‘90210’ Canceled By The CW

The CW cancels 90210

The CW has canceled the reboot/sequel to the 1990s hit series, Beverly Hills, 90210.

The teen drama series, which has been shortened to just 90210, will end its fifth and final season on May 13.

According to TV Line, the series finale will most likely be paired with a retrospective, although it is unclear at this point whether that will include a look back at the original series as well.

The CW president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement:

“The CW has had five great seasons with America’s favorite zip code, 90210. I’d like to thank the talented cast, producers, and crew for all their hard work and dedication to the series. We are very proud of the West Beverly High alumni.”

The new 90210 premiered back in 2008, with the Wilson family moving from Kansas to the glitzy zip code. Father Harrison “Harry” Wilson (Rob Estes) gets a job as principal at West Beverly High School, and daughter Annie (Shenae Grimes) and son Dixon (Tristan Wilds) are thrust into an awkward situation now that their dad is in a position to constantly keep watch over them.

Several stars from the original series have returned for the reboot including Shannon Doherty and Jennie Garth.

According to Deadline, the series has received less-than-stellar ratings in its Monday timeslot. The February 18 episode drew just 0.55 million viewers. The February 25 episode didn’t fair much better, drawing 0.58 million viewers. The current season has been the worst for the series, with only three of the 15 episodes that have aired so far drawing over one million viewers. The most viewed episode for the fifth season was the fifth episode, which aired on November 12 and garnered 1.16 million viewers.


The series high was the two-part premiere “We’re Not In Kansas Anymore/The Jet Set,” which brought in 4.65 million viewers.

The series finale of 90210 will see a guest appearance by Prince Michael Jackson and a musical performance by the newly reunited Fall Out Boy.
