Over the weekend, castmembers of The CW’s 90210 attended their final wrap party. The network recently cancelled the show after five seasons on the air. Because of the timing, it doesn’t sound like fans will get a true series finale.
According to accounts of the party, each of the actors took turns making a farewell speech from the DJ booth about his/her time on the show. There was reportedly plenty of vodka and cupcakes available, along with a giant chocolate cake that read “Thank you for 5 wonderful seasons.”
Here’s what some of the actors had to say about the cancellation, via Twitter:
AnnaLynne McCord: “Hi Every1! Thk u 4 all of the spprt 4 so long I’m srry u aren’t gtting the proper send off u deserve, but plz kno how much ur luv means 2me!”

Matt Lanter: “The last 5 years has been a ride unimaginable. I’m so blessed, honored & humbled to have been a part of it. #90210Forever” “Thank you to the awesome fans, my amazing brothers and sisters on the cast, the CW and CBS.”
Trevor Donovan: “Very grateful I had the opportunity to play a meaningful character,… who just happened to be gay.. ..xo #ThanksForTheMemories”
Tristan Wilds: “What a day…”
And Beverly Hills, 90210 castmember Jason Priestley wrote, “#9O21O Lasted half as long as the original… Not bad guys…”
Though Priestley never acted on the series, he did direct one episode in 2009.
