The CW announced today it is pulling the plug on 90210. After a five year run, the finale will air May 13.
TVLine reports 90210’s ratings have taken a major plunge since the beginning of the 2012-2013 season. The slide has seen viewership fall from one million in Oct. 8, 2012 to under 600,000 this week.
A sequel to the longtime hit Beverly Hills 90210, the series stars Shenae Grimes, Tristan Wilds, AnnaLynne McCord, Jessica Stroup, Michael Steger, Jessica Lowndes, and Matt Lanter.
“The CW has had five great seasons with America’s favorite zip code, 90210,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz in a statement. “I’d like to thank the talented cast, producers, and crew for all their hard work and dedication to the series.”
TVLine expects the finale to include a retrospective. Plus, it is rumored there will be a guest appearance by Prince Michael Jackson and performance by recently reunited band Fall Out Boy.
