After five seasons, the CW has decided to cancel their reprise of the hit show, 90210. The show hasn’t been doing so well with ratings so it shouldn’t come as a surprise. According to TV Line, this season alone slid from a million viewers and a 0.5 demo rating (with its opener) to, at last tally, under 600,000 viewers and a 0.3, shedding a significant chunk of its Carrie Diaries lead-in.
“The CW has had five great seasons with America’s favorite zip code, 90210,” president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement. He continued, “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.”
TV Line has learned exclusively that the series will come to come to an end in May of this year. The series finale is expected to air on Monday, May 13. The original 90210 series from the 90s lasted ten seasons. A few of the original cast members originally had roles in this series, but the CW decided to focus on the new cast. Those original cast members included Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty and Tori Spelling.
What do you think of the cancellation of 90210. Did you see it coming? Were you even watching it anymore? I personally stopped watching a while ago and only recently got back into it. At least I’ll know enough of what is going on to appreciate the series finale. Share your thoughts in the comments.
