90210 to End After Season 5 Finale
The CW has opted not to visit 90210 anymore.
The Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot will end its five-season run after the May finale, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
90210, which debuted in 2008 to 4.65 million viewers, has dropped sharply in its fifth season, bowing to less than a million viewers in October. Its latest outing only drew roughly 580,000 viewers and a 0.3 rating in the 18-to-49 demographic.
Which other shows should die?
"The CW has had five great seasons with America's favorite zip code, 90210," CW President Mark Pedowitz said in a statement. "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."
In January, Pedowitz said that it was important that long-running shows — such as One Tree Hill and Gossip Girl — get a proper ending. "I'm a big believer in giving fans a very satisfactory conclusion," Pedowitz said. "It's something we as a TV industry need to do. [Viewers] who invested that time deserve that sort of gift."
The series is one of a handful of shows that have ended their multi-year runs this TV season. Check out the full Fall TV scorecard to see what else has been canceled.
90210's series finale is slated to air Monday, May 13 on The CW. Will you miss the series?
