment.

“90210″ airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
