As reported earlier today, The CW has decided to cancel 90210 after five seasons on the air. The ratings have really slipped this season so it doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Hopefully the producers had time to craft a decent finale.
The network has issued a press release about the cancelation and has included the finale dates for other shows: The Carrie Diaries, Hart of Dixie, Arrow, Supernatural, The Vampire Diairies, Beauty and the Beast, Nikita, and Cult.
Here are the details:
AFTER FIVE SEASONS, “90210” BIDS FAREWELL WITH A SERIES FINALE ON MAY 13
THE CW ANNOUNCES SEASON FINALE DATES FOR ITS PRIMETIME SERIES
February 28, 2013 (Burbank, CA) – After five seasons of new loves, old flames and shocking betrayals, the stars of 90210 will bid farewell to the world-famous zip code, it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW. With seven original episodes left to air, the show will sign off with a series finale on Monday, May 13 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET).
“The CW has had five great seasons with America’s favorite zip code, 90210,” said Pedowitz. “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.”
During this final season, the characters put their relatively carefree days at West Beverly High behind them and launched into adulthood, with only their friendships to lean on. The series stars Shenae Grimes as Annie Wilson, Tristan Wilds as Dixon Wilson, AnnaLynne McCord as Naomi Clark, Jessica Stroup as Silver, Michael Steger as Navid Shirazi, Jessica Lowndes as Adrianna Tate-Duncan and Matt Lanter as Liam Court.
